Unit All Stars during the COVID Pandemic:
We want to recognize ALL members who are making a difference and toot their horn. We all should take note and thank some Junior ALA members of Unit #21 McMinnville. Wearing face masks has been a requirement for essential workers and now the requirement is statewide for everyone. Ask any person having to wear a face mask for extended periods and most will tell you, it rubs my ears raw. Answering the call are the Juniors of Unit #21 McMinnville, working toward their Junior Auxiliary Service Project. Sisters Lilly, Harley and Delaney Riha along with senior helpers (Becky Berweger, Glena Smith, Jeanne Clayton and Debra Godwin) have produced more than 1,200 ear protector straps and delivered 300 to nurses at Willamette Valley Medical Center. The Legion Riders will deliver ear protectors to medical professionals and residents in the Lebanon and The Dalles Veterans Home. They added a special touch for veterans, heart shaped buttons that say,“Made with Love”. How awesome is that!
Official Call to the Fall Department Executive Committee (DEC) held October 3rd-4th in Lebanon, Oregon has been sent out via e-mail.
