Kathy Baudrau and I attended the Mid-winter conference. Due to bad weather our Voice of Democracy winner from 5th district wasn’t able to attend the banquet. Kathy and I stayed over Sat. night as the weather was terrible. It was good to catch up on changes and be reminded of what we do for our veterans.
Our Auxiliary will be sending boxes to 3 of our servicemen serving our county. If you know of someone serving from our area please let me know. We figure it could take up to a month for them to get their boxes. We will only send to someone who will be their longer than a month.
I got calls about the cancer grant. Only VFW Auxiliary members can get the cancer grant. The Post does not offer a cancer grant. By putting information in the newsletter some Post members thought they could get cancer grants. I’m sorry about the confusion.
