From Our Newly-elected
From 2019-2020 Department of Alaska President Jane Larson
First, I would like to give a shout out to Dorman H. Baker Unit 11, Matanuska Valley Unit 15 and C. Russell Huber Unit 57 for their generous hospitalility during my visits to their Units. I had the pleasure of seeing their great dedication to our veterans, military families, community and to our Legion family. I am looking forward to visiting more of our units to see and discuss firsthand each individual Unit's unique contribution to the American Legion Auxiliary, Department of Alaska mission.
By Presidential decree, September 11th has been designated "Patriots Day". I encourage us all to come together with our communities to remember those lives lost and the courage of the first responders, both civil and military. For hosting events, ideas can be found on the national website.
Coming up in October is our fall workshop, Saturday, October 19th. I am hoping to see a lot of you there. We have some plans for kicking off our American Legion Auxiliary's 100th anniversary. I would like to see every effort made by every member in achieving 100% membership for the Department of Alaska in 2020.
