Auxiliary Junior Past Worthy President's Message

Brothers and sisters,

Thanks for an awesome year. It really went by fast. A special thanks to Sandy Hale, who was such a great mentor to me. She made sure my newsletters got out on time and made sure I had concession workers at Bingo, even if she had to fill the spot herself. Thanks to my committees for your support with special events, membership, concession workers, by-laws, auxiliary charities and the money we raised to support Mary Pat Lane, State Madam President and our local area needs. A job well done. Sisters, continue coming to the meetings and becoming a mentor to the new members. Your job does not stop when you speak for them, it's just the beginning. Congratulations to Angelita Howe, our new Madam President and her slate of officers. I wish Angelita the best and ask that everyone support her in the coming year. Also congratulations to Becky Mohler, our Aerie 680 Women of the Year.See you at the Aerie.

Gloria Ewell

Auxiliary Treasurer's Message

Hello my Sisters and Brothers:

We are headed into summer. That means picnics, baseball, golf, camping, the beach, vacations, and all of those fun things. Be careful out there. Take care of you because nobody does it better!

On May 16, 680 hosted the spring the conference meeting. Things went real well and we had a good number of people in attendance. I want to share some-thing I observed and say a great big THANK YOU to three of our members. Most of the attendees for the meetings from all over the state had breakfast at the club. They sold raffle tickets and played pull tabs. All of this left quite a mess in the club room when they all went to either the Aerie or Auxiliary State Officers Meeting. Jean Hanger, Evie Shuey and Kenny Conner got up from their seats at the bar and cleaned up the entire club room. They cleaned tables, emptied ash trays, wiped off tables and cleared the coffee and Danish area that had been set up. When they were done, you could not tell there had ever been a crowd there. When the meetings were over and the attendees came out, they were greeted with a clean club and not the messy one that they left. We are a proud organization to have such members.

In May, we welcomed to our organization Debra Fox, Paula Moore, Terry Campbell, Helen Shuey, Darlene Burns, Patricia Flipping, Shirley Fix, Judy Harris, Tamera Campbell, Kitty Fretwell, Lori Johnson, Nell Critzer, Kellie Phipps, Dorothy Farren, Margaret Marshall, Angela Taylor, Teresa Cline, and Linda Huntley. When you see these ladies, welcome them with open arms and hearts.

Please check your dues receipts or membership cards. If the expiration date is May 31,2015 you need to pay your annual dues. It is so easy. Just do the following:

Write a check to Auxiliary 680 in the amount of $25.00
Mail it to me, Pauline Reese, at 2202 Bare St., Staunton, VA 24401.
Or leave it with the bar staff and I will pick it up.

Please remember, if you have moved or have a different phone number, please notify us so we can keep your records current. I need the information to update in the MMS system. The MMS system is the “master”. That information is part of the Grand Aerie/Auxiliary information system.

If you are aware of any member that is sick, please notify someone so we can take appropriate action.

Remember our military and our sick and shut-ins in your prayers.

Let’s continue to be “People Helping People”

Yours fraternally,
Pauline H Reese
