Eight members of the Ladies’ Auxiliary, and one branch member, from Legion #113 in Ashcroft  attended a Gavel Passing in Okanagan Falls over the August long weekend. Southern region branches from BC attend, along with northern posts from Washington State. There were 107 attendees; Legion #113 had the largest number of people present , so were given a framed photograph of the arch which stands at the border near Osoyoos to keep for one year. Next August it will be returned to Ephrata, WA for the 2013 Gavel Passing.
