Having joined the VFW Auxiliary under the eligibility of my husband, Mick, a Vietnam Veteran, I am a Life Member of Auxiliary #1308 in Alton in the 12th District. We are both retired and enjoying life in rural Jersey County.
I am honored to be a part of the 2023-2024 “Be a Warrior” team. As Reports Coordinator, I will be working with each of the Program Chairmen to help ensure the reports you send in are recorded on the Department’s X-Sheet. This year we are also asking that each Auxiliary complete the Auxiliary to Post Community Service Form, which is located below and can also be found on Malta under the Member Resource/Miscellaneous Resouces tab. National has developed this form for Auxiliaries to use. Instead of Department tracking all of the numbers of members volunteering, hours, miles and dollars and then submitting it to the Department VFW, each Auxiliary will be responsible for providing this information to their individual Post. These numbers will be included on their Community Service Report. I also ask that you send me a copy by either emailing or mailing it to me. To make it easier, there is also an on-line form located under the On-Line Reporting tab on the Department’s website (IL Program Report for the Post). You can fill in your numbers, print it off to give to your Post, then click “submit” where it will be sent to me. Either way of sending me this report is acceptable.
The Department’s goal is to be 100% reported in all Programs by December 31, 2023. “Be a Warrior” and continue “Banding Together for Our Veterans” by working the Programs and reporting what you do. Our Programs are so important because they are designed to bring much needed services, information and assistance to our Veterans, service members and their families, and our communities.
I am only a phone call or an e-mail away, so please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
