Welcome to the Ladies Auxiliary
It has been quite a ride on this journey in this short amount of time. There has been plenty of excitement along with a few challenges. The challenges that we face make us a stronger organization as we work through them. Now let me tell you about the fun stuff.
We had a great turn out for the School of Instruction. We had to bring more chairs on two different occasions. What a great problem to have! The Chairmen were all full of information that they wanted to share. They all used PowerPoint presentations to help educate the ladies and add a new twist to the school. We had a great time out by the pool on Friday night.
Next thing you know we are headed to the National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. Past Department President Lee had to rent a U-Haul to bring home all the awards including her award as President of the Year for her class. Congratulations to the great ladies of Florida that worked so hard on all of our programs, the Chairmen from last year and Lee.
As soon I got home I hit the road and started traveling to meet all of you hard working ladies. You ladies are so dedicated to our programs and put so much time and energy into your work. Our Veterans and communities are definitely the beneficiary of your all efforts. I have met such great people and had an outstanding time so far. Thank you to everyone that has been so hospitable to me as I am traveling around the state.
Remember together we will strive to “Keep America’s Veterans and Families Strong” as we “Awaken the Possibilities” for our great Organization. Along our path we will take time for “Saluting Veterans and Friends” as we work. This year marks the 100th anniversary of our National organization so we will be celebrating throughout the year!
Also we are the change that we want to see in this world and our organization. WE must continue to work together and set aside personal differences that might get in the way of our important work for the Veterans. Rosie says we have programs to work and races to win, so let’s get busy!
Loyally yours in service,
