​​​Dear Sisters & Brothers of the 4287 Auxiliary,

  

Hello Auxiliary Members!


Our year supporting Veterans and Families has been a good one. March will be a busy month with the 7th Annual Orlando Rocks for Veterans benefit on March 23, 2019 the doors will open at 3:00 pm. Please, plan to attend and support our function. March 30th is a trip to Veterans Village in Fort McCoy  for a great BBQ to help the Veterans living there. The annual picnic is a wonderful day and it will be much more of a celebration,  as the National Auxiliary President, Sandi Kriebe,l will be visiting. She will be honored with a beautiful Aisle of Flags, a brick with her name to honor her visit. 


Remember our meeting night is the 3rd Monday of the month.

Our next meeting is March 18th @7PM.  As our auxiliary year draws to a close, we need to start thinking of who you want to represent you as officers of this auxiliary for the 2019-2020 year. 

April 15th is our meeting to elect officers for the 2019-2020 year. It is time you came to the meetings and chose the officers. As a member the veterans thank you for keeping our membership base strong, but your active support would make it stronger. A big Thank you to all who volunteer and support the auxiliary now. We would not be the great auxiliary we are without their support. We just need more to help the ones who volunteer now. Reporting of our activities to the Department of Florida Aux. closes its reporting sites April 10th, ,so please get all your good work reported.  

May God bless Our Veterans, Our Troops Our Families & America!

Loyally, 

Marlene Marlow Auxiliary President 2018-2019.

From the VFW Auxiliary Treasurer

    

                               Happy St Patrick’s day / Happy Easter


  As this is the beginning of Spring many things are starting fresh and new.  There have been some new changes in the Post to update it and make it fresh. Thanks to the hard work of the volunteers for our Bingo, we have remodeled the bathrooms --- they are beautiful. Why, you say, did we do that, because they truly needed to be done & it’s the one place everyone visits, maybe the most used room in the building. 

With the beginning of Spring, it is time to vote for new officers for the Post and Auxiliary. At the April 15th, meeting we will be having nominations and elections, so if you want to run for an office, or you have someone you want in office, come be nominated or nominate someone. You need to come and be apart of a good thing. We do good work for the Veterans and the community. 

   Also, with spring we start to pay our dues for the 2020 year. Do we start early? You bet, because it takes a long time to have everyone in “good standing”.  So, if you need to use the auxiliary benefits you can, and because many of us are procrastinator’s we find it easy to put off till tomorrow or just don’t have it in the budget. If you ever find you are short, please don’t lose your membership.  We have a relief fund to assist you with, we are here for each other in sisterhood and brother 

Welcome and best of luck to the new kitchen staff and the new Canteen Manager!

I hope everyone has a supper sparkly spring

May God bless America and all the freedoms we enjoy because of the Brave!

                                                            Amen.
