Hello Ladies!

We had a wonderful meeting last Wednesday!  I am so happy that we have such a
great group of Ladies who are always willing to help serve our Veterans!!

The trip to the Veterans Hospital for the bingo party was a success in spite of the
tornado warning that sent everyone into the safety of the hallway, according to
Sheila on Facebook.   Thanks April Killian for making the trip possible.  April is already
accepting money or donations for the next trip in 2016!

I am typing this letter from Allendale, Michigan, where I am taking care of my three
grandchildren.  My daughter, Auxiliary sister Ginger Burggren, is expecting twins
and is on total bedrest.  We are so very excited! Please excuse me if I miss
anything, I am without my computer and some of my notes.

I am happy to announce the results from our election this month:

Sr. Vice:           Darlene Andrzejewski
Jr. Vice:           Sue Toepfer

It was decided to drop our cancer insurance.  Do not confuse this with the cancer
grant that comes with the organization but an optional insurance we have been
paying for since 2007.  In the eight years we have had this insurance we have only
had one claim.  The cost was $446.49/year and paid for with our annual dues and
for the life members the $3.75 that is paid for yearly.  The payment by the life
members was hard to collect and 27% usually didn’t pay which was a cost to the
Auxiliary.  The extra savings will cover all quotas and result in a $40.00 savings!  
This can be picked up next year if it is voted back in.

Our “Community Days” fundraiser at Carson stores was very successful! LuAnne
DuVall worked at the store for 4 hours and with the other books sold ahead, and the
check from store profits we made close to $1,000!!

wonderful camp.
