District 14 VFW Auxiliary President Monthly Comments
November 1, 2020
Dear Auxiliary Presidents, Sisters and Brothers,
November is upon us already and soon we’ll be in the Holiday Season. Thank you to everyone for sharing your precious time with us so we can make a difference for our servicepeople, our veterans, and their families. We couldn’t do it without you! Don’t forget to REPORT!
October 23rd and 24th found District 14 participing in Operation Stand Down – Central Texas (OSDCT), held at the Killeen Event Center. This was a first-time event for some as we learned about and volunteered to assist with the difficulties of the homeless in Central Texas, many of whom are veterans. OSDCT just completed their seventh year Their focus is on bringing groups and resources together to help the homeless at events normally held twice each year. A huge thank you goes out to Gail Stern, Kempner Auxiliary President, for making us aware of this effort. Thanks also to everyone that participated! We look forward to doing it again in the spring.
