MEN’S AUXILIARY MONTHLY NEWSLETTER
Men’s Auxiliary Members,
11 members were present for our June meeting, the final one conducted by
outgoing President John Conley. John was thanked by the membership for his
dedicated work during the last 2 years as President. If able, please make an
attempt to occasionally attend the meetings as your input is valued and we
appreciate any new ideas and suggestions.
We were pleased to have two guest speakers, outgoing Post Commander, Ed
Weaver and the new (and former) Post Commander, Mike Santure. Ed graciously
spoke of his appreciation for the Men’s Auxiliary support for various Post functions

his leadership throughout the year. Mike touched on the keeping the lines of
communication open between the Post and Auxiliary members as well as discussing
Kennedy Room decorum, proper scheduling of events and the expectation of a
rewarding year at the Post. Both were thanked by the members for their service.
