Hi Auxiliary members,
May is proving to be a busy month. Sunday, May 5th is our District meeting is in Pottsboro. The meeting starts at 12:30. It would be great to have more auxiliary members in attendance. If you think you want to go please email me. I would love to have you. Bonham vets will be here on Sunday, May 19th at 11:30 am. We will be serving them lunch. We need a few volunteers and donation items for goodie bags and desserts. A signup sheet for volunteers and list of items needed will be at the bar. The Post’s Annual golf tournament is Monday, May 20th. They are looking for hole sponsors and players. If you’re interested in sponsoring a hole or playing please contact Nick Nichols. For those who signed up to volunteer an email will be sent to you with more information.
May25th we will be handing out Buddy Poppies, locations and times TBA at our May meeting. You don’t have to stay the whole day just an hour of your time helps support this program which funds the Relief Fund for Veterans in need.
Our Auxiliary meetings are important. Attending meetings keeps you informed of what is happening in our Auxiliary and Post. It’s an opportunity for you to share ideas and concerns. Our next meeting is Monday, May 13 at 6:30pm. I hope to see you there.
YOU are all very important. YOU are what makes our Auxiliary the best in District 1. Thank you for all that you do.
