Fred Hancock Auxiliary Unit No. 19
The Fred Hancock Auxiliary Unit #19 is looking forward to a great fall season!
Many thanks to our 2017-2018 Officers for their support of Unit #19’s progress: Erika Tiede, Vice President, Linda Cook, Secretary, Esther Maas, Treasurer, Rhonda Jarvis, Historian, Elva Schulz, Chaplain, and Evelyn Lundstrom-Weiss, Sergeant at Arms.
We are pleased announce that Doris Werth and Pacita (Tess) Martin have joined our Unit to help us serve veterans and their families.
In June and July we participated in the following events: Erika Tiede, Evelyn Lundstrom-Weiss and I provided support for Café Vets; Elva Schulz represented our Unit at the ALA Department Convention in Kennewick; Linda Cook and I participated in the Renton River Days Parade by riding on the Post’s truck float (thank you Linda for decorating it!!) and also helped staff the Post’s Renton River Days Booth.
In August, we attended planning meetings for both the Post and District.
We are very excited to sponsor a HOLIDAY BAZAAR fundraiser at Post #19 on Friday and Saturday, October 20 and 21 from 9 am to 5 pm. Members of the community are invited to set up “rented” tables to sell holiday handicrafts which will help the Auxiliary to promote its programs and network with the Renton community. Please contact us if you would like to “rent” a table for a nominal fee or donate items for this holiday-themed event. All are welcome! For more information please call Diana Hagen, 425-271-3881.
Membership notices will be coming soon. We look forward to working together – “to participate in and contribute to the accomplishment of the aims and purposes of The American Legion.”
Sincerely, Diana Hagen
Auxiliary Unit #19 President
