President's Corner

Hello everyone,
Happy Fourth of July.  It is the start of a new year and YES there are still changes that will be occurring.  The first change will be for ALL LIFE MEMBERS, you will be receiving new cards in the mail in the month of July.  Please do not throw them away.  If you are one of the members with a metal card, you can keep the card for memories, however, those cards will no longer be recognized since they were issued under Ladies VFW Auxiliary.  Our new cards will read VFW Auxiliary.  The VFW National Store will not be selling the metal cards anymore for your personal purchase either.  

Every member in good standing receives their VFW Auxiliary magazine.  In this month’s issue, there are a few important articles I think everyone should be aware of.  There is an article on the new payment of our dues, called MALTA.  Our Program and Leadership Conference is on August 11-13th at the Radisson Hotel in Camp Hill.  This is for all members and there will be a class for learning about the MALTA PROGRAM AT THIS CONFERENCE.  There is another article about a National program to enhance your Auxiliaries membership and help with your Auxiliaries attaining completion in all the other programs.  Since this is our 70th Anniversary year, this would be a wonderful way to celebrate our Auxiliary and all the accomplishments over the years, by putting on a community Fun Festival.  

This past year was a banner year and I contribute the success of the Auxiliary to ALL the Auxiliary Members.  EACH One WORKED AS A TEAM.  THANK YOU.  WE CAN DO IT AGAIN.  We are beginning a new year and we are looking for all our members who have left our Auxiliary for some reason or another.  We would like to invite you back and we are seeking fresh new ideas.  We have a community service member who sets up fundraisers for us and we strive to assist the Veterans in the community and adopt a unit each year.  

We invite you and any family member who is eligible male and female to come and join our Auxiliary.  Our Buddy Poppy display has taken first place at Department Convention in Category 3 and will be going to National for judging there.  Thank you to our member who worked hard on the display as she was recuperating from surgery.  We will ask for her help again, but not for her to go through surgery to make a display.  Just kidding.  

Thank you again and I hope to see more of our members and some of those members who have taken a leave of absence come back.

Thank you for all you do for the Veterans, please keep supporting our Post, our Veterans and the Auxiliary in the New Year.   We are here because of a Veteran.  Let’s make this a strong Post/Auxiliary. 

Dale Lepore Auxiliary President
