PARKLAND POST NO. 228 AMERICAN LEGION .Meetings every second and fourth l't·i<lay at 8:00 p.m. in the Sunshine Hall Last Friday's merting took on the form of an observance of the 30th birthday of the American Legion as a national organization. Everything was complete even to the birthday cake, which was taken care of by the ladies of the auxiliary. Fourth District Commander Al Bragg was prcsent and was assisted by Bill Bierer from Sumner, who gave an enlightening speech on the f~unding and history to the present of the Amcricrrn Legion. The meeting also saw 10 new members joining the ranks via initiation rites. Bill Bierer also took care of this in his usual inirnitable manner. A fine looking lot of new members these were, too -we arc certainly proud and fortunatc in having them. We can use their talents in the program of the American Legion. Those initiated were: l\1r. and Mrs. Ralph McLaren, Melville Wilson, Joseph Schorba, John Korsmo, Bob Toft, Jack Cimino, Bill Reiss, Howard Motteler and Lon Rutherford. To these new members we say welcome and thanks a lot for showing your interest in the organization. New members mean new workers and new workers mean that we can accomplish more and more of the programs set before us. We hope that they will help us make every meeting as successful as the last one was·--40% attendance isn't bad-not with the membership standing at, 101. This is a singular honor and not many posts can boast as great a percentage of attendance as we do. Maybe the fact we do accounts for the fact that the things we accomplish are done just a little bit easier than they are in other places.

The Parkland Mothrr-Singers, under tlw direction of Mrs. C. 0. Olson, will present a _joint concert and fashion show Friday, March '.'.5, at 8 p.ni. in the school auditoriurn.

Normally, the Ski Bowl closes around the middle of :March, but due to the unprececkntcd snowfall this winter, the skiing is expected to remain excellent for at least two extra weeks.
