​Department President

​Although there is no change in the weather to indicate Fall is coming, we have changed the calendar to September and children are on their way back to school.

I would like to thank everyone who participated in our Schools of Instruction. Share what you learned with your Auxiliary and your fellow officers. Sharing helps us become a strong TEAM and a strong TEAM helps support our veterans, military and their families. As you read over the information from "Building The Auxiliary Foundation" training if you have questions please do not hesitate to contact your District President, one of the Line Officers or me.

Presidents if you have not yet appointed your Program Chairmen now is the time to do so. The Department Chairmen are working hard to provide information and ideas your Auxiliary can use. Share this information with your members at your meetings.

October 27, 2018 is our Fall Conference that will be held at Embassy Suites, Piscataway. The C of A meeting will be held on Friday, October 26, 2018 and the Conference Dinner Saturday, October 27, 2018. Please review the information you were sent in the monthly mailings and make your plan to attend.

Please mark your calendar for November 27 - 28, 2018 which is when our National President Sandi Kribel makes her Official Visit to New Jersey. Also, mark your calendar for September 25, 2018 which is when the State Convention Committee will meet at Post 3324 at 6:42 PM to continue planning our 100*. State Convention. Convention will be held in Wildwood from June 19 to June 22, 2018. All are invited to attend the planning meetings and bring their ideas.

Congratulations to those Auxiliaries who made their first membership quota of 75% and earned their award of $20.00. If you haven't noticed all membership awards to the Auxiliaries have been increased. September 30, 2018 isthe date for earning the next award of $30.00 for 85%.

As this new year begins let us join together to make it the best ever, not for ourselves but for our Veterans, Military and their families. I believe together we can achieve any goal we set. As a TEAM we can achieve great things. So - let's "Always Be Alert For Ways To Help Our Veterans".

Have a GREAT month.
