Auxiliary News Letter for Jan.,Feb., Mar. 2018
Dear Ladies of the Auxiliary,
Special Greetings to Our Auxiliary Sisters. I hope that each of you enjoyed the holiday season with your families and friends. As I am trying to write this newsletter the weather has gone into the negative digits with the high of -8. This is the day after Christmas and it won’t be heating up any time soon. I am thinking that our snowbirds are happy to not have to deal with the chill. Enjoy your winter and know that those of us who are left behind are really jealous at this moment.
Winter means that we still have many events at the Post and I encourage all of you to check out the Tuesday Night Burger and Bingo, and the Friday afternoon meat –raffles. We hope you will have an opportunity to come in and support our American Legion Post home. We have many opportunities to volunteer your time and really need kitchen help to sub for those that will be gone for the next 3 months. If you are available, please let us know. I know many have signed up to sub, but many are also unavailable. Please join us….. many hands working together make light the work!
This winter we are going to try something different with our meetings. We will have the Executive meetings only for January and February. The Exec meetings will be held at noon on Jan.9, & Feb.6th. The March meeting will also be a daytime meeting. The date for this is tentatively set for March 13th at 1:00 p.m. Please mark your calendars for these changes.
We have several of our members who are undergoing medical care. Prayers for comfort and healing.
Mid-Winter Conference will be held in Melrose on Feb. 10, 2018.
Please check the calendar for more information.
