Presidents Message April  2019

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

 

It is getting toward to end of the year, and I know you all have worked so hard for our veterans and their families and our communities.   I am so proud of each one of you please keep the great work up.

 

If we work on commitment, teamwork and devotion on all levels to improve our lives and our organization, as we serve more from the heart.  Be more positive and less judgmental.  Work together to get more accomplished and make Oregon the best State we can.

 

Don’t forget to send your monthly reports to our Program Coordinator Paula Espeland.  Remember our auxiliaries will not have a year end report to fill out this year.  That is why it is so important to send in your monthly reports to the Program Coordinator.   Your monthly reports will help determine what place your auxiliary will end up at the end of the year at Department convention so get those reports sent in.

 

Elections are this month so make sure who you vote in the position understands importance of the office.  Have fun with it all, remember we are here for our Veterans and their Families let’s not let them down.

 

We are so close to being 100% in membership as of today we need 59 members to make our goal.  Besides we can’t let the VFW be 100% by themselves can we.

 

Keep on recruiting and retaining members, we are all most there and I know we can do it if we all reach for that goal of 100 % + in membership.  BELIEVE WE CAN DO IT BELIEVE IN OURSELVES.

 

Hope to see a lot of you at the National Presidents visit information is on the web-site. VFW Auxiliary National President Sandi Kriebel will be coming to our state on April 27, 2019 and leaving April 29, 2019.  We will be out visiting District 6 and 8 area since we haven’t been on that side of the in a long time.  So, put those dates on your calendar and come meet the VFW National President Sandi Kriebel and ask her your questions that’s what she is here for.

 

Remember I am here for you and if you need me don’t hesitate to call or email me.

 

Riding for our Veterans all things are possible for those who Believe.

 

Loyally,

Catherine Lindsay

Department President
