Fellow Auxiliary Members,
I am so excited and humbled to have been elected your 2016-2017 Department of Connecticut President of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary. I am looking forward to bringing a higher awareness of our VFW Auxiliary Programs to our members.
I would also like to spread the news of the VFW Auxiliary to the public for more membership possibilities, especially with the addition of our male members. This is the greatest veteran organization and I want to see it grow. I believe with all of our help we can obtain that goal.
My symbol is a dragonfly, which symbolizes “Live Life Without Regret” my motto. Let us strive to spread the news of the VFW and its Auxiliary. Mentor. Volunteer.
Let’s spread the excitement. If we show everyone how much this organization means to us the excitement will be contagious. People will want to join. I truly believe this.
Let us communicate with each other. We all want to know what each other is doing to bring awareness to us. Let’s join and support each other’s efforts. Share your ideas. Help each other maintain and grow. Support each other. Reach out. We are a family.
Watch the website for your District meetings and Quarterly Department meetings. Attend them. Bring a fellow member, a new member. This is where you will receive the information you will need to stay informed and keep other members informed.
I hope to see as many of you as possible this year in my travels. Let me know where to come and I will do my best to be there.
