Thanks everyone who attended the June meeting. Sadly we draped our charter for sister Ann Embry who passed away on June 17th.
I greatly appreciate all of you who volunteered to cook on taco nights and 3rd Saturdays! We have filled the first half of the year for 3rd Saturdays, we still need to fill January-June.
We voted to send care packages to military members Austin James and Craig Ellis who are deployed overseas.
Jose Casado gave an update on the Memorial Park Project. A total of 83 bricks were sold and additional bricks purchased in memory of past commanders. The benches and plants in place look good. Great job to everyone involved in this project!
We’ll hold a cakewalk on Friday, July 1st, at 5:30pm to raise money to purchase an additional hotel room for members to attend the upcoming auxiliary training session July 8-9 in Austin. We need your donations of cakes or other baked goods and of course your participation to make this a successful event.
Don’t forget about our program and decorating your golf carts for Independence Day. We’ll all meet at the flagpoles at 10am on Monday the 4th. After a short program we’ll parade around the neighborhood in our carts, do a drive-by the post for judging, including prizes, then meet on the back deck of the post for watermelon. Thank you Priscilla McMurry for putting this and all of our programs together!
Jan Vogelsang and her sister Marcy Harrelson will receive their 50-Year Auxiliary Pins at our next meeting on July 16th. Everyone please try to attend to congratulate these ladies on their 50 years of service to the Auxiliary!
Our Auxiliary Call Meeting will be held in Greenville on Sunday, July 17th. This is an important meeting as we discuss our programs and goals for the coming year. Please contact me if you’re interested in attending this meeting.
I look forward to a productive auxiliary year with all of you! We’re a great team and do a great job supporting our post and our veterans. Thank you!
