Auxiliary News

I have to make a retraction from last month’s newsletter. My eagle eye, Amy, caught that I had quoted the wrong amount for our annual dues. Dues this year are $25.00. You can pay your dues the night of the membership dinner, or you can mail them to me: Mary Steinbach 901 7th Ave. NW Waverly, Iowa. All renewals should be paid before December 31th. I am also asking that if you know of someone who would qualify as a member, invite them to join.

The Auxiliary had a very successful Food night in September, serving a meatloaf dinner. That night we also had a donation jar, collecting for the Honor Flight Program. A big thank you to all attending the dinner, donations to “Change to Make a Change” collecting almost $95.00, and the all the ladies helping to prepare and serve the food. We will be working on various projects throughout the upcoming year and appreciate your continued support. Our October meal will be our “Fabulous” Beef and noodles meal. Gather a group, leave the cooking the us and  enjoy the food.

The Auxiliary will be completing our 6 month report for any volunteering and charitable donations. If you have something you would like to claim, please get that information to me or one of the other officers. Just a few examples are: Hy-Vee register receipts for the schools, used materials donated to Trinkets and Togs or Goodwill, monetary donations to various national programs, meals made and delivered to elderly or shut-ins. Any thing you do benefiting Veterans, the community, our youth, hospitals and nursing homes may be reported. Through these reports we validate AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary as a non-profit organization. Nationally, Congress looks at the strength of AMVETS when making decisions about our Veterans and protecting the benefits they earned while serving.

We Waited together, Now Let’s Work Together
