I am honored to be chairman for the Historian & Media Relations program during this “Boots on the Ground for Our Veterans” year. I joined the Lake Villa VFW Memorial Post 4308 Auxiliary in 2014 under the eligibility of my oldest son and proud to say that my other son is still serving in the military. My volunteer work is very personal to me, and I am here to share what I have learned over the years and coach you in this year’s goals.
This year’s initiative from our National Ambassador,
Nicole Koutz, is to CREATE THE MOST OUTSTANDING
HISTORIAN & MEDIA RELATIONS REPORT.
WHAT DOES THE AUXILIARY HISTORIAN AND MEDIA RELATIONS CHAIRMAN DO?
The Historian & Media Relations Chairman is the keeper of the memories which includes collecting all materials pertaining to the history of his/her Auxiliary, compiling it, and then submitting a narrative of the Auxiliary’s accomplishments for the year to the President.
I will be doing the same for your Department Auxiliary. I will be selecting photos from what you send me and those collected from your Facebook page. I will then compile them for our Department President, Marvie Wisniewski, so she can see all the accomplishments in the Districts and Auxiliaries.
It is my task to see that your works are memorialized and shared. By recording and collecting information in one place, people can see all that we accomplished in our community and state. This also allows us to leave a legacy for future generations to uphold and build upon, as we honor our loved ones who answered our nation’s highest calling and strive to honor all servicemembers through our acts of service.
We want people to know WHO we are, WHAT we do,
WHERE and WHEN we do it and WHY.
Every event is newsworthy! So, advertise and document this year –
