FEATURED NEWS

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.

September 18, 2020 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. In tribute to those who have yet to return home from their call to duty, Bend Heroes Foundation has worked successful with the Oregon legislature for several months to designate Oregon’s US Highway 26 as POW/MIA Memorial Highway. Highway 26 runs across Oregon from Seaside to Nyssa. US Highway 16 actually reaches from the west coast to the east coast in America. Oregon will be the first state to designate its stretch of Highway 26 as POW/MIA Memorial Highway. While some states have undertaken the same initiative, it is hopefully all states will make Highway 26 a coast-to-coast POW/MIA Highway.
 
On September 18 there will be several dedication ceremonies across Highway 26 in Oregon.
