AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY

2ND DISTRICT

 

                                                            

Congratulations to Ryan Hill, the 2015-2016 2nd District Commander and to Scott Gebel the 2015-2016 SAL Commander.

 Hi, I am Darlene Breamer, your 2015-2016 2nd District President. I am from the Minnesota Lake Unit 287. I am on the East side of the District. My theme is “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!” My symbol is a Dream catcher. I will do my best to get to all the Units that invite me to their meetings and celebrations. I am looking forward to meeting the Auxiliary members of the 2nd District. Please come to the membership rallies when they are in your area. Dates for upcoming events such as the rallies are being finalized as I write this letter. Articles and pictures for the 2nd District Newsletter need to be in by the 20th of the month.

I just got back from the 2015 Minnesota Department Convention. What a great time to meet new people and renew your friendships with other members of the American Legion Family! I encourage all members to attend the Department Fall Conference and the Department Conventions besides the District conventions. There is a lot of information available at these meetings. Our District received many certificates for your reports that were handed in.

One of the first things I am planning to do is have a leadership workshop for all unit chairman and officers. Judy Kumerow is the District Leadership chairman this year. We will be picking a date and place very soon. We would like to have more chairman and interested unit members attend this type of meeting. We need to encourage our newer and younger members to attend.

Ladies, now is the time to collecting the 2016 membership dues! We do not need to have the National dues notice slip to collect those dues. Remember that your unit must have sent in a current officer list to Department office before they will get their membership packets! The new officer list needs to be sent to me so I can get them into the 2015-2016 2nd District Directory. There are still quite a few units who have not sent me a copy. Kathy Burket, is our District Membership Chairman for this year.

Presidents please share the 2nd District Newsletter with your members. Unit members can purchase a subscription. The newsletter is now being published 12 times a year. Darlene Breamer 2nd District President
