Janet Kays, Chairman

Hi, my name is Janet Kays and I am your Youth Activities Chairman for 2017-2018. I have been a member of the Auxiliary for 9 years and have served in various positions at the Auxiliary and District levels. This is my second year as a Department Chairman, and my first year as Chairman for Youth Activities.

One of the most exciting things we do as the Auxiliary to the VFW is to work with the young people of our communities. Please take a few minutes to look over the program. Check out the box with ideas of how to get reported in Youth Activities. This will make it easy to get started. Use the tools and information given to you in the program to create a successful year for your auxiliary.

Our goals for this year are:

1. To encourage and enable local youth to support veterans, and reward them for those efforts.

2. For each Auxiliary to sponsor and work with youth groups in the community.

3. To reward our young citizens for random acts of patriotism.

We must promote patriotism and respect for the veterans of our country. Leave a Legacy in your community, by mentoring our youth.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Have fun with this program! And please remember to report all of your activities. I look forward to working with you, and with the great team that President Mary has entrusted to serve Illinois.
