 SLICE WITH A PRICE
“Every thought is a seed.  If you plant crab apples don’t count on harvesting Golden Delicious.” - Bill Meyer. 

My theme is “Slice with a Price.” If you slice an Apple crosswise, you will find a Star in that Apple.
 My  symbol is an Apple with a crosswise slice of an apple with that star leaning on it.   Freedom is not for free, and we in the American Legion Auxiliary understand the Price paid to maintain that Freedom.  We in the USA enjoy our own “slice” of the “Good Life” thanks to a Veteran and that is something we can never forget.  
The Apple: a simple symbol.  It can represent Good Health, Education, American Values and Technology; but today it represents our past, present and future in the American Legion Auxiliary.
 
Past:  Recognizing our Veterans who are the roots of our organization: Those who have paid the “Ultimate Price,”  those who are gone but not forgotten, and  those who are with us who need our support.  
 
Present:  Using our trunk, branches and fruit to continue working our programs to keep this organization alive and well  today.
 
Future:  Planting seeds to educate youth and nurture new members.
