     Bob Wyatt shared about the various construction projects and innovative programs through the past one hundred years that have caused Leeton to be considered a leader in educational development.

     Dr. Dan Lowry, special speaker for the day, shared the importance of small schools in the educating of today's youth. He pointed out the many advantages in developing self awareness, self confidence and self motivation provided.

     Others on the program were Jerry Arwood again bringing attention to the Veterans of America and Betty Ward who presented the memorial before the 100+ in attendance.

VIETNAM MEMORIAL TO BE IN WINDSOR
June 30 to July 4

     The Moving Wall, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Memorial, is coming to Windsor, Missouri, June 30-July 4.  The American Legion Post #82 would like to issue a statewide invitation to Missourians to come and honor the Vietnam Veterans. Come to give them a proper welcome home and come to remember.

     From 1961 to 1973, the United States military’s finest soldiers slogged through the jungles of Vietnam fighting a war where at least one thousand soldiers went missing in action, 150 thousand were wounded, and 58,220 soldiers died.

     More soldiers died in Vietnam than there are seats in Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Those soldier’s names live forever, carved on the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.

     Sadly, soldiers from our own communities have a place on that wall, and in the hearts of their families, their friends, and the souls of every man and woman who answered the call to serve their nation.

     We grieve for them all, we lift their families up with honor, we recognize their friends who lived through the war and who came home to a different kind of hostile environment.

     You can stand with the families and friends of these soldiers whose names are on that wall, hear their stories, and understand the sacrifice they – and their families – made to this country June 30 thru July 4.

LOUNGE CLOSES FOR SUMMER
Re-Open Labor Day

     Tennie Seward, owner of the Leeton Lounge, reported that as the sun continues to provide light during summer months people are less likely to come to the Lounge. Because he has farming to do it seemed reasonable to close for the summer for both reasons. His birthday celebration climaxed a good year. They reopen after Labor Day.

JOYOUS JOURNEY OF LIFE
BY JOYCE RILEY

     “USE YOUR TIME WISELY” :In the days of our youth, we feel like we will live forever. We waste our time chasing after meaningless things, always looking for a thrill of some sort or another. The thought never occurs to us that we cannot call back that wasted time and do it over again.

     Our time, every moment of every hour of every day of our lives is a direct gift from God. He allows us the choice to use that gift in whatever way we want. He produces for us a new batch of mercy and grace every morning and desires that we will follow his ways all through our days. When we come to the realization of that precious gift of time, we begin to commit our time to the Lord and His service by worshiping him and serving others. “So teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 92:12.

     “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:15-17.

     Turn to him when you face temptation. In our own selves we do not have the strength to resist temptation as we ought. We have limited vision and can't see our way out of the dilemma.

     God has already seen the end of our entire situation and He knows already what the outcome will be. He is faithful and desires that we overcome the temptation. He protects us and guides us through each situation. He loves us and proves His love for us in that way.

     “And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” I Corinthians 10:13.

     Because we have such a limited perspective on what lies ahead we get into trouble when we try to determine on our own which way we should go and what we should do. There are many places which can cause us to stumble, but if we will allow our Father God to guide us down the road of our life, He is faithful to show us a way around those dangerous and threatening places. He knows the right way for us to go.

     “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26.
