FROM THE COMMANDER …
This is my last message to the membership. The last 2 years have been interesting with trying to run the club and my health issues. I thank all who prayed for me.
The next two months will be the start of our fundraising with brat barns. The first one is on May 26th and we will need help with it.
We will be doing a spring clean up in the building for which we will need people to help. The exact date will be determined at the May business meeting.
Nothing this Newsletter.
Poppy Program: First, I want to thank all who came out for stuffing the envelopes for the poppy mailing and to all who have sent us their donations. We have secured the following stores for May 12 and 13 from 8 am to 5 pm: Festival-DePere, Festival-University Av, Menlo (Pick &Save) on Lombardi Av, and Woodman’s. There are plenty of openings available at the listed stores. Traditionally we have done poppies on one weekend, but we may schedule another weekend in summer or fall at Festival-East. The Poppy Drive is one of the biggest fundraisers for both the Legion and Auxiliary. All proceeds go to our local veteran program, Camp American Legion, and VA homes that serve Wisconsin veterans. Those who have signed up may pick up their poppies at the meeting before distribution on Friday and Saturday.
Reminders: The Auxiliary has monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of the month at the Post. I’d like to encourage all members to attend.
The Auxiliary needs volunteers to help with luncheon and with placing flags at Allouez Cemetery. Our unit will be participating in the wreath ceremony on Memorial Day at 3:30 pm at Admiral Flatley Park. At the ceremony, we need two volunteers to carry flags. All members are welcome to attend.
A proposal was made by a member to change some language of the Post Constitution and By Laws. The changes are related to the number of people on the executive board, method of notifying members of future votes, and some minor changes in wording. This will be considered notification to all members that the vote on these proposed changes will take place at the June 13 business meeting which starts at 7pm. Copies of the changes will be available at the May 9th business meeting and the June 13th business meeting.
June 13, at the business meeting, will also be the election date for Post 11 officers. Nominations will be accepted at the business meetings in May and June.
Post 11's Auxiliary was chartered in June of 1921.
In the spirit of Service, Not Self, the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support The American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad. For God and Country, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace and security.
