Auxiliary President's Message
Brothers and Sisters,
Hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend. I think the fall is really setting in...
It was sad that we had to cancel Fun Day because of the weather. I want to thank all that came out to help. Sandy and Ken Hale, Kitty and Jim Knisley, Joe Simmons, Farmer, Cody, Jim Henderson, Buster Shaner, Sharon Back, Donna Lane and Steve Cash. Ladies, the cakes that you baked and other goodies that were brought in didn't go to waste, we raffled them off at Bingo on Monday and we took in $158.00 for local needs. Sometimes our sick ones can't get out and are in need of groceries or bills that need paying, and or medicine that they can't afford, so its really a good cause. Thank you ladies for your support. Please, if anyone is sick or if you know someone that is sick or in need of help in any way, call Sandy Hale at 540-886-6423 or Sharon Back at 540-248-1938...

Our next Auxiliary meeting is on October 1st, Wednesday, at 7pm. Would love to see you then...
Fall is definitely in the air. These cool crisp mornings are glorious.
I am sorry to report that we lost 13 sisters from our May 31, 2014 dues cut off. Our next date is November 30, 2014. Please be checking your dues receipts for the date. You can pay them early and still be paid thru November 30, 2015. Also watch the mail for reminders.
I want to explain the process of membership. Please use this to share with those who are looking to join so that they understand the process fully. It is also a good reminder for all of us.
- After you have been spoken for, the application is turned over to the membership committee. You will be called by someone on the committee to schedule your interview with them. This is typically done on the 1st Wednesday of the month. After the interview, you will be voted on by the membership.
- After the vote, you will be notified by mail as to the outcome. If accepted, you will be given the date, time and membership fee. The fee may be prorated to keep the May and November time frames. The initiation is normally done at the 3rd Wednesday meeting. You will need to pay your dues before the meeting starts. After initiation, you are our sister and we welcome you. Please note that re-enrollment and transfer members do not have to be initiated unless you want to be reminded of our purpose through this deeply moving ritual.
- Please keep a copy of this information to pass on to someone who is interested in joining so you can explain the process to them.
Remember our military and our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.
Let’s continue to be “People Helping People” ,
