Auxiliary Members,
Happy New Year!
I trust you and your families had a blessed holiday season. Here’s wishing you much love, health, happiness and peace as we begin 2016. First on the agenda, I want to thank Kelli Arison and the entire Golf Committee for their generous donation made to our Auxiliary for our small part we played in the golf outing in Sept. The money will be used to support our veterans.

Our Pig Roast fundraiser was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who participated and worked hard to make it a memorable event. The goal was to bring the Post, Canteen, and the Auxiliary together and that was accomplished. Thank you.

We recently had a tree trimming party at Friendship Village for the residents. It was well received and we came away feeling the holiday spirit. Afterwards, we had an Auxiliary gift exchange get together. Everyone seemed to enjoy the evening.

A big thank you to Sandy Roberto and Diane Keremes for taking charge and making and distributing blankets and lap robes to the VA Hospital in Oakland. We also enclosed a monetary donation.

On Sat, 12 Dec, we hosted the kids Christmas party at the Canteen. What fun! The children loved the talking and singing with Santa, Mrs Claus, and the elves. Jeanne DelBusso did face painting on the children and made beautiful ornaments for each child. Thank you. Jeanne, you are truly awesome! Check it out on the Post web page: www.vfw764.org

Sandy Coglio and I will be attending the Mid Winter Conference in Gettysburg in late Jan. There will be a lot of workshops including a question and answer period. If anyone has an concerns or issues to be discussed, please jot your questions down and give it to me at our 13 Jan regular meeting. Please remember your contribution item for our coffee themed basket that we will be making to take to the conference as our donation to the cancer table. Thank you.

We will be making a visit this spring to the Ronald McDonald House and we plan an event at the Fisher House. Details to follow.

Our Auxiliary Christmas tree is still decorating the Post entry way by the front door with mittens, scarves, hats, socks, etc. These items are very much appreciated and will be given to the Womens Shelter in Washington.

Thank you for your continued support of our Auxiliary and the reasons why we exist.

Loyally,
Donna Auyer, Auxiliary President
