The start of 15th District visit found the 3 Amigos at Post 138 Tampa on Sunday March 18th. We enjoyed a grand Breakfast and met with President Kathy and several members. I also had the special opportunity to pin 2 young Jr members. Next, we were escorted to Post 139 Tampa where we were greeted by several members and we heard lots of stories of the great events and successes they had. My visit was strictly timed as I had an invitation to Gold Star Tea hosted by Unit 5 Tampa. What a fantastic turn-out of members from both District 15 as well as District 16. Upon arrival, the selection of a beautiful tea cup and saucer was the rst order of business. The bu et of nger sandwiches and delicious desserts was bountiful. There were many Gold Star mothers as distinguished guests, most of whom were members of the American Legion Auxiliary. Each Mother shared their heartfelt stories of their fallen heroes mostly happy and proud memories but many of us would be seen with tissues shedding tears for their losses I had an opportunity to address these wonderful ladies and thanked them for their courage and perseverance. Monday we all met at Post 148 Riverview for Breakfast, cooked to order by the SAL, home for District President Georgia McKenzie. Again, we enjoyed our visit with the members in attendance and hearing the activities they have accomplished. From there, we went on to Post 26 Plant City and visited with President Pam and Secretary Diane. They told us the history behind the Post namesake, Norman McLeod and the story behind the corner display honoring the Fire Wagon History of the American Flags. We visited in the refurbished Auxiliary room and reminisced the previous years memorabilia and activities. We ended our visit with co ee and most delicious strawberry shortcake of course I tried both types of strawberry toppings PS: Thank You for the surprise gift a jar of homemade Strawberry Preserves. I have been thoroughly enjoying my breakfast Bagels while camping these past few weeks!!! Tuesday found us at Post 5 Tampa with Unit President Rosemary Hamlin organizing a lovely breakfast bu et. I toured the Post and visited with Patty Delgado along with several other members. I was presented a handcrafted wreath out of doggy-printed cloth and (2) paperweights hand-painted rocks: one with ALA Logo and the other with logo of K-9s for Warriors. Beautiful! The Legionnaires and SAL entourage went on to visit Post 111. I stayed awhile longer as Unit 111 President Connie was already in attendance. All the Auxiliary members gathered around the table and shared further stories about their activities and events supporting Auxiliary programs and our protocols. Then, President Mary from Unit 248 West Tampa escorted me to her Post where the Bingo ladies were enjoying the afternoon. The Unit is small but mighty they collect donations for a food pantry and supplies for the local school. Among the several items on display was a Certi cate of Appreciation presented from James Haley VA Hospital to Mary McColgan recognizing her tireless e orts in Honor of Social Work Month March 2018. Congratulations!! The day ended with dinner at Post 334 North Tampa. This Post hosts a Flea Market every weekend with vendors tents along the perimeter. Thank You ladies for the delicious dinner and for ALL your e orts supporting our President s Message TREVA KAY WILDRICKContinued on Page 4

THE AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY, DEPARTMENT OF FLORIDAveterans. I enjoyed the 2nd price of carrot cake as my mid-night snack Wednesday, we traveled to Town and Country Post 152 Tampa, home of PDP Mary Kelly Perkins. After co ee and doughnuts, The 3 Amigos addressed the members speaking of membership, programs, history, charities and the Legion Family. Thank You Mary for your hospitality!! Our next stop was Post 147 Gunn Hwy Memorial. We were met by several Legion and Auxiliary members and enjoyed a lovely lunch, with plenty of homemade desserts and ice cream! The ladies are very busy making BEAUTIFUL lap robes from the yarn donated by other Unit members. They are also very busy making plarn (yarn from plastic bags) and crocheting mats for our homeless veterans. I helped with the next batch by delivering the huge bag of collected yarn and prepared/ cut plastic strips. Great job ladies and thank you for your valuable time and creativity! That evening Bernie and I went to Post 148 for some relaxation. I joined the weekly BINGO and Bernie visited with the Sons. My ticket was drawn as the Queen for the evening and as luck would have it, G58 was a popular number drawn throughout the evening. Just so you know, every $1 won was eventually returned/played for the next game. What great fun our table had and much laughter was shared!! On Thursday we ventured to Brooksville, Post 99. What a beautiful old building! Although there is not an Auxiliary currently, the Post Adjutant is very excited about the possibility in the very near future! From there, the Legion Family entourage went to Post 186 Spring Hill for lunch. Again, Mary and the members outdid themselves with the feast provided. I had an opportunity to visit with all the members ful lling my social butter y duties as Bernie says. Friday, the Legion Family entourage gathered at James A Haley VA Hospital meeting up with our representative, Ann Sankowski. We had a tour of the facility including the CLC, Hospice and Swim/Pool Therapy. As we were ending our tour, our guide explained the new technology in the poly-prosthetics eld. Just then, advancing down the hall were 2 therapists and a US Marine adorned with his new legs, learning to use the mechanics. It was such a thrill to see him, although I am sure it was a challenge for him; draining his strength. When we got closer, a vibrant round of applause was given and we asked his permission for photos while he gladly shared his story. Later that afternoon, we went to the Veterans Memorial Park and for a guided tour of each tribute. We ended our District visit with an infamous SAL Fish Fry dinner at Riverview Post 148. What a great crowd!! There were many Auxiliary and Sons members enjoying great food and comradery. The Unit presented me a gift a beautiful wooden kaleidoscope in the shape of an egg. Then they overwhelmed me with a check to K-9s for Warriors in the amount of $1000! I simply burst into happy tears. Bernie and I stayed and enjoyed the entertainment by dancing the night away. Thank You District 15 Domestic Doves for such a wonderful visit and sharing your time and kindness!! Saturday, the Madam President Vehicle was seen leaving the campground at 4am traveling to Jacksonville, Unit 88 for the 5th District ABC School. There were over 40 members in attendance, 7 were newbies!! It was an honor to be their Instructor. After introductions all around, we began. By the time we broke for lunch, we had everyone participating with the questions and answers. A quick end of session survey showed both the newbies and seasoned members learned much and would bring a friend the next time. Unit 88 presented me with a check for K-9s for Warriors. Afterwards, I was driving south I-95 to Titusville Post 1 for the Eastern Area Ball. Bernie had already set-up the camper and our furbabies were making friends at every chance available. After a quick change to Western attire we were o to the ball. There were several Department Chairmen and O cers in attendance, along with PDPs Peggy Hearlson, Erna Schwabe, Diane Rousseau and Pat Donohue. The food was terri c, the entertainment lively and everyone had a great time! We had a great breakfast at the Post and then headed back to Fern Park. District 17 visits started on Wednesday, March 28th. Meeting President Toni Ellsworth at Post 267 Ormond Beach, we traveled to Palatka, Post 45 for lunch. President Donna, Kaye and other members were busy making plarn for the mats for veterans. Along with Diane and Pat, we discussed other activities the Unit has accomplished and their ideas for fundraising. They gave me a copy of the Legion Family Newsletter, The 45 Informer. It is lled with upcoming events to promote the Legion within the community great job!! Next we visited South Daytona, Unit 361. President Linda and her members provided a delightful Pig Bu et and the Pig-themed centerpieces on the tables were adorable. There were members from Unit 17 New Smyrna Beach and they had designed the cutest T-Shirt for District Membership. Bernie was visiting with other members in the Social Club and it is certainly a small world. There were his 2nd cousins from the Syracuse area and did they share some childhood stories! As we gathered for photos, President Toni presented gifts: Harley Angel Wings earrings and pendant set and a beautiful R/W/B crystal Heart Pendant from the District. Then, Unit 361 presented a $1000 check for K-9s for Warriors. Thank You for your hard work and generosity! PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Continued from Page 3 Continued on Page 5

I met the founder, Gloria and she de nitely runs a very organized operation. After setting up the tables with bakery items, fruit and produce, pounds of potatoes, loaves of bread, boxes of hams and grocery bags over- lled with other canned-goods, boxed cereals and other miscellaneous items we were ready to provide carry-assistance for the 200+ families. The local paper and news crews were there interviewing families and taking general photos of the food-line. Many have been coming for several years and are very grateful for the assistance. We hated to leave; however, our scheduled appointment to the PRRC was coming up fast. This is a VA Wellness Center in Port Orange. It was the Alumni & Grads GetTogether an open forum of how the program succeeds and family members added as well. Our guide, Anne Barriero, Recreation Therapy, stated some of these Veterans are submitting their Art and Music at an upcoming Festival at the local Museum. The program teaches our Veterans to do laundry, cook meals, dress appropriately for work / job interviews, etc. And from the stories shared, I believe the program is very successful! We went back to Post 267 Ormond Beach for Taco Lunch. Then we were o to Emory Bennett Daytona Beach and met Erna Schwabe. We had a great tour with Donna and met several veterans along the way.

THE AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY, DEPARTMENT OF FLORIDA Historian ELEANOR AMATOHISTORIAN ELEANOR AMATO VISITS AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY USS TAMPA UNIT 5 During my recent visit to the American Legion USS Tampa Post 5 for the rededication and anniversary of the sinking of their name sake US Coast Guard Cutter Tampa, I had the privilege of a tour of the home for the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 5. I was taken back by the wall of honor of every president since the beginning of Unit 5 in 1921. Pictured above is President O. N. Bie (1921-1922) and on the right a sample of the Wall of Honor. President Bie led the charge to purchase the adjacent 2 acres of land in 1920. According to legion lore she couldnt stomach the notion of a homeless WWI veteran being buried in a paupers grave. At the time, the cemetery was on the outskirts of town, but now it is near one of Tampas busiest intersections. The bone white tombstones march toward a line of oaks. This is sacred ground and is protected. Care of the cemetery falls to the American Legion Cemetery Corp. founded in the 70s. This truly is a site to see. Thank you Rosemary Hamblin for the great tour. All units have a great history, contacted me with your information. Remember, I am here for you, Eleanor Amato, Department of Florida Historian.
