Prior to the regularly scheduled Post meeting on March 12 we will be having a Corn Beef and Cabbage dinner. The dinner will be from 5:30 PM until 6:30 PM.
WWII veterans from American Legion Post 234 were awarded service medals and handmade lap quilts from the Daughters of American Colonists in thanks for their service. Special thanks to Muriel Fagan, Chaplain for making the arrangements and taking time to facilitate the ceremony in each veterans' home.

The Washington Veterans Will Clinic is a nonprofit clinic that serves veterans all over Washington State. They work hard to give back to those who have served our country by providing estate planning documents (a will, advance healthcare directive, and power of attorney) at no cost to veterans across the state during the month of October.
On Saturday, October 15, 2016, the WA Vets Will Clinic will provide a clinic from 9 AM to 4 PM at the University of Washington School of Law. Each meeting will last one hour, and by the end, you will walk out with complete, printed, and notarized documents free of charge.

Suicide is the 8th leading cause of death in Washington state, and the 2nd leading cause of death amongst our youth. On Saturday, September 10, suicide prevention advocates, loss survivors, and attempt survivors will raise their voices together to bring healing and resources to this globally important issue.
In conjunction with World Suicide Prevention Day 2016, Forefront will host a free, 2-hour community training at the UW Seattle School of Social Work. This training will help you learn how to recognize when a friend, family member, or co-worker is at risk for suicide, and what you can say and do to help. This workshop is open to all.
Here in Washington state, help us build a united front for suicide prevention by bringing your family, friends, and colleagues to learn important tools for assessing and intervening with suicide risk.
The training will provide you with skills in recognizing and responding to suicide risk. There will be opportunities to ask questions, practice some skills, and gain confidence in helping others. Come be part of a worldwide effort to build awareness, break stigma, and learn tools that can help prevent suicide.
