Tables are in place, decorations have been unpacked and are going up, the caterer has his final count and there is just a little more work to do.
This Christmas is especially important to Post 6. We have a 98 year history that has seen us build two post homes and we are about to break ground in 2018 on our new site.
I like to remind everyone I meet that what we have today and what were are building for tomorrow is the sum of all the efforts of thousands of men and women who have called themselves American Legionnaires and Auxiliary. Brick by brick (and at our first home log by log, cut on site and assembled by our members), member by member, and event by event, Post No. 6 has stood tall as an example to other North Carolina and national Posts. We have also contributed no less than three (we think four) American Legion NC State Commanders during our historic years.
But, I also remind everyone that it is the individual member that makes it all possible. More on that later, because “That’s another story.”
We hope that you will share some of your personal Post stories with others at the Christmas Party Social Hour that starts at 5:30 pm. In fact, the best part of the evening may be the social hour. It includes snacks, wine, and cheese enjoyed to the warm and inviting music of Christmas with all the memories of seasons past.
Here is what Cathy Ladd of the Auxiliary shared earlier today. This year we are doing something special. We are having a “Wine Tasting” prior to our dinner. We will have four different tables with pairings of wines and cheeses and we still need a few volunteers to help us serve. It will be a great way to learn about wine and have fun as well!”
On behalf of the Post Commander, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, as we enter our 99th year of service to the community of Chapel Hill and surrounding areas.
