This program has its ups and downs.

We cheer when we are able to start a new Auxiliary after working with bachelor Posts and guiding them through the procedures to start an Auxiliary. Then we work with the new Auxiliary to inspire their members by explaining our programs and why we do what we do.

But starting a new Auxiliary when we have faltering Auxiliaries is not the answer.

We work with Auxiliaries that may be struggling to get them back on track by trying to interest potential members telling them the good we do for our Veterans, our communities and our children. We do our best to motivate existing members by searching out a program that interests them to get them more involved. We are willing to try whatever may work to keep them an active Auxiliary.

I am asking everyone who may know of an Auxiliary that is experiencing problems to contact me, I am almost always available and will do my best to help.

Let’s all do our best for a Successful “Be a Warrior” Year
