February 2024 Dispatch
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
I hope you are staying both dry and safe! January was a busy month as I assisted with the presentation of the District VOD / PP Awards reception. I also attended the Department VOD / Patriot Pens Award Banquet in Sacramento and the Council of Administration meeting where I had the pleasure of meeting National Jr. Vice President Lois Callahan. I also attended the Homecoming Reception for our Department President Diana Russell -Milton.

PAW-some news! As of this writing, our District 1 Auxiliary is 101.04% in Membership. Congratulations to all Auxiliaries who are 100% or higher! I so appreciate the efforts that all District 1 Auxiliaries are making towards this goal.
Do not forget to report all the wonderful things that your Auxiliaries are doing for our programs. We have 4 months left, so let us finish the year strong! Auxiliary Presidents, please have your Program Chairpersons get their reports into the District and Department Program Chairpersons as soon as possible.
Auxiliaries, please continue to strive in submitting your reports, so that we can be 100% in reporting. Your Program Chairperson is always willing to help you submit them. Please remember that this year, as part of the Circle of Excellence requirements, Auxiliaries must submit at least 1 report each for Americanism, Hospital, Veterans and Family Support, and one other program. If you need any help with submitting reports, please let me know. Let us try and report for EVERY program!
I hope you are all staying safe, warm, and healthy during our winter season. See you at the District Business Meeting!
