Auxiliary Members, May 2019
We made enough money at our Bingo to donate $400 to Eagles Nest in Sauk Center. We appreciate all of you who supported us.
Remember Buddy Poppy Days are coming up. We will be getting donations for our Buddy Poppies May 10 and May 11 at different businesses. You can wear your Buddy Poppy all year and show support for our Veterans. We also get donations from businesses to support our Veterans.
If you would like to see what the Buddy Poppy cards from the last years look like stop at Roers Family Bakery. June puts all her cards in the window. While there thank them for donation rolls to the Veterans Home in Fergus Falls when we play Bingo on the 4th Tuesday of each month.

Anyone who is interested in quilting at the Post let me know. When they do not have anything going on in the back room we can use it. Let me know at 320-491-8527. I am trying to find out if there is an interest in quilting at the Post.
We will have an appreciation for our Veterans on Thur. May 2, 2019 at 6pm. The Veterans are welcome to bring a guest. We are asking you to call the Post at 320-763-9221 for reservations so we will know how many to cook for. The meal is free. Our Voice of Democracy and Patriot Pen winners will give their speeches. They do a great job. See you there.
Dates to remember are: May 2 is our appreciation for Veterans at Post. Our annual Salad Luncheon will be Thursday July 25 from 11:00AM to 1:00 PM at St. Mary’s Alexandria in their Great Hall. May 27 is Memorial Day. A parade will be downtown Alexandria with a program at Kinkead Cemetery.
To those who have been ill, we wish you a speedy recovery. To those who have lost a loved one, our prayers are with you.
BELIEVE…WE CAN DO IT!
