Happy New Year!
As the saying goes...out with the old, in with the new. There is no time like today for new beginnings. Our auxiliary meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM. Please plan to attend at least one meeting this year, or attend one of our dinners or fund raisers. There is so much pride in our unit, yet there is such a small percentage of our 230 members that support what we do. We give back to many of our members as well as our veterans and community.
Our annual Sweetheart Reverse Raffle is February 11th. Tickets are available for $25 and limited to 100 tickets and includes admission, $1000 main board, door prizes and great buffet breakfast. Side boards and raffles also available.
If you haven’t paid your 2018 dues, you are now delinquent. Please pay immediately to keep your membership status. Thank you to our membership chairman Liz Miller for an outstanding job processing membership cards. Keep in mind if you pay your membership online, it goes to the Department of Ohio. There may be a delay in processing your card while waiting for our unit to receive notification of payment. If you have any questions regarding your membership, please see Liz.
Kudos to our juniors for the ornaments they made for the Painesville VA Clinic Christmas tree and the stuffed animals they sent to children of deployed soldiers. Our juniors do great things as well. If you are a junior member, please consider coming to a meeting. It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends too. They meet every two months, so it’s not a huge commitment. All juniors will be contacted with the date of the next junior meeting.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Veteran’s Day service and/or helped with dinner and those who helped with the children’s Halloween Party and Breakfast with Santa and regular scheduled dinners. Pray for all of those that need them and continued prays to our troops and their families.
