A new auxiliary year is upon us. Along with that, it’s time to renew your membership! Only $15.00 to renew, or better yet become a life member of the VFW Auxiliary. Give Amanda Patterson, membership chairman, (414-421-3528) or myself (414-327-2754) a call for more info on becoming a life member. If you like, join us at our June 23rd meeting, starting at 6:30, and renew at that time. You are important to Auxiliary 10519.
