To all who came to our Auxiliary Meeting, THANK YOU. Several motions were carried which allowed us to accomplish the following:
-Make an auction gift basket for a Bonham VA fundraiser
-Send a card to a female Veteran who will be 101
-Make a donation to the Bonham VAVS
-Make a donation to the VOD in memory of Barbara Hoffman, our Dept Secretary, who recently passed away
We have Ways & Means raffle tickets for sale for $1 ea or 6 for $5. The drawing will be held at Midwinter in January for a flat screen TV-40″, Android Tablet 7″, Digital Camera, and several other items. We’re also selling beautiful black stallion pins for $3 ea to help Dept with expenses. The Bonham VA and VAVS has a new needs list, it’s posted on the bulletin board at the post or see me for a copy. The Bonham VA greatly appreciates our donations.
As of Aug 21st, we are no longer the “Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW”. We are now the “VFW Auxiliary” and eligible males can join the VFW Auxiliary. We have received new membership application forms. If you are interested in becoming a member of the VFW Auxiliary, please contact me or the treasurer, Lori Brouillette. Copies of the application can also be picked up at the post from the bartenders. We welcome male members and look forward to working as one team. The VFW Store on line will be selling a variety of Ladies Auxiliary items now that our name has changed to The Auxiliary. If you order items from the VFW Store on line, the Dept of Texas receives a kick back.
Our District President will attend our meeting on Sep 19th and conduct our inspection. Please show your support and try to attend this meeting and visit with the Dist President.
Check the calendar and come out to the post for all the programs our Commander and Priscilla McMurry will be conducting this month, along with our Labor of Love Event over Labor Day Weekend. Garage sale items will be accepted starting Mon, Aug 31st. If you have heavy items such as furniture or appliances, please call 972-849-5697 for a pickup. If you’re donating a dish for the food auction on Sep 4th, please remember to write the name of the dish and ingredients on a card so the auctioneer can describe the dish to the audience. Thanks everyone for your support. Please hug a Veteran. Let them know how much we support them.
