Oceanside Honors Girls State Delegates

IMG_0123California Girls State is a leadership program of the American Legion Auxiliary designed to increase awareness and knowledge of governmental processes while learning about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship. Delegates come away with a greater appreciation of the American Flag and of the sacrifices made by our veterans. While at Girls State, they make friends with outstanding girls from around the state and have a fun week they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. California Girls State is a program sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Department of California. IMG_0129

Poppy Proclamation

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 146 was honored on April 22, 2015 at the City of Oceanside City Council meeting when Mayor Jim Woods declared May as Poppy Month in the City.  Poppy chairman Suzanne Brewer accepted the award and explained a little about the POPPY also know as the Remembrance Flower for the American Legion Auxiliary.  While you might see the Auxiliary passing out poppies to all those who would like one we DO NOT SELL them.  We do welcome DONATIONS  for our poppy with all of the money collected going in a reserve account to be used only for the Rehabilitation of our Veterans and their families.DSCN3648

Busy busy busy

Oh my , the American Legion Auxiliary  Unit 146 sure had a busy 2014.  Our Children and Youth program brought us to a third school at Camp Pendleton. We handed out Backpacks, Auxiliary  Halloween Coloring books with crayons, countdown to Christmas ribbons, handmade toys along with lots of laughs and hugs.  We have been feeding the Wounded Warriors at Camp Pendleton, adopted a military family for the year, helped sponsor many wreaths for Wreaths Across America at Miramar National  Cemetery, donated to a variety of foodbanks. We have attended local volleyball tournaments with the Oceanside Starlings and gave the opportunity for anyone who wanted to sign Christmas  Cards and Thank You cards to be sent to our veterans overseas. We have worked with Operation America cares and sent many LOVE boxes to those far from home. Unit 146 has attended the 911Flag Raising at El Camino High School along with serving and welcoming Veterans at the High School annual Veterans Day Program.  Many members volunteer at the Oceanside VA clinic and Tri City Hospital.  These are just a few things the Oceanside American Legion Auxiliary Unit 146 has been up to in 2014…..

We are always accepting new members, if you are interested in helping support our veterans and there families email me at ala146oside@gmail.com
