Greetings Brothers and Sisters of VFWA 10519,
Blue Skies, sunshine and the temp is 13 degrees. What’s wrong with this picture? Be patient, Spring is just two weeks away. (March 20th). Hoping the blue skies and sunshine continue along with warmer temps. Hope everyone is well, keeping safe and warm.
March is a rather quiet month for our auxiliary. April gives us the first opportunity for poppy distribution. This will take place at Miller Park on Monday April 15th. Time and complete details will be announced at our March meeting (25th) and in the April newsletter.
April 27th, Commander John and I will head to Freedom Wisconsin to participate in the Loyalty Day Celebration. The parade steps off at 10:30 A.M., followed by a celebration at the VFW Memorial Park. Complete details can be found in the VFW newspaper.
Nominations and election of officers will take place at our April 22nd meeting. Interested in holding an office? Please make it known!
Installation of newly elected officers will take place THURSDAY, MAY 23rd. A scheduling conflict required a date change. Please mark your calendars for the 23rd of May.
Another opportunity to volunteer will take place Friday, May 10th and Saturday May 11th. This is our annual Community Poppy Distribution. Signup sheets will be available at the April meeting, or contact Commander John (414-327-2754) for available spot and time. The more the merrier, all money collected goes to helping our Veterans and their Families.
You can become a life member of the VFW National Home for Children. Life membership is $50.00. Mandy Patterson will have applications with her at our March meeting. Consider becoming a life member at this time.
Happy to report Virginia Roche-Orlowski is doing well, enjoying sunshine and warmer weather, looking forward to attending a meeting and hopefully poppy distribution.
Please keep member Jim Winkleski in your thoughts and prayers, the battle with health issues continues.
Good Wishes going out to all our members. Hope to see you at our March 25th meeting. 6:30, 4th Monday of the month!
