Auxiliary Newsletter – December, 2018

 

Greetings Brothers and Sisters of VFWA 10519,

 

December has arrived bringing unseasonably cold temperatures. Hope all of our members are well and staying warm.

 

December 15th is the date for the VFW Christmas Party. Deadline for reservations is December 6th. Still time to send in your reservation. Detailed information is enclosed with this mailing. As in past years Auxiliary members provided an hors d’oeuvres, dessert or BOTH to be enjoyed by all in attendance. If unable to attend, Commander John and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year!

 

Once again the Post and Auxiliary will participate in Wreaths Across America. This will take place also on the 15th of December. We will leave the post at 10:15 for the National Cemetery on the VA Grounds (Zablocki) for an 11:00 program and placing of the wreaths. This is a National Program.

 

Great attendance at the November meeting, members, family and friends of the VOD and Patriots Pen winners. Outstanding, patriotic young people, honoring our country and Veterans. Mandy Patterson YOU ROCK for chairing this program, and auxiliary members for the refreshments enjoyed by all after the program.

 

Our Auxiliary received a “Buddy” Poppy VFW National Home for Children Award, for contributing a gift of 25 cents OR more per member to the Health and Happiness Fund for 2018-2019. This is just one of many awards we receive. Thank you to ALL auxiliary members for making this possible.

 

We will be collecting items for VA Medical Centers and Wisconsin Veterans Homes at our Mid-Winter Conference. (February 1st and 2nd). The Reps and Deps will pick out what is needed at their facility. Items needed: new only handkerchiefs, men’s and women’s socks, men’s and women’s underwear, white undershirts, body wash, denture cleaner, body lotion, alcohol free mouthwash, puzzles, puzzle books, books etc. Any donations are welcomed, the auxiliary will be purchasing a few of these items to donate also.
