President’s Message July 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I am so excited to begin our new year. I hope that you are too. Let’s get going and hit the ground running. I hope you have already started working on your programs.


Please let us know if you need any help with anything. Don’t forget to get out in your communities and let them know we are here to help or veterans and families in any way.


Please lets us know if you are having any special events so we may come if possible. Please send your photos and events to Debbie Wright so she can get them added to the website and Facebook. Don’t forget to report to your chairmen all you do. Report often so you don’t forget what you have done.


Please don’t forget to get out and recruit new members.  We want to keep growing, and unfortunately, we have not been doing that lately. Recruit younger members and help them to become a great volunteer for our Veterans.


Most of all please remember to have fun, work hard, and “Soar to new heights through volunteering” I am so proud of each and every one of you for all the work you do. Don’t forget we are here for you anytime just let us know. Thank you for allowing me to be your President this coming year. I hope I make you as proud, as you all make me to say I belong to the greatest department in the United States.


Loyally yours

Paula Espeland

The Oregon VFW Auxiliary was founded for the soul purpose of serving those who have protected our country and see that they are protected in return. How do we achieve this goal?

      1. By reaching out with help in communities across America.
      2. Offering innovative programs
      3. Standing up for veterans rights in Washington, D.C.

We can’t do this without your generosity. Please consider a tax deductible donation to your Oregon VFW Aux.
