The Official Newsletter of the
Shenandoah Valley Chapter #313
Korean War Veterans Association
Lewis M. Ewing, Editor
September 2016

    At our August meeting, our Fund Raising Committee Chairman, Dick Boxwell, reported that the last fundraiser for this year will be on Friday, September 23rd and Saturday September 24th at the Walmart store located on route 50 west of Winchester. He also passed around the sign-up sheets for this event and stressed the importance for all able bodied members to sign up to work one of the two-hour time slots and, most importantly, to show up to work on time. Members who sign up and then do not show up create serious problems for Dick that he does not need.

    Keep in mind that the money we collect at these fund raisers supports the overhead costs associated with the day-to-day operation of our Chapter. Please do your part to maintain our position as the best Chapter in the KWVA.

Ed Ellis receiving his certificate from Steve Culbert


    At our August meeting our 1st Vice-Commander, Steve Culbert, presented a certificate of appreciation to James "Ed" Ellis to thank him for his many contributions to our Chapter, especially his commitment to keep the area surrounding our Korean War Memorial in the Jim Barnett Park mowed, trimmed and free of debris. Thanks Ed for a great job.We do appreciate what you do!


  Donald and Hillary go into a bakery on the campaign trail and as soon as they enter the bakery, Hillary steals three pastries and puts them in her pocket. She says to Donald, "See how clever I am? The owner didn't see anything and I don't even need to lie. I will definitely win the Election".

    The Donald says to Hillary, "That's the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life - trickery and deceit. I am going to show you an honest way to get the same result" Donald goes to the owner of the bakery and says, " Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick".

    Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives him a pastry. Trump swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives him another one. Then Donald asks for a third pastry and eats that one too. The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, "What did you do with the pastries?"

    Trump replies, "Look in Hillary's pocket."
