Spring has sprung!!!
We are moving into times where things are opening to more or less normal activity.
The safety of our members must come first. Keep this in mind as you plan your
spring fundraisers. You are all resourceful! Think outside the box; give those new
ideas a chance to be successful. Share your success! The public sees the value of
what we do as we promote activities to help our active duty personnel and veterans.
Please wear your Auxiliary shirts to spark interest and the opportunity to recruit.
I spent the better part of the first week of March at MCLA National Headquarters
assisting our National Secretary Ramona Smith to prepare documents from the
Mid-Winter Zoom Conference. Mideast Division Vice President Doris Bujanowski
and her Marine spent Tuesday helping and treated us to lunch,
In March I was honored to install the new officers for two Florida Units: Morris Dixon
and Spring Hill.
On March 19th, I checked in on the zoom connection for the Central Division
Conference for the most impressive Workshop "How do you Dip your Toes into
Social Media" by Elizabeth LaPouttre. We also viewed the Department of
Michigan's "Roses" video, again an outstanding job, bringing tears for the tribute
to our Veterans. It was an honor to receive an invitation to this part of the
The Department of Florida Spring Conference will be my next trip. Then off to the
Department of Colorado Convention. These are treasured opportunities giving the
National President an opportunity to meet more of our dedicated members and
see the wonderful work the Auxiliaries are doing.
The New Port Richey VA Clinic has invited several volunteers back. It is wonderful
to be back helping our veterans in this capacity.
Please keep those effected by the recent devastating tornadoes in your prayers.
