 At the beginning of the Feb. 11th  meeting, Chaplain Raleigh Watson offered the opening Invocation, and called for a moment of silence to honor the passing of Dorothy Herring, who passed away at the age of 81, on February 3, 2020. Dorothy was a member of A.L. Post 21 Ladies Auxiliary, and helped to prepare lunches at our chapter meetings for a long time.
