AMERICANISM/PATRIOTIC INSTRUCTOR
LOUZINDA RANDOLPH AUGUST 2015

AS WE ARE ALL AMBASSADORS IN BOTH AMERICANISM AND PATRIOTIC INSTRUCTORS IN OUR AUXILIARIES, WE ARE TO WORK WITH EACH OTHER TO GET THE JOB DONE.

THE PATRIOTIC INSTRUCTOR IS TO ENCOURAGE MEMBERS IN THE PROPER WAY TO SALUTE THE U.S.FLAG. ALSO YOU SHOULD GIVE A PORTION OF THE BYLAWS AT EACH MEETING, TO HELP INFORM NEW MEMBERS.

THE AMERICIANISM PROGRAM ALLOWS YOU TO BE A PROUD AMERICIAN. IT SHOWS OTHERS THE LOVE AND SUPPORT WE GIVE TO OUR SERVICEMEN IN THE DEFENSE OF OUR COUNTRY.

AMERICANISM PROJECTS THAT YOUR AUXILIARY CAN DO:

1. HAVE A PARADE OR IF YOUR COMMUNITY HAS ONE, CHECK TO SEE IF YOU CAN JOIN. THEY ALWAYS LIKE TO HAVE THE VETERANS PARTICIPATE.

2. THIS YEAR THEY WANT US TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE POW/MIA. SEE IF YOU HAVE A GROUP IN YOUR AREA . IF NOT, HAVE A PROGRAM AND LIST IT IN THE PAPER. THE DATE FOR THAT RECOGNITION DAY IS THE THIRD FRIDAY IN SEPTEMBER. CHECK TO SEE IF THE POW/MIA FLAG IS FLOWN OVER FEDERAL FACILITIES, CEMETERIES, POST OFFICES AND MILITARY INSTALLATIONS.
YOU CAN FIND A SAMPLE OF THE CEREMONY WORDING AND TABLE SET UP AT THE LADIES AUXILIARY WEBSITE.

3. GET INVOLVED IN THE TEACHER OF THE YEAR SOON AS SCHOOL STARTS, AS THE DEADLINE IS THE SAME TIME AS THE VOD.

LETS GET OUT AND GET GOING SO WE CAN BE A 100% IN REPORTING FOR THIS YEAR.
