 District14 VFW Auxiliary President Monthly Comments

   May 1, 2021

Greetings Brothers and Sisters,

April promised to be a busy month and indeed it was! We had entries in the Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest, the Illustrating America art contest, and the Get Excited for the Red, White and Blue singing contest. Congratulations to the winners of these Scholarship and Youth competitions!

Auxiliary reporting is completed for the year. Thank you to all of you that turned in reports on your activities. A whole lot of work has been done by District 14 in support of our veterans!

The District Auxiliary Convention, held at Bell VFW Post 1820 in Temple was a resounding success all around. Thank you all so much for your support of the cake auction! Over $800 was raised for District 14 Auxiliary programs. Thank you too for your participation in the raffle to support Karen Kaylor’s Homecoming.
