Ryan Pangracs, a senior this fall at Leavenworth High School, presented his findings from his July trip to Philadelphia. Ryan was selected as our sponsored student to the Spirit of America Youth Leadership conference at Freedom’s Foundation at Valley Forge. Ryan is a well known Thespian and was featured in the Public Record section in the Friday, July 15, 2016 edition of the Leavenworth Times. In addition to being selected to be our sponsored student, he was recently selected to be an International Thespian Officer. He is only one of two such Kansas students ever to be selected for that honor. Ryan (third from right) provided a post-deployment briefing and answered the blizzard of questions. He stated that the trip was well worth our investment.
Brother Mike received his official certificate of membership into Sojourners at our August gathering. He is seen here in an official reenactment of the event that took place only moments before. (The cameraman was a little slow.) Bro. Barry, President (pro tem) presented the certificate. Bro. Dick served as the official witness.
This is the first meeting after the inaugural chapter newsletter, The Sunflower Patriot, was published. Our editor, Bro. Rick, presented the feedback he received as a result of the publications distribution. If you are a member of Fort Leavenworth Chapter #154 and did not receive an email copy, contact Bro. Rick at TheSunflowerPatriot at this web address.
