Auxiliary President's Message

Brothers and Sisters,

Is everyone sick of this cold weather yet? I sure am and we still have at least another month before it's all gone. Congratulations to Dot Clayton, who is our State Grandmother for 2015. Thanks to Lois Snell for selling the tickets for our Valentine's Dinner and Dance, Victor Snell for cooking our dinner and members of her committee for their support. Job well done. We made $775.00 for Ken Hale's charity (Hospice of the Shenandoah) and $775.00 for my charity (Local Cancer Center). Thanks to all who came out and donated.

I would also like to thank everyone who participated in the benefit for Hope and Mike Fitzgerald on Sunday, February 15. We collected over $6000.00 for Hope and Mike. Great job, Aeries 680 and 4129. We had a great turnout even with the bad weather.

Mary Pat Lane, our State President, will be having a cake raffle at Bingo on Monday, March 2nd for her charity, The Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters.

Sharon Back had the cake raffle for February 2, and collected $201.00 for her charity, New Directions. Thanks for the baked goods donated by our members - keep up the good work.

Our next meetings will be on Wednesday, March 4th and March 18th at 7PM. Hope to see you there if weather permits.

Gloria Ewell


Auxiliary Secretary's Message

Hello my Sisters and Brothers:

Spring can’t here soon enough for me. Boy has it been a bitter February.

We still have a few of you out there who have not paid your dues. If they are not paid by March 15, you will be dropped from the roll and will no longer be a member. You are delinquent now, but if you pay your dues before then, your membership will continue with no disruption. If you are dropped, you will have to go thru the application process, which means a $20 application fee. You will need two proposers with one of them attending a meeting to speak for you. You will have to be interviewed and voted on. It would be so much simpler just to pay your dues. This is a great organization and we need all of our members.

If you are delinquent, please write a check for $25 made out to Auxiliary 680 and send to Pauline Reese, 2202 Bare St., Staunton, VA 24401.

I attended the state conference meeting in Collinsville in February. It was a great time, especially the honoring of the State Grandmother, our own Dot Clayton. We love you Grandmother.

We welcome to our Auxiliary Susan Mowery, a transfer from New Market. She and her family have relocated to Staunton. We also initiated the following in January: Cindy Purdue, Ruth Edwards, Donna Davis, Jennifer Clifton and Donna Cook.

And as always, 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,
