Auxiliary Newsletter – February, 2019

Greetings Brothers and Sisters of VFWA 10519,


Come one Come all to the 4th District Winter Meeting! When and where you ask? This Sunday, February 10th, to be held at Clifford’s Supper Club, 10418 W. Forest Home Ave. Department President Laurel Ann Wiese will be paying her official visit at this meeting. Let’s show her what an awesome auxiliary we are. ALL members are invited!

This meeting will include the Voice of Democracy and Patriots Pen Presentations and Awards for the 4th District. Genevieve Skibicki, Patriots Pen entrant, was not only first place in our post and auxiliary, she placed first in District and 5th in Department. Come show your support for all the young winners that participated. Presentations and awards will begin at 12:00 noon. A short social with post members, winners and their families. Auxiliary meeting to follow. Looking forward to seeing MANY auxiliary members present.


The weather did not cooperate for our January Meeting. Commander John and I felt for the safety and well being of our members it was best to cancel. Our auxiliary business has been taken care of, we are current on all work that needed to be done. Did miss seeing everyone, hopefully February will be kind to us.


We did participate in Wreaths Across America on December 15th at the National Cemetery on the VA Grounds (Zablocki). Unusually warm weather, short patriotic program and laying of the wreaths. Great attendance, heartwarming to see the young people showing their patriotic side.


Post and Auxiliary Christmas Party was well attended. We had 76 reservations. Thank you to auxiliary members for providing hors d’oeuvres and desserts. You always go above and beyond. Door prizes provided by the post and numerous donations. Again thanks to Marilyn Volland for all the shopping, wrapping and presentation of “gifts” for those in attendance.


Thoughts and Prayers needed for our members Jim Winkleski and Virginia Roche-Orlowski both are battling health issues. Good wishes going out to all! See you on Sunday, February 10th for District Meeting, and also on Monday, February 25th for post and auxiliary February meeting.
