How do we move on and continue to do what we need to do for our Veterans and those that are still serving? I will do more e-mail messages to our Auxiliary members with updates and news. If you you have not given me any changes to you email address, now is the time. Send me a message email@example.com with updated information. As of right now there will me no meeting in April and the WAVP continues to be closed. They will be have a meal on Thursdays with curbside pick up. Last week’s meal was a success serving around 70. This is just one way we can continue to do what we do. I am also working on setting up a way that we can video conference our meetings. My daughter set up something like this for our family and was comforting to be able to facetime with my siblings, daughter, and many of my nieces and nephews.
One thing that we will have to do this month is our 6 month reports. If you have anything to report for volunteering, monetary donations, clothing and household donations, etc. please get that information to me. Email me the information firstname.lastname@example.org or if you happen to come to Hy-Vee you can bring me the information.
Another way to help support the AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary is to give a monetary donation to the Department of Iowa AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary. Normally our biggest fundraiser supporting the Department is held at the Spring SEC in April. Since we have not been able to get out there to sell raffle tickets and the meeting is cancelled, I am asking that if you would like to give support to mail a donation to me: Mary Steinbach 901 7th Ave. NW Waverly, Iowa 50677
Lastly, April is a month that we start looking for Offices for the AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary. If you currently hold an office and are interested to keeping that position, let me know. If you would like to hold a different office, let me know, if you are not an officer and would like to set up into one of the offices, let me know. Currently many of us hold multiple positions and it would be great if we could get more people involved. not only as officers, but (when we can again) attending the meetings, bringing new ideas and programs to help our Veterans, our community, and our youth.
Thank you for your continued support. We are STRONG, we are Iowans pulling together to get things done and make things work. Stay strong, stay healthy, and stay home as much as possible.
