AMERICAN LEGION

From the Issue: 
September 2011
Our mission as Legion members of Post 56, here in Troy, is to bring awareness to the service, sacrifice and needs of service members.  What is currently a handicap to this mission is a lack of information regarding the identity of service men and woman of our community who are serving or are veterans. 
    Here we are, approaching the end of our summer.  It was a hot one this year and it brings to my mind the discomfort our service personnel must be feeling on the other side of the world as they carry out their assigned missions in this war on terrorism.  Temperatures can reach more than 130 degrees in the Middle East.  The temperature is usually the least of their concerns, however, as the heightened awareness of their life threatening environment allows them no time to take attention from their immediate situation.

TROY SENIORS

From the Issue: 
September 2011
The summer has flown by and now it is time to get set for fall, how time flies!  The Seniors had a busy summer, hot as it was.  We held our monthly first Saturday of the month buffet breakfasts, participated in the Town Lawn Party by having a table with yard sale items and cookies etc. for sale.  We took two trips which were very well attended, and enjoyed by all who went.  We also held our annual picnic where we were served by the Interact Club, a great meal. Now it is time to settle back and work hard to earn money to support our other planned functions.

We hold our buffet breakfast each first Saturday of the month at Kimball Hall from 7-10 at the cost of $5 for adults and $3.50 for those under 12.  A great meal, all you can eat and large selection.  Bring your family and friends, some plan to meet with friends to start off the weekend.  Give it a try!

TROY AMERICAN LEGION PROJECT

From the Issue: 
September 2011
The Troy American Legion Post has adopted another project.  We are collecting coupons to send to the soldiers serving overseas.  Coupons can be new or expired for up to six months.  The commissaries overseas will accept them either way.  The Minute Mart Convince Store has agreed to allow us to put a coupon drop box on their counter.  This will give the entire community an opportunity to help soldiers overseas.  We would like to thank those who have helped—without you we could not do this project.

HELPING HAND CENTER

From the Issue: 
September 2011
The Bible talks about what a woman of noble character does.  "She extends a helping hand to the poor and opens her arms to the needy".  As always, God wants us to care about others as much as we care about other things of this world.  Would you like to be a man or woman of noble character?   One way to help would be to donate fall clothing that you can no longer use.  Make sure the clothing is clean, in style and something you would be proud to give.  Please leave all donations when we are open or in the white bin located in front of our building.  Another suggestion would be to donate any excess fall vegetables in your garden.

HELPING HAND

From the Issue: 
July/August 2011
God says, "If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too, will cry out and not be answered."  God was obviously very concerned about our friends and neighbors who have lost jobs and are having a hard time making ends meet in this current economical situation.  He challenges each and every one of us to help make a difference.  God is reminding us that any one of us could suddenly be laid off, have a major illness or even a disaster could place us in a position where we, too, need help.

TROY SENIORS

From the Issue: 
July/August 2011
A big welcome to summer, we waited so long.  Now it has arrived, the seniors have a full schedule planned for the warm weather.  We have a picnic planned for July 27th at 12 noon at Meadowood Pavilion.  This is always a great meal and we will be out in the great outdoors.

Our August meeting will be held August 24 at Kimball Hall at 1 PM at Kimball Hall with a Penny Social held after our meeting.  Please bring an item for this event.  We will also be taking a trip on August 10th with a clambake and a 90 minute cruise around the busy harbor and innermost islands of Maine.  We will see as many as 7 lighthouses.

For those who have not paid their $10 yearly dues I will still be collecting them at the July meeting.  And don’t forget the buffet breakfast held on the first Saturday of each month.  A great breakfast for just $5 for adults and $3.50 for those under 12.  The breakfast is the way we earn money to have trips etc. so we need your participation (and bring the family and friends).  Good food and Good company, what more could you ask for???
