From the VFW Auxiliary Treasurer

  

Season’s Greetings,

Here we are again, at the end of another calendar year. (Remember the Auxiliary year is from July1 to June31) It has been a very active year in the Auxiliary.  We have seen many changes in Post also. 

First and foremost, we have had a busy year going to and doing for our VA hospitalized Veterans. Again, we are still helping to keep the pantry at the local school and the Lake Baldwin panty supplied for the homeless. We donated to help assist the people in the Panhandle who were hit by hurricane Michael. Now the auxiliary is in the middle of having renovating to the bathrooms and part of the bingo hall, we have helped up grade the kitchen with some new appliances. We have been here to assist some of our members who have had a major illness. We can only do these things with a strong membership. At the time of this posting we are 12 members short of being 100%, we started out great and I was sure we would have all our members’ dues paid by now. This is a very special organization and if you already have a membership please keep it active, if you need assistance to stay active, we are here to help and assist you. Things have changed and if you do not pay your dues by Dec 31st you will have to reapply for membership. Please get your dues in to me by Dec 20th as National will be closed for the holidays until after the 1st. Lastly this year we lost some of our members who were busy members and will be truly missed. We do need more members to volunteer.

In closing I want to remind you all we are a small part of a greater thing our loved ones fought and died for. It is our responsibility to keep it growing. To keep teaching love of country and patriotism!  If you know a friend, or a loved one who may be eligible to join us please ask them to apply for membership in this great organization. I’m here to help you in anyway I may. I hope everyone has a “Happy, Healthy and Holy 2018 Holiday Season” God bless America and all the freedoms we enjoy because of the Brave!
