Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Recapping the last twelve months, we have had a very successful year.

Jim “Nick” Nichols,
Hi Auxiliary members,
What a month December was! We started off with our annual Collin County Toys 4 Tots Motorcycle ride which raised over $14,000 for the Toys 4 Tots program. Our Children’s Christmas Party had 50 kids in attendance! Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped by to pass out gifts. Patients Day Out for the Bonham Veterans was held at the Post on December 16th. A fun time was had by all!
The Auxiliary will be cooking the 1st and 4th Fridays of every month and we need volunteers to cook and serve. Sign- up sheet in back hallway at post. Sign up for January, February and March please.
A huge THANK YOU to all who volunteered these past several months. These events take a lot of time, energy and volunteers. We have great members in our auxiliary and we’re always looking new members because fresh faces bring fresh ideas!
Check your email next week for a current calendar of events for the Auxiliary. Our next meeting is January 14th @ 6:30pm at the post.

Saving Coupons for Veterans Families
We have been asked to save coupons from our newspaper inserts, etc., to be distributed to families of current and former veterans. It would help if you can cut them out, but if not, just bring in the entire insert. Give them to the person working the cantina. Please contact Tobi Viles for additional information.
