I am so honored to be the 2015-2016 South Dakota American 

Legion Auxiliary.  

My theme is “Joining Together for Our Veterans”. My pin is four 

puzzle pieces joined together to represent the Auxiliary, 

Legion, SAL’s, and Riders.  In the center is an eagle 

representing our veterans. 

My flower is the Peace Rose in honor of my grandfather, father, 

and husband, all veterans. 

My colors are red and gold, colors of the beautiful South 

Dakota sunsets.

My songs are “On Eagles Wings”, “Fallen Heroes” by Kevin H 

and America.

I would like to invite all members to my homecoming August 1, 

2015 and the American Legion Post 71.  It will begin with a 

parade at 1:30, social at 2:00.  The program will start at 3:00 

with a meal at 4:00.  I hope many of you will be able to make it.  

I will work hard to serve the organization.  Please contact me 

with any questions. 

Serving Others, Not Self

What a wonderful time we had out the Commander and my Homecoming.  It was so wonderful to see so many Auxiliary friends.  Now we are off and running for the coming year.  Chairmen are busy working on their plans of actions and these should all be posted by the middle of September.  I will be posting a highlights from National Convention when we return.  Please check the link to find out where and when the Fall Conferences will be held.  Please plan on attending and encourage others to attend..  This is how we stay informed and keep members excited and motivated. 

In the spirit of good will,
