As you are aware, the Post finished a raffle for a Dallas Cowboy’s Ladies watch which was quite successful. One of the reasons for this was that the watch was donated. The only expense was for the raffle tickets. I was going to announce who donated the watch at our January business meeting, but I got my cue cards mixed up. At this time, I would like to thank Mr. Bill Staton for his generous donation. Bill has been a very involved member the past few years and He certainly has my sincere appreciations. We were able to do (2) breakfast events in January. Our next scheduled breakfast will be in April. My thanks to all of you that have helped out with the kitchen duties. For God and Country, John Header, Commander Arlington Post 60 The American Legion
