President Jeannine's  March Blog

We just finished Midwinter Conference in Spearfish.  Thank You District 1 for planning the Conference.  Of course, the weather was an issue, but we do live in South Dakota.  The Program Fair was great, I hope that good information goes back to the Units.  The Silent Auction brought in $429.00, which will go towards my Presidents Project.  Mary Jo’s Children and Youth pillow case project went over well with tons of clothes donated to fill up the pillow cases.    The Ladies Night out was GREAT!!  We were bused to the Lodge, had a FREE supper, had drinks FREE and finally the Slot Tournament and a chance to win FREE money what more could you ask for.  

Remember to nominate a Unit Member from your Unit and send it to your District President by March 1st. Also, Poems and Essays need to be sent to the Americanism Chairman Patsy Madsen.  All the information will be coming out in the next mailing from Department Headquarters.  Remember the American Legions Birthday March 15th.  Show the Legion we appreciate what they do.

 District Meetings will begin in March:

March 16, District 1, Spearfish

March 17, District 2 , Crazy Horse

March 22, District 6, Wessington Springs

March 23, District 7, Canton

March 24, District 8, Yankton

March 29, District 4, Leola

March 30, District 5, Clark

March 31, District 3 Winner

If you are unable to make your own District Meeting, find a District you can go to.
