Our September meeting is the first meeting of “The Auxiliary”, our new name. As of
August 21st 2015, as a result of changes made at the VFW National Convention, the
bylaws have been changed to include male spouses and family members to join the
Auxiliary. Males who wish to join will be required to fill out a membership application
and provide proof of eligibility and then be voted on by the auxiliary.
Kay Lynch, Veteran and family support chairman, is putting together a box to send
out to our servicemen and women. Please bring items you want to send to the next

candy if it isn’t chocolate, and microwave popcorn, to name a few ideas.
