"Farewell as We Focus on Service"
From 2017-2018 Department of Alaska President Barbe Wolkoff
We have returned from a fantastic Department Convention at Spenard Post 28. What a great Legion Family event. The entire Post worked hard together to make this convention run smoothly and be a great success.
I congratulate the newly elected officers of the ALA Department of Alaska; President Debbie Lowndes, 1st-Vice Jane Larsen, 2nd-Vice Vonn Lamm, Treasurer Diana Estrada, Secretary Barb Nath, Historian Anarene Robinson, Chaplain Marge Blankenship, Sergeant at Arms Lori Furwith and E-board members April Sinclair and Anne Foley. It was was wonderful to see all the new faces during convention. Thank you to all whom participated in my Poppy Project. I appreciate all those Units that submitted reports to their appropriate Chairman prior to the Convention. Reporting and submitting Memberships in a timely manner is so important to the ALA.
Maintaining our membership and recruiting new members is vital to the survival of this organization. Memorial Day is this month and we need to promote the Poppy, especially during this holiday. Remember, "Focus on Service" and continue to do our best to make a Veterans' life better.
God Bless you and God Bless America.
