The members of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars live by the motto, “Honor the dead by helping the living.” We set out to serve the veterans of this country and our communities in honor of the sacrifices and commitment of every man and woman  who has served in uniform.

 Dear Auxiliary Brothers & Sisters,


A huge thank you to all who helped make the pageant a success this year.  It was alot of fun.  You are very kind and generous for donating your time, flyers, tickets, wristbands, wagons, pizzas, tiaras, sashes, cheer and all the food that was brought in.  Thank you contestants, judges, waitresses, kitchen workers, money takers, ticket sellers, master of ceremony, DJ, fluffer and tuckers, fire tenders, and all those who helped set up the room and clean it up afterwards.  Great job to all!  We are doing wonderful things for our veterans.  I sure appreciate all of your ideas and help.


We need to continue selling the cash raffle tickets.  This is a great fundraiser for our auxiliary.  Please keep working on it.


I am looking forward to going to the Mid-Winter Conference the first weekend of February.  I am hoping to learn alot, and bring back some good ideas.


Our Veterans Barbeque at The Veterans Village in Punta Gorda is set for February 17th.  I hope you will all join in.  There will be more details at our next auxiliary meeting.  Happy Valentine’s Day to all!


Sunday, February 18th is our District 10 meeting.  It will be held at the Sarasota VFW Post 3233 at 10am.  I hope to have a good turnout.  Please join us.


Thank you to our volunteers that help the Post with dinners on Fridays and Mondays.  We are spread thin.  Please pass the word and maybe we can get some new faces to help.  Our Thursday kitchen helpers are awesome.  There is alot of behind the scenes preparation that goes into it each and every week.  


We have had a lot of men join our auxiliary in the last few months.  Our meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month at 6pm.  Please come to them. Your input would be greatly appreciated.    




Barbara Crump Auxiliary President
