I have had the pleasure to receive a Custom Made Fishing Rod by Lawrence Brown of Richland, OR. He has made this especially for the VFW and with permission from National Headquarters the VFW Emblem has been embedded in the handle of the rod and an American Flag is applied to the top of the reel holder. This is a 6’ 1.5” ultra/medium weight rod. Line is 4 to 10 pound test line. Handel is Canary Wood (hand turned) and handle goes all the way through with Blue rod with Electric Blue Metallic thread.
You will be able to purchase Raffle tickets at all Schools of Instruction, Mid-Winter Conference and at Convention. The winning ticket will be drawn the Friday evening of State Convention. I will also be selling these tickets via the mail. The Raffle tickets are a single ticket. To purchase them through the mail please send check Made out to VFWA Rod Raffle and send to Debi Duggan, PO BOX 143, Richland, OR 97870 with the name, address and phone number and a copy of the filled out ticket will be mailed back to you and the original put in sealed box. Any questions please call me at 541-403-4331.
The VFW Auxiliary has been asked to help support our Veteran’s Service Officer for Oregon. Their funds are slim and our help is desperately needed. The following contest is being offered to ALL Auxiliaries in Oregon.
Make a Donation to help the VSO Office of Oregon by sending it to Sonya Sallee, Department Treasurer. She will give me a list of all Auxiliaries that donate and the names will be put in a container and the winner will be drawn at Mid-Winter Conference in January 2017. No amount is too small, every dollar helps. The winning Auxiliary will receive a $25.00 check. (Just a hint – donate it back to the VSO and challenge all Auxiliaries to match the amount between Mid-Winter conference and State Convention). There will be a second drawing at State Convention and the winner will also receive a check for $25.00 for their Auxiliary. Remember we are here to support ALL Veterans and this support is greatly appreciated.
