PRESIDENT

VERGIE MUNOZ

The Easter Party was fun for all!  We had a great turn out.  The kids enjoyed their baskets and egg hunt.  We couldn’t have done this if it wasn’t for the awesome volunteers to help from beginning to end.  A special thank you to Don Bynum for his large donation of Easter basket fillers.  Also, to Evelyn Figueroa for her donation and any names that I may have missed, your donation didn’t go unnoticed.  Thank you again to the awesome helpers!!

We are holding our annual Poppy Dinner on Saturday, May 13.  If you haven’t already purchased your tickets, please see any Auxiliary Board Member.  You can also purchase on the day of the dinner.  There will be live music and a 50/50 Raffle. 

 

SECOND VICE PRESIDENT

RACHEL RAYBURN

Thank you to all the volunteers that helped with the Easter Party, in my absence.  Aside from Christmas, this is one of my favorite events.  A BIG THANK YOU to Don Bynum for his donation of candy and basket fillers and to Evelyn Figueroa for her donation.  It’s donations like this and the support that make these events a success!! 

CHAPLAIN

SUZIE BAILEY

A reminder that we are donating bags with toiletries to the homeless veterans at Stand Down. PLEASE help by donating your left over unused hotel toiletries.

We also need new socks (men, women and children) small toys for the children (nothing that takes batteries). Playing cards for the adults. 

When I go to a hotel I contact the manager and let them know what we need them for and they usually will donate extra. Bring me their name and address I will send a thank you from Post 255.

Barbara Kelly had surgery and is in the convalescent home in Paradise hills on Banbury street. She would like visitors.

Sandra Kennedy a member of 29 years passed away in March. Thanks to everyone that brought food to her celebration of life.  

Condolences to Edna Moreno and her family in the loss of her husband David. He will be missed by everyone.

If you or anyone you know needs a card, a phone call or visit please call me.
