Greetings Brothers and Sisters of VFWA 10519,
Welcome to September and new annual member Linda Conatty. She joins our auxiliary under the eligibility of her husband Army Veteran “Sarge” (AKA Dan). You may hear his cadence count as he leads the Color Guard. Thank you Sarge and welcome Linda.
Thank you to all members that have sent in their annual dues. Please take advantage of the stamped, self addressed envelope that was sent out last month and renew your membership today. Your $18.00 renewal can be made out to VFWA 10519 and sent to Treasurer Julie Pipke, 4301 S. 43 St. Greenfield, WI 53220. Again, thank you for your continued support of our Veterans. You are an important part of the auxiliary. Hope to see you at a monthly meeting, 4th Monday of the month at 6:30.
Once again the VFW newspaper is being offered for $3.00. This offer is good only through the auxiliary. Sign up will end November 26th. If interested please submit a check to Julie Pipke, treasurer, check payable to VFWA 10519. Great way to stay up to date on all programs for both VFW and VFWA.
At our August meeting it was an honor to have our Patriotic Art Entrant, Kayla Juds and her family join us for a joint presentation with the post. Not only did Kayla win first place ($1,000) in department (state), she went on to National Competition where her painting was awarded first placed, a $10,000 scholarship. Stop by the post to see her award winning painting, on display in the VFW display case. Kayla is attending UW Oshkosh where she is pursuing a degree in nursing. She also will be taking art classes for, and I quote “could never give up my love for painting”.
Also at our August meeting was Department Sr. Vice President Mary Brown. Mary was the chairman for the Patriotic Art Awards 2017-2018. What a joy to have both Kayla and Mary in attendance.
September 24th, 6:30 will be the next post and auxiliary meeting. Social time always follows the meeting. See you then. Well wishes to all.
