Greetings 6th District –

Well, as I write this Thanksgiving is behind us, and Christmas and the New Year are just ahead.  It is my sincere hope that you all remembered to celebrate the reason for the season. “For God so loved the world that he sent down his only Son to save us.” Remember it isn’t in giving or getting that we are saved, it is in remembering the meaning of what this season truly represents. The ultimate gift of love from God to His people.

Please remember to take time in 2024 to check in on someone in your community that you haven’t seen or heard from in a while. We all have challenges we need to overcome, and a friendly face, and understanding ear always goes a long way to pull us through. You never know when a friendly face, or a warm “Hello” can make a difference or save a life. BE THE ONE to reach out.

From Wendy and I and our entire family – We hope you had a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR to all of our American Legion Family. May the Peace, Love, and Joy of the season continue to be with each of you all through 2024.

 

May God bless and keep us all
