Thanks to all that attended the VFW Auxiliary Department of Oregon Trainings. I enjoyed the energy that everyone is ready to jump in and work the programs again this year. Let’s keep that energy alive and find creative ways to support our Veterans, Military and Families.
Zoom meetings for the Mentoring program will begin the 3rd week of September. If you didn’t sign up at the trainings shoot me an email and I will add you to the zoom invite.
Does your Auxiliary or your officers need mentoring on how to set up your own mentoring program? Please reach out to me and I will assist in coming up with ideas that will work best for your auxiliary members and your area.
I have been fortunate enough to have many mentors surrounding me as I learned about this wonderful organization. Even if you are still learning, you may already have the skills to do a few things well and your skills can help someone in your auxiliary to be a thriving and successful member.
The more we share in the jobs and duties of each of our auxiliaries the stronger we will be in serving our veterans miliary and families. Help our members get involved and remind them of their "why”.
A little housekeeping, this program does not currently have a hashtag so if you are posting on Facebook, please use the #vfwauxiliary.
Remember to send me reports, by email or snail mail. I will let you know when I receive it. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. And please let me know that you have received this email.
All ideas are should be heard.
Take an opportunity to expand on what you have done in the past, to continue to help those ideas and activities move into the future.
