Standing, left to right, are Kaye Woomack, Penny Martinez, Quest Holbrook, Jim Woomack and State Auxiliary President Mrs. Janet Sperry.

G. Raymond McCown, American Legion Post 24 in Garfield, now officially has an auxiliary charter rejoining the American Legion family.

The idea of re-opening a Legion Auxiliary in Garfield came up during our fall district dinner last year. Enough interest was expressed that wives, daughters, granddaughters and mothers of veterans actively pursued membership for a charter.

During the State convention, July 18-22, 2018, in Spokane, the signed and approved Auxiliary charter was presented. Those present to accept the signed charter were Quest Holbrook (Auxiliary Delegate), Kaye Woomack (Auxiliary Alternate Delegate), and representing Post 24, Jim Woomack (Delegate and Post Adjutant) and Penny Martinez (Alternate Delegate and Post Service Officer).

Members of the previous charter in Garfield are also now active with the new charter to help mentor the younger generation members in leadership and community service.

Auxiliary state delegates voted to appoint Quest Holbrook as the 7th District Auxiliary President, and Kaye Woomack as the 7th District Auxiliary Vice-President.

Currently the only other existing Auxiliary in the 7th District is Colton/Uniontown.

The Legion and Auxiliary in Garfield are now actively pursuing membership for Sons of the American Legion. This organization would include sons and grandsons of veterans.

The Auxiliary currently meets the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. The Legion meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. All meetings are at the Legion Hall located at 211 E. Main Street, Garfield.

Any veteran or family member interested in joining is invited to attend.
