We will soon be at Congress in Kansas City, Missouri! Look for everyone to be at the Hospitality Suite upon arrival! There will be lots of festivities!
Our First Lady, Janet Leishman, has been planning a tea for all of us after the Memorial Service on Sunday afternoon. On Tuesday, there will be a lovely luncheon at Webster House, http://www.websterhousekc.com/. There will be tours, shopping, two formal dinner banquets, and talks that we can all enjoy. Please plan on joining us!
If you have a little extra space in your luggage, please bring something (individual snacks, toiletries, hard candy or paperbacks) to share in the 25 gift boxes for the Patriots Project. If you need ideas of what to bring, Valerie Wilke can give you information on specific items that the soldiers need. You may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the Monday afternoon meeting, our members will be voting on the new slate of officers that were presented at the March meeting. The candidates are
President – Robin Townes
Vice President – Karen Powell
2nd Vice President – Laura Devinney
3rd Vice President – Jo Thornhill
Secretary – Abby Alexander
Treasurer – Caroline Paine
Please join me in wishing these women a very successful two years.
We all can contribute in some way to the Center for Advancing America’s Heritage (CAAH), the library. Currently, these funds are being generously matched by Sam and Karen Powell. If your State or Chapter Ladies Auxiliary is interested in making a donation, now is the time. The National, State and Chapter Ladies’ Auxiliaries may go over the $100,000.00 mark of supporting this important cause. Let’s make our mark at Kansas City!
Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about the National Ladies Auxiliary. Our dues are only $5.00 a year. I look forward to seeing you!
