SONS OF THE LEGION SQUADRON 255

 FROM THE COMMANDER'S DESK

Thanks to SONs for Helping with Monday Night Football Food October 8!

A big thanks to Joe Hernandez and Larry Emerson for providing a Hearty Grilled Sandwich and Delicious sides for the Monday Night on October 8 on short notice request.  Dang, the food was so good we forgot who won the game.  Also, we forgot to have an official photograph of the cooks, but Joe provided great support and made it easy.  Thanks you Joe.  All enjoyed the food.  (Note: extra chicken in the sandwich will be provided next time).

Reminder  - Next Sons of American Legion Meeting on Wednesday, November 7.

Always on the First Wednesday of the month at 4:30 pm.  Come on down.

Tidbit – Why is Venus so Hot?

Some might say Venus is hot because it is so close to the Sun.  And that would be partially true, but unlike the moon which is hot on one side and cold on the back side, Venus has an atmosphere with a very considerable amount of Carbon Dioxide (CO2).  It is the Carbon Dioxide that holds in the heat from the Sun and makes it sooo HOT.  Makes you wonder what extra Carbon Dioxide will do the Earth’s Temperature!
