Female Veterans New American Legion Post Forming
Just For You
If you are a female veteran (no longer serving on
Active duty, Reserves, or National Guard) living in commuting distance
of Fort Leonard Wood and have been looking for a group who shares
your values and sense of patriotism then this new American Legion
Post is for you. You will belong to the largest veterans service
organization in the world but more importantly you will share in
the benefits of forming an American Legion Post dedicated to the
welfare and support of all female veterans in the Fort Leonard Wood
area. Within the State of Missouri there are thousands of female
veterans in addition to those still serving-we need to stand side
by side to help one another.
All women American Legion posts already exist in St. Louis, Kansas
City, and Columbia. These female Legionnaires come together each
month to further the principles of the American Legion-Americanism,
Veterans, Children & Youth, and National Security. They are
women veterans helping women veterans.

Joy of Caring
Colton's Steakhouse has teamed up with the Joy of Caring Cancer
fund and is selling shirts for $15.00. 100% of the profit will be
donated to the Phelps Regional Foundation to help with families
of the surrounding counties dealing with this illness.
Joy of Caring Cancer Fund was started by Renee Joy Heaven. Joy
learned she had breast cancer in May of 1992, the month that her
husband lost his job of 21 years due to a plant closing. In addition
to losing his job, the family also lost their health benefits. Joy
and her family were consumed with worry and stress about how to
pay the medical, household and family expenses. Joy realized that
other cancer patients must experience the same worries and stress,
and she was inspired to find a way to help others like her.
Joy's vision of having resources available for cancer patients
became a reality when she was hired by the PCRMC Bond Clinic as
their first Cancer Care Coordinator in 1995. Through the Bond Clinic's
support, Joy started the Joy of Caring Cancer Fund in 1995 to support
local Cancer patients.
Sadly, Joy lost her battle with cancer in 1996, but her mission
of caring lives on in all the cancer patients who still benefit
from her hard work, dedication and compassion. Joy once said, "Along
with my family, the Joy of Caring Fund is an accomplishment I'm
most proud of."

According to a new survey conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf
of Curves, nearly seven in ten (67%) women responded they do not
feel they have enough "me time" in a given week for their
personal interests and hobbies. Fitness and wellness activities

typical gym workouts are too time-consuming. Fortunately, Curves
offers an efficient, effective 30-minute option that allows women
to work out - with friends- and still have extra "me time"
for other hobbies and interests.

to work out for free on the Curves circuit, including experiencing
Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels, which are full body workouts
that change each month. Those who join that day will receive 30
days free on their membership. In addition, participating Curves
locations will offer free health assessments, healthy snacks and
other raffles and giveaways in celebration of the Open House.
"As women look for efficiencies amidst busy fall schedules
and aim to maximize their 'me time,' a 30 minute Curves workout
is the perfect option," said Mike Raymond, chief marketing
officer at Curves International, Inc. "The circuit affords
women a great full-body workout while still leaving time for other
personal interests. We encourage prospective members to come and
check us out this month, to see what's new and different at Curves."
Curves is "all new" with many new offerings including,
the addition of Curves Workouts with Jillian Michaels, new lifestyle
apparel, protein bars and dessert bars as well as new state-of-the-art
