Perdie Across America

Here is a letter we received from a young patriot, so I watch his trailers.  I found his work professionally done, very artistic and moving!  He has reached down to the heart of America and what the problem is, our need to live our principals and values. Check out his journey across America to spread […]

Pancake Breakfast – Oct 9 at the American Legion Lockport

I think, I’ll have a Chick-Fil-A sandwich tomorrow. (And there is a Chick-Fil-A in Orland Park, IL) See below. Chick-fil-A is an American success story. Founded by Georgian entrepreneur Truett Cathy in 1946, the family-owned chicken-sandwich chain is one of the country’s largest fast-food businesses. It employs some 50,000 workers across the country at […]
