You may use them as ornaments – or if you would like to attach the star or circle or oval on your Auxiliary bags and would like a key ring to do so, just put the number of key rings you need.
Thank you for your orders. This is very exciting as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the American Legion Auxiliary.
The theme for the 100th Anniversary is "An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow."
The American Legion Auxiliary turns 100 on November 10 2019. Do you have your party planned?
In the Centennial Media Tool Kit from National, which you can find on our Department website or I can email you a copy, has "where to start," "sample media advisory," "sample press release," "sample proclamation" for your city/town, and other great information. It has wonderful ideas for celebrations such as a community open house, proclamation for American Legion Auxiliary Centennial Day, centennial picnics, dinners, floats in parades, booths at events, centennial garden, and other wonderful ideas.
We strongly encourage each Unit, District and Division to have a centennial committee to plan how their Unit, District and Division will celebrate.
Please join the American Legion Auxiliary 100th Anniversary Celebration Facebook group at www.Facebook.com/groups/ALAcentennial. This is a place where members-only can gather ideas on how to observe and celebrate.
We have 100th Anniversary ornaments which are for sale. We have been told they are much prettier in person than the picture, so Angie made a video showing the ornaments. You can find that on our web page. President Sue has graciously agreed to take them with her on her Fall Forums.
We will be putting together a questionnaire for each Unit to complete. This will be sent out in the October packet to the Unit Presidents. It will be a form which can be completed online as well -- thanks to our AA -- Amazing Angie!!! It will gather information about the Units with their history over the last 100 years.
It is the hope to have a celebration at the 2020 Department Convention as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the world's largest patriotic service organization!
We will be awarding the following personal awards:
A personal award to the Unit for the most unique way to celebrate the 100th Anniversary.
A personal award to the District for the most unique way to celebrate the 100th Anniversary.
A personal award to the Unit and District for the best report on their historical information.
A personal award to the District for the best narrative report on their historical information.
