Hello Members,                                    December, 2015

We were supposed to have our inspection at the meeting but our district president
Heather Sheppard was unable to come due to an illness in the family, so we are
shooting for a January inspection.

We are now 100% in membership!  Thanks to those for getting their dues in
promptly and all the new members this year so far. We still need 4 more and we will
have everyone’s 2016 dues collected.

                  Our Chairpersons:
Americanism-Mary Joly

Camp Trotter-Lorissa Elinski        Scholarships-Grace Connolly

Hospital-April Killian                Veterans and Family Support-Kay Lynch

Legislative-Dawn Shock                Youth Activities-Darlene Adrzgiewski

Membership-Sharon Grodi

If you have something to report these are the people you need to contact.  There
was an email sent out with email addresses for those who have the internet and can
report that way.  If you do not have the internet please call me for the phone
numbers of the chairman.  Many things are reported in multiple committees.

I usually send a letter reporting what is happening at the meeting, but have decided
to focus more on what is going on at the post in this letter.

Our new web site for the Department is www.vfwauxmi.org
The web site for our post is www.erievfw.com

The calendar on our Post’s web site has a calendar that shows what is going on at
post and dates that the hall is rented.

Please come to the meetings!  There is so much happening that it is hard to put it all
down on this one page.  If you need a ride, give me a call and it will be arranged.
The most exciting time at our meeting this month was all the donations brought in by
Kathy Judy and her angels.  The donations are for our servicemen serving overseas
and those in the hospital.  In January’s newsletter I will compile a list of all the
donations and fun we have had in the past year.  I hope everyone has a wonderful
holiday!
