Still in the planning stage is a Veterans Day Parade in the Village of Greendale, scheduled for Saturday, November 3rd. Hoping all information will be available at our October 22nd meeting. Also scheduled is the Downtown Milwaukee Veterans Day Parade set for November 10th. Details as of now have not been finalized. Will share info as soon as possible.
Thanks to Jane Mlenar, a new Auxiliary Flag is in the works. It will have the New Auxiliary Emblem, see top of page, lighter in weight, more suitable for marching. Our current meeting flag is extremely heavy for marching, especially on a windy day!
Attendance at our monthly meetings has been outstanding. Thank you to ALL members able to attend a meeting or not. Your membership is important to the auxiliary, as we all continue “REACHING FOR THE STARS FOR VETERANS”
