6 I'm not afraid on Halloween Because my Mother said I should not fear those funny things But laugh at them instead. For orange faces in the night That stare with eyes so wide, Are only pumpkins on a porch With candlelight inside. And there are no such things as ghosts . Are only children just like me Wrapped up in sheets so tight. I do not fear a single thing On Halloween you see, Because I know they really are Not what they seem to be. For ghosts and goblins, witches, spooks, And other scary folks We hear about on Halloween Are really only jokes. Halloween (Cora May Preble)

is year I have the privilege of talking Protocol. We all want to do a good job and there are many questions and concerns about doing the right thing at the right time. e ALA National headquarters has provided us with many great resources available to ALL members. e below information can be found in Nationals Unit Guide Book and Department Operations Guide located at www. alaforveterans.org/members/guides/ Each article this year I will highlight some of the most common ALA protocols/customs. If there is a particular topic you would like me to cover please email me and I will be sure to address it. For God & Country, Michele Michele DeGennaro 1St Vice President What is protocol e American Legion Auxiliary, like most companies and organizations, has required procedures. ese customs for conduct at meetings, events, and ocial ALA social gatherings are based on traditions and historical practices and have become known as ALA protocols and ALA etiquette. New members and ALA guests alike are oen intimidated or feel excluded because they are not familiar with the ALAs customs for etiquette at ALA meetings and events. It is important to know that customs and protocols are not lawful requirements. Members and guests who do not abide by the ALAs many customs are not violating laws and should not be made to feel belittled or demeaned for being unaware of ALA customs. e following information is to help Districts, Units and Members understand common ALA customs and to follow customary ALA etiquette. Below are just a few of the most common ALA protocols or customs. ere may be other customary practices unique to individual Districts or Units. e following norms/customs, while not legally required or established, are longstanding practices of the American Legion Auxiliary e Emblem, Ribbons, and Pins: e emblem should always be accorded the place of honor at any meeting. It not only represents the organization; it is the organization, the American Legion Auxiliary, and acts as the signature of the organization. Use of the emblem must receive the approval of the national secretary. e wearing of cross-body ribbon sashes are longstanding customs in the organization since its founding. e sash ribbon is worn by various ocers on all levels, present and past. e sash ribbon is worn on formal occasions and never over a topcoat of any kind, but may be worn over a suit coat. e ribbon is worn over the right shoulder and under the le arm. No pins or decorations should be axed to the ribbon. It should not be knotted at the le to fasten it, but should hang crossed and secured by an invisible fastening on the underside. Members are encouraged to wear the pin of the current oce in which they are serving or have just completed, or the highest oce held by the member. It should be worn on the le side, over the heart. Some Units still continue a tradition of wearing corsages at certain events. If a corsage is being worn, it should be on the le side, above the Auxiliary pin; a cor sage is customarily considered a part of the dress once it is pinned in place. 10 Protocol Michele DeGennaro

PAGE 13

11 Members are encouraged to wear the pin of the current oce in which they are serving or have just completed, or the highest oce held by the member. It should be worn on the le side, over the heart. Some Units still continue a tradition of wearing corsages at certain events. If a corsage is being worn, it should be on the le side, above the Auxiliary pin; a cor sage is customarily considered a part of the dress once it is pinned in place. If a ag pin should be worn, it should be worn on the le side of the blouse and may be worn with the pin of the current ALA oce held by the member. e ag pin should be placed above the ALA pin(s). Escorting Guests to the Podium: When escorting a Legionnaire to the podium for the purpose of introduction, greeting, or an address, the correct procedure is for the ALA escort to take the Legionnaires le arm, with the Legionnaire on the escorts right, thus freeing the Legionnaires right hand for the purpose of saluting the colors prior to advancing on the dais. Be sure to pause before the colors to allow time for this salute. is same escorting process is to be used when escorting other guests, (ladies and gentlemen) and ALA members, with the pause to salute the colors. ere are some ALA members, who appropriately pause and place their hand over their hearts, rendering the civilian salute to the colors. Federal law allows veter ans to render the military right hand salute, even dressed as a civilian. e key factor is not how the salute is rendered, but that an appropriate salute is rendered. Salute to Colors e American Legion National Headquarters has advised the following on this matter. e Post Ocers Guide and Manual of Ceremonies asks that those Legionnaires who are entering or exiting a meeting salute the station of the Commander. An acceptable protocol for those who approach the podium is to also properly salute the colors. e national organization appreciates the demonstration of patriotism and respect given the colors by our ALA members when they have stopped and saluted. Breaking Colors or Cutting the Flags Many departments and units observe a custom that is fairly unique to the American Legion Auxiliary that deems it disrespectful to Breaking Colors or Cutting the Flags. Many ALA members expect other members to respect the colors of the ALA or Legion, that is to say, respect the posted ags at the front of a room, stage, or meeting by not walking in between the ags. While it is a custom of respect observed by many in the Legion Family to not "break/cut" between the ag and podium or another ag also posted, there is nothing in the U.S. Flag Code that addresses "Cutting the Colors" when ags are posted in the front of a room. Protocol is what to do in a given situtaion. Etiquette is how to do it and how to do it gracefully

Education 18Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I will learn, Involve me and I will remember." Greetings, First, I would like to say that I am honored and excited to be your 2017-2018 Department Education Chairman. As school began Units were busy collecting schools supplies and distributing to the schools in their area. Some Districts and Units sent me some of their activities that they did to support the Give 10 to Education collected schools supplies and distributed them to SSVF (Supportive Services for Veterans Families) supplying 36 students with school supplies, they were also able to help members from Unit 80 with school supplies and uniforms, and are continuing to collect supplies for local schools. Unit 286, Pine Castle, collected school supplies and backpacks. ey then had 15 Legion Family Members sort and stu 119 backpacks for a Back to School Party for students in VPK all the way through high school. At the party, they served food and played games with the families attending. Junior Members Jasmine and Analyssa and SAL member Jake helped run the games developed a partnership with Walmart Store#2801 in Clearwater, thanks to one of their unit members Kim Oubre who is an associate there. She is also the Units Education Chairman. Kim works closely with her Managers and Claims Associates and is always willing to accept donations that will be utilized by the Legion Family. ey were able to collect two truckloads of school supply donations, everything from binders to rulers including almost 600 pencil boxes. e distribute school supplies to 3 elementary schools in Dunedin and 1 school in another district. ey may be able to assist victims of Hurricane Irma if needed. District 16 also teamed up with e Pinellas County Council PTA and set up a Legion Family booth at their PTA Leadership Workshop, a mandatory workshop held for all K-12 School Principals and sta. ere were over 200 vendors at the workshop. All four entities of the Legion Family helped with this event. Way to go District 16!! We may want to continue to collect school supplies to help replenish schools with supplies that were lost during Hurricane Irma. I know that there are schools out there that have already mentioned the need. Our next major event for Education is American Education Week, November 13-17th, 2017. is is a time when we honor the individuals who are making schools great for every child. is week is not only dedicated to teachers but also the oce sta, custodial sta, principals, bus drivers and school board. I have listed below just a couple of ideas, but for additional ideas you can go to the National Website alafor veterans.org and NEA.org (American Education Week Activities Tool Kit.) cookies, any baked goods) for all personnel at the school, along with thank you cards) you cards for bus drivers and give them to the bus driver when they get on the bus. Juniors can also make thank you cards for teachers and other support sta. and teachers (doughnuts are always welcome.) baked goods to the local School Board. Dont forget to promote our Scholar ships. Please check for the deadlines on ala.org and alaforveterans.org Mid-year reports are due soon.

National Convention Corner Way to Go Department of FL at National Convention in Reno, Nevada!! e delegates attended their assigned Program Pre-Convention meetings and reported on the activities, awards and upcoming changes. We all attended the Constitution and Bylaws meeting with discussion on our Dues and duciary responsibilities of our Organization. Several participated in the Parade on Sunday through the streets of Reno past many famous Casinos, others cheered us on along the way enduring the heat, although not as hot as Florida Monday was Opening Session and President Mary Davis shared her nephew as Key-note Speaker about the Why you are a Member. We enjoyed our FL Party at the National Automobile Museum in Reno what an experience to stroll through the multiple warehouse-sized rooms viewing cars from long ago imagining the lifestyles of the day as well as those previously owned by James Dean, Frank Sinatra, John F. Kennedy, Elvis Presley, John Wayne and Lana Turner to name a few. Tuesday continued general session program reports and break-out sessions. I attended the ALA Foundation session with Past National President Linda Boone presiding. I learned about the (3) types of Grants (never-ending loans) that are available and the process to apply. ey have guidelines to follow, but I believe this is an avenue we can pursue for our Units and Veterans. Wednesday we wrapped early in order to attend the joint session with President Trump addressing the American Legion. We also witnessed history in the making with the signing of the Bill for Veterans Timely Appeals. Wow! What an overwhelming feeling of Proud to be an American!! at aernoon, we attended the Installation of National Ocers, where yours truly pledged to do my best as your Department President. We watched the Ceremony of Colors Presentation to Past National President Mary Davis and the presentation of Ribbon and Pin to National President Diane Duschek, a retired Science Teacher from the Department of Wisconsin. Despite some travel delays and Plan Bs around Hurricane Harvey in Texas, everyone returned home safe and sound. Please ask us to share our stories as we also took side-trips sightseeing around the area. -Treva TK Wildrick Department President

National Convention Corner Greetings from Erna Schwabe What a great National Convention with so much history! What an honor to witness the signing of the GI Bill by President Donald Trump at the podium of the 99th National Convention. It was the rst time a Veterans Service Organization had a bill signed on the oor and it was exciting that happened to our great AL Family. It was also exciting to witness the installation of our friend Denise Rohan as the rst Female National Commander of the American Legion. Congratulations to our friend Dianne Duschek for being elected as the National President of the ALA. Our ALA meetings were infor mative and well attended and our delegation seemed to enjoy what they were hearing. I had a great meeting with the 100th Anniversary Committee in which I am a part of. We are looking forward to our 100th year so if any of you have any ideas please let me know so we can present it at our next meeting! e 2017 National Convention, held in Reno, Nevada, on August 18 24th, was well planned by the 2017 National President, Ocers, committee, and sta. Kudos also goes to our Department President, Kelli Bancro, for her leadership, especially during our caucus prior to voting on amendment changes. Kelli asked for questions from our delegates and it was suggested that we judge our vote on what would be in the best interests of our Florida members, who elected us. I, as a delegate, felt that the amendment that passed, to raise a one-time National increase in dues of $3 per senior and $1.25 for juniors, was good, and needed. e defeat of the amendment for the NEC to have the authority to add incremental increases to dues represented the voice of our national members. e 2018 newly-elected National President, Diane Duscheck, planted seeds in my mind. On my return to Florida, I have accepted her challenge and will plant seeds to grow into trees to support the missions we serve for our veterans, troops, children, and community. Julia Flint Grith Delegate from Department of Florida 31

National Convention Corner I was a Page at the convention and Florida was at the front of the room, we had a great view of the guests, and it was my pleasure to escort Keli to the waiting room to receive our award, e Garlin Murphy trophy.

Flor ida party was at a car museum good food, and fun. e people of Reno were very hospitable, we even won a few dollars. I even learned more than I knew before. -Edie Porter
