Auxiliary Newspaper August, 2019


Greetings Brothers and Sisters of VFWA 10519,


Our Auxiliary year is in full swing. It is that time of year to renew your annual membership. All members are important to the success of our organization. Renewal notices have been sent out. If you have not received yours please call Treasurer Julie Pipke 414-303-3886 or email Thank you to all that have renewed. If you have not done so, please consider renewing today. Reaching 100% by August 31 would make us eligible for a monetary award from Department at the Mid-Winter Convention in February. Let’s work on recruiting new members into our fold. By word of mouth our message spreads. Personal contact, amazing how many people we know that never realized they were eligible to join. Let’s get the word out!


Come one come all to Miller Park, on Friday, September 6th, our final date for Poppy Distribution. Brewers vs Cubs. More information to follow at August meeting. We will meet at the Post and head to Miller Park together. This is a huge opportunity for the Post and Auxiliary.


Our National President, Peggy Haake, will be visiting Wisconsin September 10th-12th. I will be joining in the fun planned for her visit here in Wisconsin. Please go to WWW.WIVFWAUX to view and register for the activities, including meet and greet Tuesday, activities and box lunch Wednesday, and Dinner Wednesday evening. Great amount of information on WWW.WIVFWAUX. Hotel information is also presented on the website. Please let me know if you are interested. National President Peggy’s theme is “SERVING OUR VETERANS WITH ALOHA”. ALOHA means a perfect Greeting, a Farewell. ALOHA stands for LOVE,AFFECTION, COMPASSION, KINDNESS. ALOHA radiates warmth and caring, no expectations of anything in return. Let us remember and keep these words in our heart as Department Mary’s theme has us “GIVING HOPE TO VETERANS AND FAMILIES”


Deepest Sympathy to Joan Winkleski and family on the passing of her husband Jim, a Veteran and VFWA member. Please keep all our brothers and sisters in your prayers that are facing struggles at this time.


New address, phone number, need assistance or any questions please let me know. We like to be current on all our members. Look forward to seeing you at our August 26th meeting. Beginning at 6:30 with social time after. Our Post and Auxiliary members are going above and beyond when it comes to our social. Come check it out! Thanks Dan and Ellen, you’re spoiling us. But we love it!!

Nancy Ustruck

Auxiliary President
