The Auxiliary did not meet in July as planned because we did not have enough ladies there to have an official meeting. I am encouraging any and all members to attend meetings, only if it just a few times a year. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:00 in the board room of the WAVP. Meeting are a great way to keep informed of what we are doing for our Veterans and to assist when possible.
Our food nights have been very successful, giving us the opportunity to make donations to various project in the community, scholarships for our youth, and to support the Department and National Organization. Through the Department and National Organization, we are able to secure and protect the benefits of our Veterans. Through the Auxiliary we can give emotional support to the families of our current serving military, and to the families who have lost a loved one. We all have ways we can help. Attend a meeting to learn more, bring ideas, and lend a helping hand when needed.
We will not be meeting in August, but will continue again in September.
With the upcoming months, we will be beginning our membership drive. Please continue your support not only renewing your membership, but seek other qualifying ladies to join our organization.
