Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
Pat yourselves on the back! That’s right, because of you, we received many awards at department convention in June. As your Auxiliary President, I had the honor of accepting them. So thank you, I truly love representing VFWA 10519. Awards presented were for Legislative, Hospital, Veterans and Military Support, Patriots Pen, Voice of Democracy and Veterans and Military Service. Most exciting, we were awarded 1st placed in Group 2 for the achievement award. That award is a BIG DEAL! Thank You again for all you do for our veterans and their families. I look forward to another award winning year! Keep up the outstanding work.
Our new year has begun, which means time to renew your annual membership. Please renew ASAP, being 100% by the end of August, qualifies us for a monetary award. Consider becoming a life member NOW! If passed at National Convention this month, life member fees will increase substantially. Take advantage of the lower rate before the increase. Info will be included in your renewal notice!
Poppies, Poppies, Poppies at Miller Park, Monday, August 28 and Tuesday, August 29th. Mark your calendars now to participate. The more members we have, the more we can collect to help our veterans and veteran projects. More detailed info in next month’s newsletter.
Special thank you goes out to Deb Patterson, for the MANY wheel chair bags she made for our veterans at Zablocki Medical Center.
Our next auxiliary meeting will be Monday, July 25th at 6:30. Hope to see many of you then. Until then, stay well and be safe.
