Happy New Year Ladies! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Thank you to Pat Smith for her great job as Auxiliary president. First, there are a couple of positions I would like to get filled. They are: Auxiliary Chaplain, who is responsible for saying the opening and closing prayers at the monthly meetings, the prayer at a wake for a member who passes, and for sending get well cards and/or flowers to auxiliary members who are sick. Second, is the Sergeant at Arms, who is responsible for checking membership cards at meetings, introducing any new members and escorting any disruptive members from the monthly meetings. Please be sure you have your current membership card when you attend the monthly meetings. An Event coordinator is also needed to schedule our monthly DJ’s as Linda Wilson can no longer do this. Thank you Linda for a great job scheduling the DJs! Please let me know if you are interested in any of these positions. I would like to fill them at the January 8th meeting.
We have some upcoming events that we will also need some auxiliary members to help out with. Ladies are needed to sell 50/50 tickets when we have a DJ scheduled. DJs are scheduled on the following nights: Jan 5th, Feb 2nd and March 2nd. Trivia nights are scheduled for Jan 16th, Feb 19th and March 19th. Bring your friends and join in on the fun and at the same time SUPPORT your auxiliary functions. March 17th is the annual St. Patrick’s Day party at the bar. I am looking for a few ladies to organize the party. I am also looking for ideas on fundraising for the Children’s Christmas Party and for the fundraising fund. ALL ideas welcome.
Please attend our monthly meetings, which are held on the second Monday of the month from September to June. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday Jan 8, 2018. Hope to see you there!
REMINDER: The Club code changes on January 1st. Please see the attending bartender for the new code. You must show your 2018 membership card to receive the new code.
Here’s to a great year ahead! Let’s remember we all became auxiliary members to honor American’s Veterans and to help the Veterans of Lansingburgh, and we all need to pitch in whenever we can, MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHTER WORK FOR ALL!!
