Dallas 8/40 Salon 108

Dallas 8/40

Dallas Salon 108 of the Departmentale de Texas #32, was chartered in August 1928 and continues to be the oldest and largest Salon in Texas with a 2018-2019 membership of 101 ‘partners’; which includes partners from the 5th District, plus several other districts in the state. We can also boast that we have 7 Past State Auxiliary Presidents and 7 Past State 8/40 Chapeaus among our partnership. AND, our very own Sandra Winchester is the La Secretaire Nationale.

The EIGHT & FORTY partners of Dallas Salon 108 meet 3 times per year; May, August and December at Post 453 in Dallas. But, we also plan get-to-gethers, as Salon 108 partners, at the ALA meetings in D.E.C. and Mid-Winter in Austin, for "fun and photos", and every July at the Department conventions we meet with the other 5 Salons in Texas. The next Departmentale LaMarche will be in Austin, TX on July 9, 2020.

The Salon's colors are Red and White.

Our ladies work very hard on different fund raisers, during the year, so we can contribute to research in the effort to finding a cure for children afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis, TB, Asthma and other respiratory illnesses.

We’re also charged with donating to our Nurses Scholarship program, in supporting the medical community- specifically those professionals directly involved in respiratory illnesses in children.

Our Children & Youth program supports several organizations that provide assistance to children battling respiratory illnesses. In addition, we contribute annually to The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation and the National Jewish Health Center in Denver. NJH, founded in 1899, is a research institute specializing in respiratory, immune and allergic research and treatment. .

Le Chapeau Mickie's special project for her term is the Dallas Children's Hospital.

This years National Chapeau's theme is "Hearts in Service for Our Special Children".

Press Releases

This year we are working on several different fund raisers, to raise the funds necessary to support our programs; to assist children with respiratory disease and to help in the research to eradicate tuberculosis, cystic fibrosis and other respiratory ailments.

The annual Salon 108 Christmas dinner/meeting is held on the second Saturday in December. We do not exchange gifts, instead we bring toys for Dallas Childrens' Hospital Pulmonary Wing. Mrs. Clause happens to be a partner of our 8/40 Salon, so, after the meeting she and Santa Clause put all the gifts into their sleigh and drive to Dallas Childrens' Hospital and make their delivery.
