Notes from the Department Secretary
Can you believe we are almost half way through the year. It promises to be a busy year.
National Convention is over and it was a huge success. There were some big changes made and these will be brought to the membership. Yvonne Lamm, our Department Membership Chair will provide that information. Our new National President is Nicole Clapp and she will be here for our Department Convention in April. Our very own Angel Schwerzfiger was election Honorary Western Division President. Congratulations Angel.
Before the end of this calendar year we have the following activities planned:
October – Halloween Activities
November 2nd – Silver Tea
November 11th – Veterans Day
November 1st – Poppy Orders due
November 28th – Thanksgiving
December 5th – Mid Year Reports Due to each Department Chair
December 7th – ALA Christmas Gift Shop
December 7th – Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
December -- Christmas and Holiday Celebrations
In addition, I am asking the following committee chairs to write a short paragraph on their committee and send it to Kelly Peterson at Legion Headquarters (email@example.com) and she will plug it into the newspaper for the appropriate month.
January – Legislative and National Security
February – Americanism
March – Community Service
April – Children and Youth
The newspaper comes out Nov/Dec, Jan/Feb, March/April, May/June and information is due the month before (usually around the 10th).
Hope you all have a marvelous holiday season.
