The American Legion Auxiliary is dear to Ackley resident Sandy Scallons heart. She joined the Ackley American Legion Auxiliary, in 1999, to honor her father, ‘Jack’ Murphy. Murphy served in the US Army during WWII.
On Oct. 2, Scallon was sworn in as the president of the 3rd District of Iowa. She was elected as vice-president of the unit two years ago and replaces Pat Williams who recommended her for the presidency.
