Note: This material was received in October from the VFW Auxiliary (well before the Nov. 16th VFW dinner and raffle). I am just now catching up and including that outdated material for completeness. -- Ted 12/25/2019
We are giving thanks this Veterans Day & Thanksgiving for our veterans & Helga McElhoe.
She is an original charter member & President of the VFW Auxiliary that is stealth in supporting veterans.
We always looking for new members, so if you are a family member of a veteran of foreign war please consider joining us. The Auxiliary has grown from a Womens Auxiliary to all family members.
We are currently selling raffle tickets for the pictured quilt made by Auxiliary member Deb Lutz.
The drawing will be at the VFW Thanksgiving meal between 11am-1pm on Saturday November 16th.
You may purchase tickets from your auxiliary members or the day of the meal at the post for 50 cents per chance or $5. for a book of 10 chances.
Help us bring joy & improve the lives of veterans with your support.
When you see Helga please let her know how grateful we are for all the years of love & support that she has volunteered for the Collinsville community & veterans.
She just may ask if you would like to purchase a book of raffle tickets.
Happy Veterans Day to all our Veterans!
We honor, love & support you always!
We have been blessed by your service to our great nation.
May we always keep this thought as our guiding light to serve God & country for the greater good.
