National President Ann Panteleakas made her official visit to Missouri on Nov. 16-18. Dept. officers and members of the Ladies Auxiliary from all over the state of Missouri converged in Springfield to welcome her. Commander Chris Bell and his wife Linda joined in on the event and traveled with the ladies from dinner at Hemingway’s (Bass Pro Shop) to the Springfield VFW Post 3404 and Ozark VFW Post 7628. The ladies traveled on to Branson where they visited the College of the Ozarks and the show and dinner at Dixie Stampede. National President Ann said she wanted to come back to Branson because she wanted to visit Dick’s 5 and 10 store that all the ladies talked about. Great visit!
