Hello brothers and sister.

It’s just about the end of our reporting year.  I  can’t wait to see what your Auxiliaries have been doing thru this year. 

Thank you for all the pictures and reports that I have been getting thru the year. Thank you for taking pictures when President Debby visited and I was  not able to be there.  The year isn’t finished yet so please keep the pictures and reports coming. 

The Year End Reports are due to all the Chairmen by April 5.  We would all love to see 100% in reporting.  We have a lot of work to do before we turn our reports into Department and National. 

I think it would be a good learning experience if the Past Department Presidents and the Auxiliaries that have them to bring their History books to Convention.  It would be nice to see what has been done in the past and remind us what has been done in the past that we have forgotten.


Thank you again for the reports so far and the photos for Debby’s year.  Can’t wait to see you all at Convention at Seven Feathers in June and handing out the awards.

I will be having the new history books judged at Department.

 I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year’s.  For some I know it is a difficult time.

If you have any pictures of Valorie’s year, please get them to me asap as I will be finishing her book and digital frame up before I go on the VFWA National Cruise at the latter part of the month so that it is ready to present to her at Mid-Winter. 

If you have any pictures of Debby’s year so far, please bring them to Mid-Winter so that I can get a bigger head start on hers than I have on Val’s.  I am such a procrastinator, that I am really behind on Val’s.

I have been receiving reports slowly and would like to see some more.  If you want, you can give them to me at Mid-Winter.

If you were active doing dinners for Thanksgiving or Christmas for the Community, Church, that involved the VFWA members for Community Outreach, Nursing Homes or Hospitals by visiting the veterans there and have pictures, please send them to me or to Cookie so we can get them up on the Dept Facebook page and the Website.  Both need more pictures of what we are doing in the community.

I hope each and every one of you have a very wonderful year to come.  Thank you for all that each and every one of you do for our veterans.
