A visit from the Ladies Auxiliary National President.

It was such an honor to welcome the Ladies Auxiliary National President Ann Panteleakos to Oregon City and our Post 1324.   Below is a picture (L-R) of our President Tracy Bogart, our District President Patricia Carroll, our State President Linda Rose, and the Ladies Auxiliary National President Ann Panteleakos. 
Here is our President Tracy Bogart, Ladies Auxiliary National President Ann Panteleakos and our Post Commander DJ Ruger.  

This is how we set up the post for the wonderful spaghetti dinner that we served. 
This is only half of our post. 

 everyone loved the decorations and the food.
 The lady standing in this picture is Jan Halverson, our Ladies Auxiliary State Secretary. 
We had Ladies Auxiliary members from Canby, Molalla, Salem, Sandy and Redmond OR. We also had a few Post members, Jim McDonald, Tracy Bogart, Ann Panteleakos, DJ Ruger, Maurie and in the back is Tom. I have to apologize because I don't know Maurie's or Tom's Last names or Post positions.  They are all great guys and fun to work with.  So glad they came today.
Ann Spoke today about recruiting new members and how important that we rebuild our membership.  We lost 40,000 members nation wide this last year.  If you or a member of your Family are Veterans of Foreign Wars, meaning you/they went over seas, you could be eligible to join the Ladies Auxiliary and help our Veterans even more.  With so many of our family members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan we have big shoes to fill.  We need all the help we can get.  

We just learned of some local families who's spouse's have been deployed recently are in need of help any one can help and if you can spare a few cans of food or really just about anything that would help a lot.  You can contact me 503-708-6889 or you can stop by the post on Thursday evenings from 6-8 pm or you can call the VFW Post 1324 503-655-6969 and arrange a time to drop items off.

We had so many wonderful Volunteers that helped us today.  

Thank you all so very much.

Now, I have some scrapbooking to do. 

Happy Scrappin',
