The Pleasanton City Council shined a spotlight on a well-known veterans support organization and a lesser-known disease with separate proclamations earlier this month.

The council joined members of Pleasanton Post 237 in recognizing the 100th anniversary of the national American Legion, which advocates for and supports military veterans and their families. American Legion Centennial Day was March 15.

Council members also presented a proclamation to Pleasanton resident Sarah Brunskill, co-chair of the Lymphatic Education and Research Foundation's California chapter, in recognition of March 6 as World Lymphedema Day. Brunskill's toddler son Grayson Howard, was born with lymphedema, a disease caused by blockages in the body's lymphatic system that can lead to impaired function and shortened lifespan for affected people.
