Great job, Mary Pat Lane and Hope Fitzgerald, Energizer rabbit mascot at State Conference Spotsylvania #4391.

Secretary's Message

Greetings my Sisters and Brothers,

Some people do not care for the holiday season, but I love it. To know that our savior was born and is the reason for the season is enough to put a bundle of joy in my heart. I wish all of you the merriest of Christmases and a joyful New Year!

LADIES - Please CHECK YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD – or Dues receipt as it is officially known. If the expiration date is November 30, 2014 please pay as soon as possible. Please send a check to Auxiliary 680 in the amount of $25 to me or pay at the bar. They will be sure that I get it. My address is:

Pauline Reese
2202 Bare St
Staunton, VA. 24401

I have received quite a few payments but there are more to go. I will be sending post cards to those who have not paid by November 31, 2014.

If you missed the visit of the Grand Madam President, Gloria Mason, you missed a great meal and a great time. Victor was victorious as usual with a wonderful meal. Madam Gloria is a “farm girl” that even helped with clean up at the end. She was a delight to meet. I think with our generous contribution to her charity and our “meet and greet” she did see how special Aerie and Auxiliary 680 are.

Ladies, don’t forget our Christmas celebration on December 17. Bring a covered dish or dessert to add to our meal. If you want to participate in the Chinese Christmas bring a $10 gift. If you are a secret sister, don’t forget her and last, but not least, remember we will honor our Mother, Angela Hunter, on that night. It is always a treat. Just let one of the officers know if you are coming so we can get a good head count for the meal.

We heartily welcome these new members to our organization, Jacqueline Barker, Terry Biby, Kelly Gormus and Julie Wells.

If you are aware of any member that is sick, please notify someone so we can take appropriate action. Also if you have moved or have a different phone number, please notify us so we can keep your records current.

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
