VFW AUXILIARY NEWS
Brothers and Sisters of our VFW Auxiliary:
Time just seems to fly by. Here we are already starting
to set up for this new 2018-19 year. The June convention was
a celebration of all the achievements accomplished this past year.
Our Auxiliary received several awards for; 1-Healthy VFW
Auxiliary, 2-Circle of Champions (membership), 3-Presidents
Special Project (guide Dogs) Bronze Award, 4-Patriotic
Instructor, Diana Matthews – Certificate of Honorable Mention.
It was also an honor to have had one contestant from our area
entered in our Patriotic Creative Art Contest.
The Appreciation Day for our Veterans & Families hosted by
the GFWC Hobe Sound Woman’s Club on 6/16/18 was attend
by many Veterans and their families and was a huge success!!
They did a beautiful job.
We will start collecting school supplies for our local Pinewood
Elementary School and perhaps a few others that could use our
assistance with supplies. Other activities will be starting soon;
the Scholarship programs, Thanksgiving Baskets and Angel
Tree Project, just to name a few.
Please join us at our next meeting 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm.
I hope ithe meeting will be well attended with lots of ideas and projects to
add to our commitment of working for and helping not only our
Veterans and their families but also our Community!
We are looking forward to working closely with our new VFW
Officers. United as One - working together - is the best way to
sum up the overall excitement of what came out of the June

P.S. May you all return safely from your adventures and bring fresh
new ideas to our next meeting.
