Post 20 in Greenwood were most
gracious hosts and hostesses for
the Fall Northern Area Conference.
Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!
The Northern Area Conference was held Oct. 29
at Post 29 in Greenwood. We had a wonderful
gathering of Legion, Auxiliary and SAL members
on a gorgeous fall day. The air was cool and crisp,
and the sun was shining bright.
Post 29, led by a hostess committee of Unit 29
President Carolyn Randle and members of the Unit,
welcomed visiting members. Everyone was able to
purchase raffle tickets for items, with all monies
designated for the Support Fund. Dept. President Glenda Wheelis made a
delicious Italian Creme Cake which she personally sold chances for...again, all
for the support fund. All in all, $220 was raised.
As a special treat, we were treated to entertainment by Ray Mattox and Kenny
A joint opening began at noon. Post 29 Commander John Favara gave the
welcome. Northern Area Commander Don Cabrol introduced the Legion
Officers and 3rd District President Inez McCain introduced the Auxiliary Officers.
After the blessing of the food by Dept. Chaplain Angela Kilcrease, the attendees
were treated to a wonderful lunch, catered by Steven's Bar-B-Q.
The Auxiliary left the Post and went to the Chamber of Commerce to conduct its
business. Inez McCain called the meeting to order and a welcome was given
before turning over the meeting to Dept. President Glenda Wheelis. The
Program Chairmen present were given the opportunity to explain the Plans of
Work for their program.
Door prizes were given and all were dismissed. The next stop on the Area
Conference train will be at Southern on November 5 in Hattiesburg.
