November 2023 

Hello Brothers & Sisters,

October was certainly exciting. We have Instituted a brand-new Auxiliary. Please welcome, Greater Yamhill County, Auxiliary to Post #4015. They are starting out strong with 15 new members and 3 transfers. We held the Institution in McMinnville in the conference room at the Comfort Inn and Suites. Thank you to all of the line officers who made the trek to welcome our new Auxiliary.


I was able to visit several more Auxiliaries and the Portland VA Hospital this month. As I write this article, I am preparing to head to Salt Lake City, Utah for the Western Conference tomorrow. The Department of Oregon is in charge of the skit for the program – Auxiliary Outreach. We will be playing Auxiliary Jeopardy – this will be fun, trust me. I am hoping to video so we can put on Facebook later.


Well, we didn’t make the 95% in Membership by October 31st, but we are at 91.42% for paid percentage, we only need 413 renewals or new members. Totally doable by December 31, 2023. Let’s get those dues paid. Remember if you need a Dues Angel, reach out to someone at Department and we can help out.


I look forward to seeing you all soon. I have a list of auxiliaries to visit in November. During my visit to the VA Hospital in Portland, it was suggested that they make a registry on Amazon listing what they need. They jumped right on it, and it is in the works. Watch the website and Facebook for an announcement of when that will be available. I am going to notify Roseburg and White City to see if they might like to participate as well.


Happy Thanksgiving
