National Convention 2022
August 11 – 20th, 2022

Mid – Winter Conference 2023

Message from Our National President:

 

Greetings!  

                                                            Happy 4th of July!

 

             July 4th is a wonderful opportunity to show  “proud to be an American”!  To remember the sacrifices that keep us free to enjoy family and friends.

The Call to Convention Dates are August 15-19th.  Ships Store will be up and running in the afternoon on  Sunday the 14th opening time 1:00 P. M. Attached to this newsletter is the agenda. I look forward to seeing many of you at this convention. Your involvement is important.

  I just returned from the  Department of Pennsylvania Convention. It was a well run and an enjoyable event. A fun time was had by all. It was my honor to install the department officers including PNP Ruth S Moyse as Department President, who held the office of Department President 25 years ago. Congratulations to all the officers and members.

Please support the Operation Little Angel program. Donations will be given to the Beacon Center which is a domestic Violence project in Daytona Beach. The Auxiliary Operation Little Angel Committee continues to do a great job. Thank you ladies.

What drives those dedicated members to continue to serve? What is your purpose? Our success depends on the dedication of each member. Units that are thriving have things happening to keep members involved. A strong purpose and room for all members to choose what they can comfortably do needs to be in place. We can not as individuals do everything, but we can do something. Do what you can with joy!

Bring your ideas to the National Convention August 15-19th, share and be part of the great things that can happen.

Thank you for all you do to support the League and strengthen the Auxiliary. Please keep our Active Duty Service men and women, veterans, first responders in Prayer. Remember those members who are sick and/or distressed in your prayers.

My heart and prayers go out to those who have lost love ones and friends.

Semper Fidelis
