We welcome all females to join us in our efforts to support our military and our community. Below is just a sample of the activities we have had in the past year. We take great pride in our accomplishments and hope to do even better next year. Our meetings are held at the post on the second Tuesday of the month, starting at 4:00 p.m. Please consider joining us.
We are working on several fundraisers. Coming up on November 3rd is the Legion Golf Outing. This event raises money to help veterans attend college. The Outing will be at Capri Isle Golf Course in Venice. There will be a shotgun start, a steak dinner after and many, many prizes will be awarded. There are only a couple of foursomes of ladies so feel free to sign up. Contact the post at the number above.
We are also working with Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide Christmas gifts to children. We are going to have an angel tree to accomplish our goal to provide 60 gifts. Please feel free to come to the post and select a tag from the tree and shop for one of these children. The tree will be up in November.
Veterans are of course our priority, so with that in mind, we will be shopping for several veterans at Christmas time. If you want to help us with this project we would be very appreciative.
We have planned several dinner dances in the upcoming months, some dates have already been set. November 10th will be our chance to wear our cowboy boots for our Country Western event. On December 8th we will kick off the season with our annual Christmas Party. January 19th gives us the honor to recognize our Veterans here at our Post with our USO celebration. February 9th is your chance to share a fun evening of dinner and dancing with your Valentine. April 6th will be our “Farewell” Luau to all our snowbirds as they head back North for the summer. We hope to add a few more events to our calendar. We will keep you posted.
Events that are planned by your Auxiliary are always intended to provide a great evening of entertainment, good food and great friends. We also need to remember that each of these events is a “fund raiser”. All profits from these events are given back to Veterans, Community and Youth programs. This year, much of the monies raised will be earmarked to help with repairs that are need here at our home Post.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
