A delegation from the Post attended the banquet last Saturday at the Hotel LaSalle which was the opening gun of the legion's Service and Membership campaign for 1921. This drive is primarily a service drive, and, through that service, a membership campaign. Judge K.M. Landis and William R. McCauley, the state commander, were the principal speakers and they began with a bang! Commander McCauley spoke at Glencoe Wednesday of this week, and the Wilmette Post was well represented.

The next meeting of the Post is Monday, April 4, a the Community House and will be an evening of something besides business--this will not be a business meeting.

The Legion is continuing its plan for a home to be erected to the memory of Wilmette's fallen heroes.

The body of Louis Bruch, our comrade, has just arrived in America and is to rest in Buffalo, N.Y. Each member of the Post feels deep regret that he cannot go there to pay last honors to this brave soldier.

On Memorial Day the Post is to have charge of the Community parade and services, and many preparations have already been made. All the local patriotic organizations, the Fire and Police departments, and many others from outside the village, will participate. The evening before Memorial Day the Post will hold a memorial service open to the village and speakers of national reputation will appear on the program. Further announcement will be made later.
