Auxiliary President's Message

Brothers and Sisters,

Gee, another month has come and gone. Summer is almost over and the kids are back to school. Our Labor Day Cash Bash is coming up on Sunday, August 31st. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, you better hurry. See a bartender to purchase a $25.00 ticket, that's good for two.

I would personally like to thank everyone who came to attend our Annual Membership picnic on August 13th. A special thanks to Sandy Hale, Anita Moore and Donna Lane for setting up everything and coming up with new games. Great job!

Our Aerie Fun Day is on Saturday, September 13th, come support your Presidents' charities: Ken's is the Hospice of the Shenandoah and mine is the Local Cancer Fund. There will be food cooked from the grill and games to play outside and a cake walk inside for which we will need cakes. Thanks again for your support.

Tuesday, September 30th at 6pm is our next Joint Officers meeting.

On Sunday, September 21st, Donna Lane will be having a Longaberger basket, a 31 Tote/Handbag and a Scencsy tool bingo. It will go to the Verona Community Association for sports equipment for the Little League ball team. Doors will open at 1pm and bingo will start at 2 pm. The Auxiliary will be having a Hide and Bid Auction at 6pm on Saturday, October 11th. Bring a covered dish and an item for the auction. See the bulletin board for more details.

Mary Pat Lane and Kim Botkin are having the annual Halloween Party on Sunday, October 19th. The party will start at 5pm for our membership and 6pm-8pm for the special needs people.

Cheryl Hill has cakes at bingo on Monday, September 1st. Again we need goodies for her charity, Alzheimers. And thank you ladies that help faithfully with the concession.

Report members who are sick or in the hospital to Sandy Hale, 540-886-6423 or Sharon Back, 540-248-1938. If we don't get the word we can't help. Our next auxiliary meeting will be on Wednesday, September 3rd. Hopefully, I'll see you.

Love ya,
Gloria Ewell

Yes, this is the day of the State Golf Tournament in New Market but, please come and support this event. Bring a covered dish and item or items for the auction. We will have a 50/50 and some other raffles. This is one of the functions were have to help pay for the food for the baskets and we usually help out between 25-30 families. If you would like to help and get involved contact Nikki Moneymaker, Joyce Greaver or Donna Lane. We will have a covered dish supper starting at 6 pm and then followed by the hidden bid and I am sure that Leonard Shover will be the auctioneer for the night. Come out and enjoy the fellowship and also helping those that need help.

Gary Lane would like to thank everyone for the prayers and cards. Have a great Labor day and get your tickets for the Cash Bash from Sandy Puff.

Secretary's Message

Hello Sisters

Fall is quickly approaching and sooner than you think the mountains will be alive with those beautiful red, orange, yellow and brown colors. We live in the area where the peak of the fall colors take your breath away..

We are looking for someone to take the lead on the Christmas parade float. It is not too soon to be looking into that. If you are willing to take on this project, please con-tact Mary Pat Lane, who has done this for several years. However as our State Madam President, Mary Pat does not have the kind of time she did in previous years.

We are working hard on trying to prevent dropping any members due to non-payment of dues. We still have several out and have tried contacting by phone. Many phone numbers have changed and we do not have your new contact information. Here is the list of members that will be dropped if your dues are not paid by September 15, 2014.

Mary V. Alamarode
Juanita F. Colvin
Linda S. Deshano

Phyllis J. Hudlow
Angela Humphries
Heather C. Jack
Yana A. Kerschke
Lynn T. Kimble

Pauline Reese

Staunton, VA. 24401

OR take it to the club room and pay one of the bartenders. They will make sure I get it.
Also, we need to remind all of you that if you change your phone number or address, or even your name, we need notification so we can keep our records current. Send to me at the address above or leave a note with the bartenders to give to me. Also, you may email me at reesepolly@comcast.net with the information.

Our hearts and prayers are with several of our members who are suffering from many health issues. Please keep all of them in your prayers.

And remember, I am here to help. If I don’t have the correct answer, I will do my best to find it.

Yours fraternally,
Pauline H Reese
