The annual District 1 School of Instruction was held on Sept. 12 at the Post 2100 hall in Everett. In the photo above above left, Edmonds Post 8870 Commander Rose Gilliland receives individual category award certificates from District Commander Otis Wolfe. These awards recognize the efforts of the members of our post over the 2019-20 VFW year.
At right, Department of Washington Commander Traci Williams, accompanied by Past Commander John Rust have just presented Commander Gilliland with the “White Hat” of an All State Post Commander, which is worn on behalf of the entire post’s efforts during her first year as commander. We were very close to making “All American Post” status last year, coming just a bit short in the new member recruitment category. Congratulations are in order to Commander Rose and the entire membership on a very successful year, under trying circumstances!
