Thanks to everyone who attended last month’s meeting and those that filled in for our absent officers. Sadly, we draped the charter for Dorothy Phillips and our Past National President Lucille Suchina. Monica Thompson, Barbara DiGangi and Paralee Cassell would love to hear from friends. Contact me for their addresses if you’d like to send them a card.
We are currently in search of an Auxiliary Chaplain to take Monica’s place. Please contact me if you’re interested.
We passed several motions last month to include donating funds to the Operation Changing Lives Hero Walk in honor of all Veterans at Post 7873, and we presented that check to Dept at the Mid-Winter Convention last month. We approved our name change to VFW Auxiliary to Post 7873 Lake Texoma. We also approved spending funds for the purchase of new floor mats for the slab cantina and for table centerpieces for the upcoming Dist 1 meeting on Feb 21st.
At our next meeting I will share with you details of the Mid-Winter Conference I recently attended in Austin. One key item I need to bring to your attention now, specifically for annual members, annual members considering converting to a life member, and those considering joining as a life member, is that the life membership dues may increase next auxiliary year by DOUBLE the current fee. So now is the time to become a life member!
On Feb 7th at 1pm we’ll have a planning meeting to discuss preparations for the Feb 21st Dist 1 meeting we’re hosting at our post. If you can help with this event please attend this planning meeting. We’ll be needing baked goods for breakfast in the form of muffins, pastries, donuts, bread loaves, etc. The Keeters are preparing a large lunch including dessert for our guests and we need helpers to set up, serve and clean up.
Thank you members and friends who consistently volunteer to serve our veterans in honor of their sacrifices.
