At the beginning of our Christmas Party, we recognized our top three Voice of Democracy winners and our First Place Patriot’s Pen winner.  Our Voice of Democracy Winner and our Patriot’s Pen Winner also won at the District level and are now competing at the State level.  Our Commander, Paul Hamburger, and Auxiliary President, Beth Laderer, presented the Post awards and Terry Sauls, District 9 Commander, and Wanda Farbe, District 9 Auxiliary President & State Conductress, presented the District awards.

 

Bernadette Rose Saizan is our Post & District Voice of Democracy (VOD) winner and is a Senior at Fontainebleau High School.

Diane C. Vaught, a 6th grade student at Mandeville Middle School, is our Post & District Patriot’s Pen winner

 

Also recognized were Sean Noel, a Freshman at St Paul’s School, who won 2nd place in the VOD contest and Seth Walters, a Junior at Northlake Christian School, who won 3rd place in the VOD contest.  Seth was unable to attend due to illness but his parents accepted his award.

 

We enjoyed listening to each of the winners as they read their essays.  The Theme for the VOD contest was “My Responsibility to America” and the Patriot’s Pen Essay theme was “The America I Believe In
