MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Welcome to “MAKING LIFE BEARABLE for OUR VETERANS“ year. As many of you may know, I had an accident on Sunday, June 21st when I fell off a ladder and broke my left leg/ankle very badly both bones (tibia and fibula) were broken. After 2 surgeries I am currently recouperating at the Loft Rehab and Nursing of Canton, Il. My length of stay here is unknown at this time. I still need at least one more surgery to place a plate and pins.
Even though I am physically unable to attend anything at this time, I do have my phone and computer with me to answer e-mails, receive phone calls and attend meetings via Zoom. Please send me your meeting information so I can get my schedule planned out as soon as possible.
Patti McLoed, Diana Rudeen, Linda Lorenz, our line officiers and chairmen have stepped up to assist me in helping you with any issues that may arise. Please do not hesitate to contact me or them when necessary.
As restrictions start to lessen up due to THE COVID19 situations, I want to encourage you to continue to use Zoom in your meetings. This option allows all members who are unable to physically attend to still be involved and kept up to date on the events and programs that is occurring in your Auxiliaries and Districts.
Thank you for all you are doing. Thank you for your devotion and support to our Veterans, their
families, our programs and this great Organization.
Please be kind to everyone, we all have the same goal in common and that is to take care of our Veterans. There are many ways to reach a common goal, learn to listen, adapt, accept and work together as a team. Nothing can be accomplished by bullying, threatening, stalking etc. Our Veterans worked together on the battlefield to fight for our freedoms, we need to learn to work together to support our Veterans.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Focused!!!
Linda Armstrong, President
