March 15, 1964 – Patron


Today, the St. Stanislaus Memorial American Legion Post No. 17771 will celebrate it’s 15th Annual Memorial Mass for the repose of the souls of our departed comrades in World Wars I, II, ‘and the Korean Conflict. They died in the service of our country – we, the living, owe them our undying gratitude.

We ask you, the public, to join with us in this solemn tribute by attending the 11 A.M. mass in St. Stanislaus Kostka R. C. Church.

As in the past, we will begin our day preceding the Mass with a parade through thit1 streets of Greenpoint. After the parade, we will have the Memorial Mass. This year the ceremonies will be concluded at our Post Grounds on Oakland Street. You too are a part of our plans – won’t you fly “Old Glory” be it large or small – won’t you join us?

Starting today, the American Legion is celebrating its 45th birthday. From the start, the American Legion had accepted the responsibility of national patriotism, working with diligence to guard and preserve our American heritage and extend its blessings. We consider ourselves fortunate belonging to an organization having the stature of the American Legion – standard bearers of National Patriotism and the American way of life. The American Legion has accepted this responsibility before, and there is no question but that we will be in the forefront again assuring our survival both as a nation and as a fountainhead of the democratic way of life.

On behalf of our Post, we would like to thank the Rev. Father Francis Hladki for permitting us to have our Memorial Mass in his Church.

In closing, I, on behalf of our Post offer up this Memorial Service for our glorious veterans who have departed from this world, knowing that our prayers have been heard today and that eternal rest has been granted those who had gone to Post Everlasting.

Stanley Lowicki, Commander
