We were successful collecting items to be donated to the Marshalltown VA home and to Cedar Valley Friends of the Family.

We ask that members continue to collect and turn in Hy-Vee receipts and Box Tops for Education through April 15. Items can be turned in to any Auxiliary officer.

This past month we mourn the loss of long time member, Elda Drewis.

Hospital Chair, Wanda Benning reported that Jean, Dita, Patty, Marlys, Sandy volunteered at the Veterans’ Home on February 6.  The ladies spent the morning cutting out patterns, and the afternoon playing BINGO with the residents.  On February 13, Jean and Patty went to Marshalltown for the Salute to Hospitalized Veterans.  They distributed ice cream and brownies during the social hour.

The dates for the Department Convention have been changed.  The convention will still be held in Marshalltown, but will be held on June 12, 13, and 14.

Waverly AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary will be presenting a $500. Lavon Juhl Memorial Scholarship to a deserving graduating student.  Scholarship forms are available at the High School or you can contact me for a form. This memorial donation was given to the Auxiliary from the Juhl family.

Just want you to know that we plan to have a Hors d’oeuvres March 4th at the WAVP (American Legion) @ 5:30 pm.  Please pass this on to the rest.  This is for all the organizations, so inform all and let’s have some fun like always….the more the merrier. This gathering is going to be a learning experience so let’s SUPPORT and help one another and make it work and not be critical about anything.  Also, check the calendar for food night information. This month we will be serving soups, fresh bread, and a dessert. Join the fun!

We would like to continue this monthly and get back to recognizing birthdays and anniversaries.
