  Message from the National President:

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.

 

Semper Fidelis,

 

Evelyn B Joppa
