Deutschlander is new commander

Walt Deutschlander was named commander of the Elijah B. Hayes American Legion Post No. 168 on June 10 at Father Connors Hall.

Deutschlander, who was also commander in 2006, will serve with Paul Lubker, second vice commander; Mike Mattos, sergeant-at-arms; Bill Whitfield, secretary/treasurer; Marcel Chapuis, adjunct; and Robert Slater, chaplain. The first vice commander will be announced at a later date.

Deutschlander, a New York native, came to Patterson from Milpitas 13 years ago when he retired from the electronics field.

Deutschlander urges veterans of all ages to join the monthly meetings. The legion has 100 members, and the veterans participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at the Patterson District Cemetery in May and the Veterans Day ceremony in the city park in November. The veterans have a float in the Apricot Fiesta Parade. The local post also sends a high school junior boy to Boys State and girl to Girls State leadership conferences.

The members of the legion will meet again at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at Father Connors Hall, 220 N. Salado Ave.

For information: Deutschlander, 892-8392.
