     PAST DEPT. PRESIDENT: SARAH ELAM

     

    Sarah L. Elam has been outstandingly active in Unit 190, District and Department American Legion Auxiliaries.  With the Unit, she has been secretary, president, chaplain and historian.  During Legion year 1979-80, she was vice president of the 2nd District Auxiliary, and president1980-81.  She went on to become vice president of the Department Eastern Zone Auxiliary.  And , in 1988, she elected president of the Department Auxiliary for the 1988-89 Legion year.  Thereby, she became the first Black woman up to that point in time in the history of the American Legion in Virginia to hold this august office.  She also found time to initate, in 1978, the annual "Spinal Cord Injury Veterans/Old Times" pre-Christmas luncheon, held on the first Saturday in December at Post 190.  Another brainchild of hers is the annual "Hail and Fairwell" ceremony when incoming District, Post and Auxiliary officers are hailed and the out-going officers are bid  farewell.
