Northwood Graduate Accepts Nursing Scholarship from the American Legion Auxiliary
Mallory Twete, daughter of Brian and Diane Twete of Northwood was presented a $500 Past President’s Parley Nursing Scholarship from the Department of North Dakota American Legion Auxiliary. The presentation took place at the Parley Luncheon on June 25, 2016, in Fargo, ND, at the Department Convention. Mallory’s grandma, Judy Twete from McVille, was asked to introduce and present the scholarship to Mallory. Mallory is planning on attending Jamestown College, majoring in nursing and playing volleyball for the Jimmies.
The Past Presidents Parley is a forum that brings together the experience of auxiliary former presidents and utilizes their expertise in active service to the American Legion Auxiliary. Women who have been president of a unit, district, department, or the national organization are encouraged to contribute to the Auxiliary as members of the Past Presidents Parley. These leaders share their wisdom and provide ongoing mentorship to empower and bolster the Auxiliary’s present leaders, ensuring the continuity and strength of the organization at all levels.
The Past Presidents Parley also recognizes and honors: Women currently serving in the military and outstanding unit members who do the hard work of service within their units.
Mallory is a Life Member in Ole Semling Unit 135 in McVille, ND.
Congratulations to Mallory, we are very proud of you.

Fundraiser for Membership: this is something that we need to work on this year to get new members.
Did you know that you can now call national headquarters to pay your dues? The number to call is 317- 569-4500. They will help you especially if you have multiple members that you are paying for. I did this, and it was quick and easy to pay for my additional members.
Anyone can access www.alaforveterans.org. At the top of the site is a “join” tab. Fill out the application and pay. Every department (state) has their dues listed there. New members would become a part of ND Unit 500, and then can be transferred to their desired unit. This is a great help because, if you are talking to someone and you would like them to join, you can have them sign up right at that time. I put the website as an app on my phone and hope to use this feature many times.
The Department office is located at 1801 23rd Ave N, Rm 113, Fargo, ND 58102
