There are a couple of activities for the Juniors on Saturday, October 19th. One is a service project putting together bags to be delivered to the Fisher House. Units are being asked to bring and donate toiletry items for the bags for Fisher House. If possible, any Juniors staying over until Sunday will be brought to Fisher House in the morning to deliver the bags. The other project is to develop a poppy wreath for the President’s Poppy Project. Please bring as many Junior Auxiliary members as you can to this meeting.
The President’s Project this year is a poppy wreath. The submitted wreath should have a patriotic and veterans/military support theme. It should contain a minimum of 24 poppies and be a minimum of 18” in diameter. Please be sure your wreath has a method for being hung.
There is a cash raffle to fundraise for the Department. Funds are anticipated to be used for the President’s visitation to units. There are 500 tickets at $20 per ticket. Please see attached flyer.
We have received confirmation that our Western Division National Vice President Cheryl Parks has been approved to attend our Fall Workshop.
I hope that this helps you with your planning at your next meeting and I also hope to see all of you at this year’s Fall Workshop and DEC Meetings. If you have any questions please email email@example.com or call (907) 227-8169.
