The luncheon was a big success! Thanks to the great efforts of Michelle Lee and Alan Scharlach in putting on the event. Thank you also to those members who attended and help put the program on.
This year all of our delegates held offices, notably our Girls State ambassador from Dougherty Valley High was elected Governor!
Ken Mintz, SRV Unified School District, commented afterwards that he was glad he came to the event and was very impressed with the program and students.

DISTRICT 9 BBQ AT VA CLINIC MARTINEZ
District 9, including Post 246, hosted its annual BBQ for the Martinez VA Clinic in-patients and staff on Sunday, 8 Oct.

Special thanks go out to our members Mark Heinemann, Bob Sada, Henry Miguel, Randy and Carol Reid, and Eric and Mary Ardell who help bring a little joy to these in-patient veterans. Check out the event pictures on our website.
