Page 8 - Wednesday, March 5, 1980 American Legion Auxiliary William Russell Ledford Unit 293 By DENA GAMBETTA Donna Wooldridge, National Security Chairman fat" William Russell Ledford Unit 293, American Legion Auxiliary is very busy these days getting all things in readiness for the auxiliary&apos;s first Cancer Detection Clinic, in April. She has informed th.is writer that all things are coming along, and that we are hoping that everyone, especially those over 40 will take advantage of this free clinic. It is a very simple test, it is private, and a great peace of mind. On Thursday of last week several of the auxiliary ladies along with several of the gentlemen of the Lions Club went to Jefferson School where they distributed American Flags, a flag decal and a brochure on how to display and repsect the American Flag, to all second graders, namely, Barbara lnlana's class, Pat Knight's class andPolly Lile's class. It is proven that second graders are most interested, and receptive to hearing about the flag of our country, what it means, and bow to respect it. The flags are purchased jointly by the auxiliary and the Lions Club, while the decals and brochures are furnished by the United States Navy Recruiting office from Santa Rosa. This is an Americanism program, under the direction of Aria Mac Bogner chair- man, and has been an on- going program for many years, so that all students will receive an American Flag and knowledge of it, as they go through the second grade at Jefferson School. Next Saturday, March 8th, the Color Guard will lead the parade for the Status of Women's Week in Santa Rosa. The Drill team has already been asked to install in June the new officers of Theodore Roosevelt Unit 21, and also Jack London Unit 487 in Sonoma. The Juniors will be acting as honor guard for the Department President on March 23 in Vallejo. They are American Legion William Russell Lodford Post 293 By FRANK OLLENA On March 12, the second Wednesday of the month, the William Russell Ledford Post 293 will again choose its high School students to represent the Post during Boys State which is held annually at Sacramento State University. Last year the Post sent Gary Cann and Dan Holt who returned with a glowing .eport about their ex- ences. We hope to send two students who will be as enthusiastic as last year's representatives. Bob Thompson, this year's boys State Chairman will be in charge of this portion of the meeting. Bob is also the Post Finance Officer, so he will be the one who will be writing e checks to pay for the Boys State Program. It costs the Post about $400 per year for Lhis one program, but the Atnican Legion has found ,er the years that it is money well spent. This year for the first time, the quota, over 1,o00 students will be met. The Cloverdale Post had planned on sending three students, but were held to the two. Another program in which the local Post participates is the Environmental and Agricultural Seminar. Last year was the first time Post 293 sent a representative. There are only 7 slots available within the Fifth District which is made up of 30 posts. So you, can see we are very fortunate to have been alloted a slot. We hope to have a student represent Cloverdale each year. This program is for students who are interested in forestry or related fields. This program will run about $150 per student. The main item on the agenda during the next meeting will be a birthday dinner prepared by the women of the Ladies Auxiliary. The birthday will be in honor of the American Legion's 61 birthday. Post 293 has 5 active members who served in World War I. They are Walter Karr, David Ramsey, Henry Madden, Charles Harper and Fred Vadon. Comrade Vadon is the only active charter member of the Post and Ramsey was a member of the caucus which founded the American Legion in Paris, France. Ramsey is also presently serving as Post Service Officer. The birthday party will honor these also planning to install the local unit's new officers in June. The Department of California has put out a Leadership booklet, at a cost of $1.50, which tells mostly on self-development and how to lead. Dena has a copy of this booklet, and if anyone would like to borrow it, they are welcome to do so. Theresa Tollini, Veteran's Affair and Rehabilitation Chairman, is in charge of the hospital loan out equipment, and she says it is really usdd a great deal, and that at the present time the demand is greater than the supply, particularly for walkers and wheel-chairs. The auxiliary is hoping to add more to their equipment as time goes on. We are grateful to the many citizenry of the com- munity who have contributed books and magazines for the California Veterans Home at Yountville. This past week Betty Crandail, Bea Davini, and the Malstroms have brought a goodly supply of books, hard backs, magazines, and one dozen playing cards, given by the Bridge Club. We thank all of you for your generosity, and you have made many people's lives a bit cheerier by this reading material. Some one else left some neat hard backs in my garage, but did not leave their names, and to them we say a great big thank you. Don't forget the Legion's Birthday on March 12, 1980, at 6:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building. The auxiliary will furnish everything except the salads and vegetables. The auxiliary ladies, namely, Elsie Karr, Theresa Tollini, and Dena Gambetta are making two cheese cakes each to supply for the bir- thday cake. That is what the Legion requested rather than a decorated store cake. Bring your own table service, it will help the kit- chen committee. Our Citrus Fair Princess Lynne Colin will perform her act. We will have a cancer film, and many other exciting things. See you all there! : ? Bob and Valerie Hutchins at the Hungry Hutch Sandwich Shop and Deli on N. Cloverdale Blvd. say they are really proud of the sign that was painted on their window just recently by local artist Mary Ann Van Doorn. ("Hungry tlutch" name seems to have disappeared in printing of chins opened the Shop in December half years later feel like they've out to do.
