Ladies! Summer is here!
I hope you all are enjoying some of our beautiful weather, if you are able to get out, do so. The freshness of the air is renewing and the spring flowers inspiring. We had so much going on in May with the Stark County Council being held at our post on the 16th of May at 12 noon. We had a speaker, Melissa Seibert, from the S.A.M. center next door. We learned so much about the center and all it does for our wonderful veterans.
I hope many of you were able to see the Memorial Day parade and the float with our veterans aboard. It was a beautiful day and a nice day to meet with people after the parade.
We had our installation dinner with great food by our people in the kitchen. We are very fortunate to have such committed people working at our post and who are great cooks/chefs. The speaker was inspiring. I wish all could have heard him. Danny Webber was honored by our auxiliary for being so helpful in so many ways, we are so pleased to have his help, he’s the best!
We are trying to get ready for our Santa auction by letting you know way in advance the need of donations to auction off. You can re-gift or if you are thinking of a yard sale think of us also, many things do not sell and this is a way of getting your house or garage clutter free. Please don’t forget us!
I will leave you with some words to go thru this year-OPTIMISTIC, ENERGY, ENTHUSED, HOPEFUL, HARMONY, DEDICATED, MOVER. Remember these words and put them in your vocabulary to make your days a little brighter, we all need a positive boost some days so look at the blessings we have in our lives instead of negativity. You can do it!!
~~ Happy Marotto, President
