Thomas Jefferson wrote about our Constitution: "On every question of construction [let us] carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
"The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” The Federalist, No. 45 Essays by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison.
Check out the Oregon Legislative website and see what is being considered or has already been sent to be signed. Check Action Corp information and report to your members at the meetings then report to the Department Legislative Chairman.
Keep informed and keep informing others.
Remember to send the year-end report. Don't get confused by using the wrong form.
Hello Sisters and Brothers,
Welcome to 2023. I hope your year ended well.
I’m looking forward to a new and better year.
I would like to thank the auxiliaries who have turned in reports to me.
In no certain order are auxiliaries 3232, 9745, 4108, 12141, 732, and 1324.
We have over 40 auxiliaries in Oregon. I’m missing reports.
In November I expected reports from all auxiliaries. You can still turn your reports in for when you voted. How many members voted? Did you help someone fill out their ballet? You can count your time helping. Did you drive to drop off your ballet? You can count your mileage.
Are you going to city council meetings or town halls? You can turn in your hours and mileage when you go to these. Are you listening in on zoom? You can turn in your hours for those, also.
How about reading the Action Corps? Do you read it for 10 minutes? 15 or 20 minutes? Do you take action? Have a note pad by your computer, jot down-I read Action Corps for 15 minutes and took one action for whatever action it was at that time. Or two actions.
I will be getting in touch with everyone, so they understand how this works.
Thank you for all you do for our Veterans.
