The Auxiliary’s Corner—Valerie Ehlers

September is almost over now, and we are looking forward to October. Our October meeting will be on the 14th, at the usual time at the Senior Center.

Ladies, now is the time to pay your 2012 dues AND to recruit, recruit, recruit. The National Dues will be increasing by $1.50 on January 1, 2012. Save yourselves and your recruits a little money!

The first weekend in November (on the 4th and 5th) we will be having a Buddy Poppy campaign, I hope I can count on several of you to work a four hour shift at the Top Foods in Shoreline on either Friday or Saturday. It is always best to have 2 or more people working a shift together so you can give each other a “break” from the table once in a while. Sign-up sheets will be at the October meeting. It can be FUN, why don’t you give it a try?

Since the Senior Center will be closed on Veterans’ Day (Friday, November 11), the Auxiliary members decided at the September meeting that we would go along with whatever the Post was going to do so…we’ll see you at the American Legion Post that day. The Post will be supplying our food that day also. There is a small room available for us to have our meeting. Thank you members of the Post for thinking of us in you’re planning!
