“Departments” and individual posts as “units.” A few programs, including

the Junior American Legion and Boy’s and Girl’s state are run by the American Legion, but Nelson said part of the organization’s main purpose is to educate children about patriotism, God and Country. “God comes fi rst, and then there’s country,” Nelson said. The members of the American Legion Auxiliary offers a system of support to military veterans, oftentimes wearing pin emblazoned in recognition of a veteran. Often times, women in the organization honor husbands or brothers. Nelson’s pin honors her brother. Some members of the Auxiliary were busy at work making poppies in preparation of “Poppy Day,” a Legion tradition since 1921. According to the Auxiliary’s website, the poppy became a symbol of hope for veterans.

was asked to participate in this tournament,” Martha said of being invited to such a unique tournament. “We’re honored to be a part of it.” The Russian players arrived on Thursday, March 22 and made the most of their stay before returning home on Monday, April 2. The list of activities for the Crowthers and their guests, Anton and Yury, included playing mini hockey, visiting Hampton Beach, visiting the New England Aquarium in Boston, going to see a Bruins game, and even spending a day at Woodbury Middle School. Anton and Yuri ate cotton candy for the fi rst time, caught their fi rst sight of the Atlantic Ocean, and enjoyed their visit to the Apple Store in the mall. “America is different than Russia,”

Yury said. “The schools are different, the shops are different. I like it all. It’s

been a great experience.” One of the positives from the experience was that many found it to be a good experience in a variety of ways. Players were able to see how their opponents played on the ice, and then learn about each other off the ice. “It’s a great opportunity for the kids to learn about other countries and cultures,” Scott said. “You get to experience a different lifestyle and build friendships for life. It’s also a good opportunity for our teams to see a different style of hockey. As a parent, it’s a great learning experience.” Brandon, who plays center for the Predators, also saw

great value in spending time with the Russian players both on and off the ice. He also spoke very highly of his new friends. “They move the puck really well and their goalies are really good,” Brandon said of the Russian players. “Yury is a really good goalie. Getting to know them has been great and being able to teach them about our culture has been good too.”

and rapidly changing landscape. The boundaries of public health action have become blurred, extending into other sectors that infl uence health opportunities and outcomes. WHO responds to these challenges using a six-point agenda. The six points address two health objectives, two strategic needs, and two operational approaches. The overall performance of WHO will be measured by the impact of its work on women’s health and health in Africa 1. Promoting development 2. Fostering health security 3.

All countries that are members of the United Nations may become members of WHO by accepting its Constitution.

Territories that are not responsible for the conduct of their international relations may be admitted as Associate Members upon application made on their behalf by the Member or other authority responsible for their international relations.
