VFW Auxiliary President’s Message
I hope everyone is doing well and staying healthy.
At our last meeting, we had the honor of presenting a $500.00 scholarship to
Cadet Briar Lee of the JROTC. He has graduated from Hudson High School and will
be joining the Air Force.
On May 15 th the auxiliary hosted a USO show featuring JJ Crum and the Almost
Andrew Sisters. What a great time we all had. With the money we earned from
food, raffles, and 50/50, we were able to present the Young Marines of The
Marine Corp League with a $1000.00 donation to help with uniforms, boots and
other miscellaneous items.
On June 12, the post will be hosting a mortgage burning party. They are looking
for volunteers to help with set up, side dishes, and clean up. Anyone interested in
volunteering, there will be a sign-up sheet on the bathroom door by the pool
table. As some of you already know, we keep track of your volunteer hours. When
you reach 100 volunteer hours, the Auxiliary will pay for your Life Time
Membership. If you are already a Life Time Member, you will receive $100.00.
There is no time limit on this.
The Auxiliary meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at
7:00pm. Dinner and social hour starts at 6:00pm. Hope to see you all there!
I would like to thank all of you who have volunteered your time, and those who
have participated and supported our events. We couldn’t do what we do without
Proudly Serving our Veterans
