Comrades and Families,

We have elections coming up this month and I hope to see a large group there to define the leadership of this Post.  We as Americans also have other elections coming soon.  When you make a decision on who to vote for both in the Post and in our community, what do you use to choose which person to vote for?  With the Boy Scouts I teach them to be a leader which character and integrity.  Ask yourself if the candidates have character.  Will they devote themselves to the cause for which they will be representing.  Ask yourself if the candidates have integrity.  Will they face the difficult challenges with passion and see it to its success.  If your choices are those of good character and integrity then in the long run the world will be a better place and our community will benefit from our leadership being sound.

Thank you Deb, it was a honor serving with you.

Yours in Service,

Joe Wolsey, Commander Post #3838   

Dear Auxiliary Members,


Next meeting is election time, please plan on attending the meeting--second Monday 7pm.  I have been so honored in being President the last two years.  I am excited about the growth of the Auxiliary since male members may now join.  I want to remind everyone that if you have not paid your 2016 dues as of June 30th you will no longer be a member.  All dues have to stay current, so after the election, and starting July 1st, 2017 dues will be needed.  This is how National wants it from here on out, July-December, we collect 2017 dues, and you are in good standing, after December you are still a member but not in good standing.  If not paid by June 30th then you are no longer a member and will have to reapply and get voted back in.  IF ANYONE WANTS A COPY OF BYLAWS please get in touch with me.  Sandy Prichard 573-576-6317 Text preferably or email . There are several positions to vote on and several chairmen that need to be appointed. I hope to see many of you in the next two months to help out with programs, fundraisers and committees.


Sandy Prichard, Auxiliary President
