In just a few days the 95th Annual Convention of the American Legion Auxiliary Department of South Dakota will kick off in Huron, SD.  We have lots of activities planned and a lot of business to take care of.  Finance and Executive meetings will be held on Friday, the convention opens on Saturday; the election of officers and any voting will take place on Sunday.  I hope that all of you are making plans to attend or at least planning to send a representative from your Unit.

This has been an incredible year, not only for me personally, but for our Department as whole!  We have had several challenges but we have faced them head on and I have had an outstanding support team.  This has not been an easy year, but it certainly has been a memorable year – and if asked to do all it all over again I would not hesitate a second!!

Not only have I learned a lot about myself but I have also built some relationships and friendship that I know will last forever.

But, the year is not over and there is still work to be done.  At the Department Convention we will be selecting delegates for the National Convention in Baltimore, Maryland August 28th through September 3rd.  Due to the lateness of our Department Convention those that are planning to attend the National Convention should plan on filling out their room reservation paperwork on Sunday of the Department Convention, this will also require you to pay for first night stay. 

This paperwork is due to the Legion Headquarters by July 3rd.

See you all in Huron!!!

In the Spirit of Good Will!!
