Greetings Auxiliary Members!
Convention Reports are coming in as I write this article. It is encouraging to see
what has been accomplished this year.
We may not have our National Convention; however, there are may things
happening behind the scenes to keep our members informed. Reports will be
on the website as of August 9th and remain on the site until October 1st. You
can download or print these reports to share with members who do not have
access to the website.
The Board is working on replacing the National Secretary. Karen Grady has
done a great job for us over the last four years. This is not an easy task. The
new person coming into this position will have an easier time getting
orientated into the job because of the efficiency of our current secretary.
The year 2019-2020 ended June 30th, audit has been completed, and the new
year's books are already in progress. One of the busiest times of the year for
the office is coming soon, the processing of transmittals for each unit. Pray we
find the right person for this important job.
Due to many factors the new units, unveiled at Mid-Winter, have been delayed
in completing their paperwork to be an official Unit. The Holy City Unit, South
Carolina, is now up and running. Welcome aboard ladies! The Foothills Unit,
North Carolina & the Lewis & Clark Leathernecks Unit, South Dakota final
paperwork has been sent to National Headquarters. Initiation and Installation of
Officers should happen soon. Each of these units will be a super addition to the
already hard-working units across the nation.
We have lost many of our valued members this past year who have gained
their higher award! Many of our members need prayers and cards. Thanks to
all who continue to make those calls & send cards. PNP Barb Nobile does a
super job of keeping us informed.
Help the Auxiliary shine and stay informed. If your unit is doing various great
things, take pictures, write an article, and send to MCLA-Newsletters@nationalmcla.org.
