1st District Deceased Member Memorial

The 1st District held a deceased member memorial at Post 32 on Wednesday, May 18, 2022. Special thanks to Debbie Abraham and Linda Roman for their dedication and work to make the event successful. District Commander Dan Newton started the ceremony and directed the Post 32 Honor Guard to advance the colors. District Chaplain Thomas Catterall read the name of each deceased member to be memorialized, and Auxiliary Chaplain Helen Pardo read the names of the deceased auxiliary members. Past State Commander Dick Chatman took the podium and provided insight on the importance of remembering our departed comrades. At the conclusion of the program, the Post 32 Honor Guard fired a rifle salute and played Taps. If you haven’t attended one of these ceremonies in the past, we would encourage you to do so in the future. It is very moving.
