Auxiliary Members, Jan 2020
They plan to have the Veterans Memorial park mostly complete by July 4, 2020. In checking my newsletter last month I noticed I put the wrong year for the Veterans Memorial Park.
If you would like our newsletter by e-mail send me your e-mail. Put VFW in description as it will go to my junk mail. I will e-mail you back to be sure I have a correct e-mail before I take you off the newsletter mailing. If you are one of our snowbirds this will enable you to receive your newsletter all year.
Mid-Winter at the Marriot is Jan 16 to 19, 2020. District meeting in Appleton is Sunday, Apr. 19, 2020 at 1PM. The State Conference will be June 3 to June 7, 2020 at the Crown Plaza in Plymouth.
Julia Nelson placed 3rd at District for her Patriot Pen speech. Great job Julia.
In writing about the cancer grant I failed to mention that you need to be a member in good standing (have paid your current dues) and been a member for 1 year. You can get 2 grants in your lifetime as a VFW Auxiliary member. Contact me with any questions about our cancer grant. The cancer grant form in on the internet under the Auxiliary forms. Call me if any questions. The form is filled out by you and your doctor needs to fill in part of the form.
If you are an annual member and wish to go Life call me and I will give you the amount you will owe. Annual members we only need the money and date of your birth for you to become a Life member.
Caitlin Amundson is the District Membership chairman. She sent letters to any of our members who had not paid your dues for the 2020 Year. She also mentioned becoming a Life Member. Our Auxiliary usually sends notices in Oct, but I missed this meeting and we forgot to send notices. A big thank you goes to Caitlin for sending notices. Hopefully you have sent in your dues.
The other question concerning the cancer grant is where does the money come from for the grant. Your dues pays for this grant. Our Auxiliary has a cancer fund that we ask Life members to pay $5 a year. The annual members this $5 comes out of your dues.
Hoping this finds all of you in good health. If you have been ill I hope for quick recovery.
Gladys Sanborn, Treasurer, address is 8081 County Road 31 SE. Alexandria, MN. 56308. Send her your dues of $20 and change of address. Life members send your $5 for the cancer program to Gladys. If you change your phone to a cell phone let Gladys know too. To be able to get your newsletter we need your change of addresses.
