Auxiliary President's Message

Brothers and Sisters,

Thank you so much to all our brothers and sisters who helped in our Hospitality Room this past June at the State Convention. Special thanks to Kim and Becky. Without you ladies, we would not have had a Hospitality Program at all. Thank you again and thanks to you all for bringing food for the occasion. Our joint picnic for the Aerie and Ladies Auxiliary will be held on August 15th at 2:00 pm. at the FOE 680. We need cakes for the cake walk and donations for the hidden bid raffle. August 16th we have Longaberger Basket Bingo sponsored by Donna Lane and Hope Fitzgerald; all proceeds go to the Children's Advocacy Center. We need cakes for Angelita's charity "Lew Reed Spinal Cord" on August 3rd. Ladies Auxiliary meeting for the month of August will be on the 5th and the 19th at 7:00pm. A volunteer for the Bingo concession every Monday is needed. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

From the Desk of Donna Lane

Brothers and Sisters,

Just a reminder there will be a Longaberger basket bingo for the Children's Advocacy Center, August 16, 2015 by Hope Fitzgerald. She will be in need of door prizes as many as possible, food items, hot dogs and buns, can drinks, baked goodies. She will need help with selling raffle tickets, etc. Players are needed more players more money for the charity. If you would like to sponsor a basket let her or Donna Lane know so we can have your name listed beside that item. You can call Donna Lane for pre-sale tickets a 540-221-4920 leave message. We are looking forward to seeing you there and your help supporting this event.

Auxiliary Secretary's Message

Hello my Sisters and Brothers:

I want to congratulate the hard working women in the 680 Auxiliary for their fantastic fund raising events this year. Overall, these ladies raised $22000 + to help all of our worthwhile charities. Some of the larger contributions are: CHKD - $1500+, Local Needs - $3000+, Local Cancer $1879, New Directions $2446, Grand Aerie Memorial fund - $816, Local Dialysis - $590 and many, many more. GOOD JOB LADIES.

In July, we welcomed to our organization Frances Truslow. Please welcome her.

We are looking forward to the joint Aerie and Auxiliary picnic. Look for information in other articles and on posters around the club.

We still have about a dozen members who need to pay their dues to keep from getting dropped. If you have received a post card reminder, please send your payment in by doing 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.

It is far easier to renew your dues than to be dropped and then have to re-enroll. You have to pay the $20 application fee when you fill out the application. Have your proposers speak for you at a meeting, be interviewed and then be voted on. Please renew as soon as possible.

Don’t forget to keep me updated with any changes to your name, address or phone number. I need that to keep communicating with you. I have to update the national data base known as MMS.

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
