Notes from the Department Secretary
It’s fall, and we have many, many activities coming up.
Our Fall Conference will be held on October 19, 2019 at Susitna Valley Post 35 in Wasilla. During this day there will be sharing of your program action plans as well as a DEC meeting and a Girls State Board meeting. I know that there is at least one fun game planned for the day.
In November we will celebrate Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving. Also in November, your poppies orders will be due. Finally, the American Legion Auxiliary Anniversary is November 10th.
December bring us Pearl Harbor Day, Christmas celebrations to include the Veterans Gift Shop, the Anchorage and Fairbanks Christmas Projects, and Christmas. As well, mid-year committee reports are due by December 5th to the committee chairs. It promises to be an exciting time.
With all of this going on, don’t forget to tell a veteran thank you and, in the spirit of service, not self, find a way to help a veteran and their family members during this season. Thanks to each of you for all that you do all the year long.
