The new Auxiliary year has started out with a bang. Most of the existing members have renewed their membership, with only a few who have not. I am asking for your help, if you know of anyone that would qualify as a member, invite them to a meeting to learn more.
To be eligible for membership in AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary one must be:
- Related to a member of AMVETS.
- Related to a deceased veteran who could have been eligible for membership in AMVETS.
- A female veteran.
We have membership applications available and one is also available on the website. There are many ways available to be an active member, volunteering throughout the community, at hospitals and care facilities, and in our schools. We also support National project like: St. Jude’s Hospital, Paws With A Cause, and John Tracy Clinics for the hearing impaired.
We would like to thank the ladies who donated bars and helped out at our Thursday Night Food Night. Although the weather wasn’t the greatest, we were able to raise some money for our scholarship fund. On February 28th we will have another meal featuring 4 types of soup, fruit salad, a variety of breads, and birthday cake for dessert.
Speaking of scholarships, each year we are proud to be able to award at least one scholarship to a deserving High School Senior. The past few years we have been able to award more than one. Scholarship forms can be found at the High School or through one of local officers. If you know of a future graduate, encourage them to apply. One of the stipulations is to be related to an AMVET.
Please continue to support AMVETS, the AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary, Sons of AMVETS, and the WAVP events.
We Waited together, not lets work together
