Anna, Melissa, Blueridge and Westminister area residents, eyes wide open — one of your own has been nominated and elected to serve at the District Level of the American Legion, a veterans service organization.

Ashley Holland, a working mom, entrepreneur and Persian Gulf War Veteran still has time in her busy life to serve her community in the very demanding roll of District American Legion Historian.

In a landslide vote at the Spring District convention in Bonham, Ashley took the reins and forged ahead to face her new responsibilities.

Ashley can be described as a high definition, multi-tasking girl, and asset to our local Post 194. You can meet Ashley and other Legionnaires at the 1st annual “Lunch with the Legion” on Saturday, May 19 at the Texas Star bank, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in Anna.

This fundraiser is sponsored by The American Legion for the purpose of gaining awareness of your area service oriented Armed Forces veterans and the good work they do.
