President Jeannine's  June Blog

As my year comes to an end, I want to thank all my Department Chairman, Hospital Reps, Deputy Reps, Gift Shop Chairman, Christmas Party Chairman, and Department Officers for the great job this year.

Laurel did a great job in keeping the office running smooth, and answers everyone’s questions.  I have enjoyed reading the great year end reports that the District Presidents prepared.  The number of hours, money donated to programs and projects are great and makes me proud to be a member of the “Largest Women’s Patriotic Organization in the World”.  I will be at Girls State May 27- June 1.  I look forward to seeing these young ladies step out of their comfort zones and make new lifelong friends.  Membership has been a Challenge, Lynn Pohlman has done a great job this year encouraging renew and rejoin.  Thank You!!

I hope to see all of you at State Convention June 6-8, 2019 at the Sheraton Hotel in Sioux Falls.  At the Saturday Luncheon Erin Bultje will speak on “Homeless Female Veterans” On Saturday Department Chairman will give a 3-minute report on the accomplishments of their Chairmanship.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their cards of support, get well, and especially Prayer as I battled cancer.  On June 17th I will get a stem cell transplant at Avera in Sioux Falls.  I feel great and hope the rest continues.  I am confident it will!  Thanks for all you’ve did this year.
