Hello Members,

Our meeting in February was well attended in spite of the cold weather.

Kay Lynch, Chairman of Veterans and Family Support will need some help with her
committee in May for the Buddy Poppy Campaign.  I am not sure of the days yet but
we will work the same day as the Post Veterans work.  You may have heard that
Jim, her husband, is not feeling well and Kay has her hands full!  Please send her
your prayers.

We received our new Charter with “Auxiliary” on it and dropping the “Ladies” in our
title.  Thanks to LuAnne we have a new frame too, it looks really nice.  Thanks again
LuAnne for all the work you have done and continue to do with this big change.

Community Days with Carson Stores will be February 26th and 27th.    I will need
people to work and sell the coupon booklets.  We do make quite a bit of money at
this fundraiser and I will be out of town so really need volunteers.

Recognition Dinner is coming up on April 9th of this year.  This dinner honors the
winners of the Voice of Democracy, Patriots Pen, Patriotic Art and the Teacher of
the year.  Please call Grace Connolly if you can help out with this wonderful
community project.  We will have a meeting for this dinner at 6:30 before our
regular meeting next month.

Anyone interested in receiving their member year pin please contact Sharon Grodi
(734) 848-4893.

We will be having elections at the April meeting.  Please think of any offices or
committees you would like to work on.  It would be nice to have some new people
on these committees for the breath of fresh air that our new auxiliary needs.

Please note that at our meetings your kids are welcome!!!!  We have a large enough
area to accommodate the children.  We would love to have some of our younger
members show up and bring the kids!! At the district meeting this month there were
a few children and it was quite enjoyable.  They played a piano to spice things up a
bit.

We have scarfs available for $3.00.  I am not sure what the guys are going to use.  
What do you think Richard Russell?
