VFW Awards Essay Contest Winners

The Ladies Auxiliary of the Coulterville VFW Post 9454 recently awarded the first, second and third place winners of their post's Patriot's Pen Essay Contest. Patriot's Pen is a national contest for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Each writes an essay based on a theme chosen by the VFW. This year's theme was "Why I am an American Patriot?"

Last week Post Commander Jim Loeser, Ladies Auxiliary President Nita Gordon and other members of the VFW met at Don Pedro Elementary School and awarded Aaron Rosander with First Place, Marissa Selby with Second Place and Desiree Gonzales with Third Place. Each winner received a VFW Patriot's Pen back-pack, tickets to theme parks and gift cards.
