Our Official Visit to District#20. Part 1.
Friday we were welcomed at Tobyhanna Post#509, home Post of District#20 President Guyette.
We met a 92 year old Charter member, Ms Esther, while having a wonderful meal. Homemade chicken pot pie or beef stroganoff with Homemade warm apple dump cake for dessert. Bonnie and husband Wally, man the kitchen and do an amazing job! We were presented beautiful mums for our gardens.
Commander Ronnie and President Bonnie are very active in the Post. We participated in their fundraising by having our eagles soar around their Post.

I was able to spend another Amazing Day with the VALOR Clinic Foundation Volunteers at a Stand Down that is done every other month in Wilkes-Barre. There were 6 Veterans assisted an 42 within the community. β€πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²
We delivered some non-perishable food for their pantry, for no one should go hungry!
We also dropped off some insulated lunchboxes and pencil cases with pencils for our kids that are returning to school.
Thank you VALOR Clinic Foundation for all you do for our Veterans and their communities!

I absolutely love spending time with all of you!

Official Visit to District #14 is our first on the list. District meeting was at Post#6824, which is the Home Post of our District President, Anne Eastabrook.
It was a great visit with my Home District!
Anne runs a great meeting and her School of Instruction was about our newest program, Auxiliary Community Outreach.
Anne gave me the honor of swearing in the incoming Officers of the District.
Thank you very much for all you do!
Anne presented me with a Love gift of a Buddy Poppy Bag and scarf.
We received 2 checks for my special project, VALOR CLINIC FOUNDATION ❀
While in District #14, the Steering Committee gave me a little send off with a skit.
I received a giant card which had about 3 packages of confetti. I also received a new mini suitcase and phone which plays music and is rechargeable. We have our pinwheel in the car and ready to give assistance wherever we are needed!
Thank you for a wonderful day β€πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²
