Comrades Auxiliary and Supporters,
With the Holiday Season approaching we seem to have lost our sense of direction in sequencing the calendar, notice that Christmas now comes before Thanksgiving in our efforts to become more PC (Politically Correct). Allow me to be the first to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Thanksgiving.
Although we were not inundated with applicants in both our Voice of Democracy and Patriots Pen programs our Judges selected the following candidates as our representatives in the District 1 competitions, Miss Ava Tanner of Lowcountry Leadership Charter School for Voice of Democracy and Mr. William Ramey of Daniel Island Middle School. Miss Tanner Will receive a $100.00 Gift Card and Mr. Ramey a $50.00 Gift Card.
We have in partnership with the Auxiliary provided Thanksgiving Baskets for four needy Families in our Community and plan to extend this giving to include the Christmas Holiday oops! Wrong sequence again.
As you may have noticed I have asked Ralph Harrell to return as our Quartermaster following the resignation of Jed Hermes. Ralph has a great deal of experience in this position having served as our Quartermaster for several years in the recent past.
We continue in our effort to serve our Veterans their Families and our Community.
Merry Christmas and a Joyous New Year!!
God Bless America and the VFW
