McLouth Happenings

September 19, 2007

American Legion Auxiliary Post No. 393 will play host to a meeting for all veterans and their families who wish to learn more about their earned Veterans Affairs benefits at 8:50 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 22. Veterans and their family members who have specific questions regarding VA benefits are urged to attend this meeting, which will be at the Fire Station, which is on the corner of West Lucy and Franklin streets in McLouth.

The American Legion assists veterans and their dependents in filing for benefits through service in the armed forces. American Legion members authored the original GI Bill of Rights during World War II and have pioneered many veterans programs, including compensation for veterans exposed to radiation and Agent Orange and investigating Gulf War Syndrome.

This meeting is part of the Legion's annual American Legion Veterans Affairs Tour, when state and district officers visit each of the more than 330 American Legion posts throughout Kansas.

Members are reminded to bring cookies that will be delivered to the veterans at Eisenhower VA Medical Center in Leavenworth.

Forty years ago, three churches --Edmonds Evangelical United Brethren, McLouth Evangelical United Brethren, and McLouth Methodist -- united as one, becoming the McLouth United Methodist Church. They will celebrate this event with a worship service at 11 a.m., and an open house at 2 p.m., on Sunday, Sept. 30. Following the worship service, prior to the celebration, the Youth Fellowship will provide a Spaghetti Dinner at 12:15 p.m. Cost of the dinner is by donation. Come and share in the fun and fellowship. All who have ever been part of the ministry and history of the church are invited. Photos or videos taken in the church or at church-sponsored events are requested. The church will copy them for historical records, and return them. If you would like to submit photos in advance of the celebration, please bring or mail them to the church (P.O. Box 159, McLouth 66054).
