VFW Post 8720 held it's Installation of Officers and Awards Ceremony on Saturday, May 19, 2012

 

Our Young American Creative Patriotic Art Award winner, Megan, graduating senior from Fontainebleau High School, was recognized and presented her award by Auxiliary outgoing President Carol Johansen.

 

Commander Mike Peats presented Appreciation Certificates to Auxiliary members Betty Cognevich & Carol Palermo (They also received gift cards for their faithful cooking of our meeting meals.)

 

David Rice, Rudy Sutis, Franklin Lanzetta and Mark Young received Appreciation Certificates for their assistance in our Community Programs & Post Improvement Projects.

 

This year marks the 60th anniversary of our Auxiliary. The Auxiliary sent out special invitations to all their members inviting them to the Awards ceremony to receive a Membership Pin based on the years of service with the Auxiliary. Many were not able to attend. But 17 members with 5 or more years of service were presented with their membership pins. We are delivering the pins to those that were unable to attend.

 

We were especially pleased that our two living Charter Members were able to attend, Madeline Willoughby and Gerry Dirmann.

 

The Ladies Auxiliary presented the outgoing President Carol Johansen with a dozen yellow roses in appreciation for her service as President.
