In just a few days National President Janet Jefford will be in South Dakota!!  There is still time to make plans to join us in Deadwood, Sturgis, Piedmont, Box Elder, Rapid City or Hot Springs!!!  WOW, what a schedule we have planned.  The complete schedule is posted here on the website so check it out; if you have any questions contact Helen Riedlinger, the tour coordinator, or myself. 

There is so much going on in the weeks to come – District meetings start on March 28, you have only a few days left to get your nominations for LEGIONETTE OF THE YEAR to your District President, so make it happen!!  We all have outstanding members in our Units, just take the time to recognize them. 

Don’t forget elections will be taking place in District 1, 3, 5 & 7 – those District President’s that are elected this year will automatically become Delegates for the National Convention in Baltimore in August.

 Girl State Registrations are due April 1 – if you have not made those visits to the schools than “get r done!”  We have some outstanding young woman, if they have not applied and you think they would be a candidate then CALL THEM!!  Better yet call their parents!  So many parents are unaware of this opportunity for their children.

Start working on your year end reports – the deadline is fast approaching.

In the Spirit of Good Will!!
