Every $1.00 donation helps
to defray the shipping cost ($16.75 per box) and helps
to buy needed items in addition to donated items.
Suggestions for a phrase to spell out are welcome.
Give your suggestion to Jim Friel or Tim Schenck
(Pappy).
Renewal notices have been sent out by National. Renew early and help us achieve our goals this year. We
missed them last year, do your part so we don’t miss
them two years in a row.
ticularly those in need – help them if you can. Keep
our active duty service men and women in your

The Auxiliary monthly meeting will be starting back
up in September. We usually meet on the first Thursday of each month starting @ 6pm. This year we decided since the first Thursday is September 1st, starting the Labor Day weekend, that it would be best to
have our meeting for this one time on the second
Thursday, September 8th @ 6pm. Please join us on
the 8th!
Live The Auxiliary Motto- “Service not Self!”
