During the American Legion Department of Louisiana Convention held in Alexandria June 2-5, Chairperson of the Department Media and Communications Commission Lynette Blanchard (left) and Department Commander Richard Bell (center) recognized James O. Hall Post 19 in Jennings for winning two state-level Media and Communications Awards. Post Publicity Chairman Glenn McFarlain (right) accepted the accolades on Post 19’s behalf.
The post won the Outstanding Post Scrapbook Award for posts with a membership under 300. McFarlain acknowledged the wonderful support the post receives from editor Allison Cryer and her staff at the Jennings Daily News in helping to tell the story of The American Legion, and all veterans in the Jennings community. Post 19 also received the Multi/Media Award in Division 3 for submitting articles, stories and other Legion-associated works for publication in national venues. McFarlain was appreciative of the assistance provided by American Legion Magazine staff in getting articles published on Legiontown, a national online publication of The American Legion.
