President Ruth Hewston
Ruth Hewston

It is my pleasure to accept the challenge the VFW Department of Connecticut Ladies Auxiliary has bestowed on me as their President.  I would like to congratulate our State Commander, Robert Froelick and his elected and appointed officers and ensure him that he has the complete support of the Ladies Auxiliary and it will be our pleasure to serve with him and his team.

My symbol is the butterfly, and my theme is “Helping Transform Veterans Lives”.  The caterpillar is transformed into a beautiful butterfly showing how lives can be changed by the work of many.

The Ladies Auxiliary, the VFW and the Men’s Auxiliary should continue to work together to make a difference within the organization.  The VFW and its Auxiliaries are all Veterans and Supporters of Veterans working to make a difference in the lives of our active service members, all Veterans and their families.

It is paramount to our mission that as we work together, we find a way to retain, reinstate and recruit new members.  As our members begin to age, we need to look at the younger Veterans and members of our auxiliaries to continue in the leadership positions of our organizations.

We must make a firm commitment to engage all members, so we can continue to serve and help our Veterans and our Communities.
I am looking forward to working with Commander Bob and his slate of officers, and I’m sure we are going to have a great year to continue and expand on all that we do.
Ruth Hewston,
State President
