President Jeannine's Blog

Blog Post 10/08/2018:

Thank You all for attending the Fall District Meetings!!  I enjoyed meeting my Auxiliary sisters and the opportunity I had to visit with them.  I hope I can see many of you at the Gift Shops, Christmas Parties and later at the Mid-Winter Conference in Spearfish.

November 10th is the Auxiliary Birthday do something special at your Unit meeting because you belong to the largest Patriotic women’s organization in the world. 

Then November 11th is Veterans Day don’t forget to say Thank You to those men and women who fought for our freedom.  We owe an enormous debt to the Veterans of this Nation.  The debt is only payable in respect, honor and remembrance.  The October mailing will be coming out soon, Plans of Action are part of this huge mailing.  Be sure and share the information with your members.

 

In the Spirit of Good Will!!
