Welcome to our year of “Leaving Our Legacy” for the VFW Auxiliary.  Our journey began at our Department Convention in Springfield where Mary Spindler was elected to serve as your Department President for this year. I already have some great photos to remind her of her first steps in her “trip of a lifetime.”

This year she will be traveling throughout the state of Illinois and other locations to visit with auxiliary members and I hope you are able to capture those times with your photos and share them with me.

When a journey is done, everyone enjoys looking back on notes and photos of what occurred along with way.  That is what I want to create for Mary.  Capture the moments that you spend with her and send photos and articles to me via mail or email and I’ll provide Mary with a collage of her year, which I’m sure, will pass quickly.

With your help we will ensure Mary’s legacy continues beyond her year as Department President and she will be able to look back on a job well done and have wonderful memories for many years to come.  Let’s get started!


We have provided a place here for you to download all of the information that we distribute to you through our Program Book and Bi-Monthly Chairmen’s Bulletins.  You will need Adobe Reader, it is a Free program and can be downloaded here  Get Adobe
