Auxiliary President's Message

Brothers and Sisters,

How do you like this very cold weather we're having? I don't like it at all. A lot of our Aerie friends have been coming down with the flu bug. If you are sick or know someone who is ill or deceased, please call Sandy Hale at 540-886-6423 or Sharon Back at 540-248-1938.

Our February meetings are on Wednesdays, the 4th and 18th, at 7pm.

Our Valentines dance and dinner is on Saturday, February 14th, at 6pm. - $20.00 per couple, $10.00 single (by reservation only). Please call Lois Snell at 540-949-8132 or Hope Fitzgerald at 540-886-9834; CUT OFF DATE FOR RESERVATIONS IS FEBRUARY 7TH.

Mary Pat Lane will be having a cake raffle at bingo on Monday, February 2nd for her charity, Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters. Your support is always appreciated. Concession workers are also needed every Monday at Bingo. Training will be provided.

I would like to send an apology to Hope Fitzgerald for not mentioning her in last month's newsletter for the wonderful dinner she cooked for our Auxiliary Christmas party. It was delicious - great job, Hope! Until next month, bundle up and stay warm.

Auxiliary Secretary's Message

Hello my Sisters and Brothers:

Well it’s February already. The month of the heart and love, when cupid shoots his arrows. We have a couple of great events coming up. On is our special Valentines Dance will be held on Valentine’s Day, February 14. You will need to make reservations for this event. Please contact Lois Snell at 540-949-8132.

There is also a fund raiser in the works for our members who have lost their home to fire.

There has been a question about how to show you are a member. The ONLY proof of membership for any auxiliary member is her dues receipt, properly signed and showing a date that is not past. The receipt that is given to you when you fill out an application is not proof of membership. You are not a valid member until you have been interviewed, voted on favorably by the membership, paid your dues and, if a new member, have been initiated. Re-enrollment and transfer members do not have to be initiated unless they want to be.

I have sent the delinquent notices to our members who have not paid their dues that are to be paid by November 30, 2014. If you have received your post card showing you are delinquent, please send them to me at 2202 Bare St., Staunton, VA 24401 or pay at the club as soon as you can. We want to keep all of our valuable members.

Also 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. Hope Fitzgerald also needs it to be sure that you get your newsletter to keep up with our activities at #680.

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 ,
