Shaping a positive future for our veterans, our military and their families.

Notes from the Department Secretary

From the Secretary's Desk
By Barb Nath, 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 ( 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.
