Some Reminders for Members

Members are urged to report service time for the Post’s monthly report. To do so, log in at VFW Department of WA website (https://vfwwa.org/di/vfw/v2/default.asp) and click on “Program Reporting”. Just fill in the form.

Members are asked to encourage family members to join and participate in The Post Auxiliary. The Auxiliary’s purpose is to support to activities of the Post, including social/community events and fund raising activities.

May 4 is to be the third annual National VFW Day of Service. We are looking for suggestions for our local project. (Last year we did a beach clean up) If you are aware of a worthwhile community need in the Edmonds area that would benefit from a day’s work by a group of VFW volunteers, please contact Commander Bowman.

P. S. Just a reminder, “Buddy’® Poppy, recruiting and other events which raise monetary donations
do not qualify as a Day of Service event.

Post Auxiliary Activities

Our fine Post 8870 Auxiliary unit has been busy this fall and holiday season.

They participated in our semi-annual poppy drive with their own distribution point at the the Edmonds Waterfront Center. Patsy Ethridge-Neal is shown at right staffing that poppy location.

Our Auxiliary also participated in the 2023 Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest. The annual contest began in 1979 and recognizes up-and-coming artists and encourages patriotism in youth. More than 2,500 students submitted entries and a total of $33,000 in national scholarships were awarded to 13 students in 2023.

And, of course Jo Boyett (shown at left) was on hand to help with set up and decorate for our annual Christmas party.

Keep up the good work, Auxiliary!
