President, Auxiliary Unit 43

At mid-year convention for ALA, Unit 43 was awarded two certificates of achievement for meeting membership goals! These were due in large part to the efforts of our First Vice President and Membership Chair, Carol Scott. Unit 43 thanks to Carol for her hard work in reaching these goals.

Unit 43 has many dedicated members. One quiet, gentle member is always there, always supporting the Legion, the Auxiliary and the Sons. Unit 43 is grateful for the neverending service, thoughtful guidance and hard work of Delia Hernandez. She is a familiar face, present at meetings and at special events. Delia's husband, Arturo, is a member of the Legion and her son, Luis, is a member of the Sons. They bring the true meaning of family to Post 43. Thank you, Delia!
