Another Mid-Winter Conference is over. I had hoped for better attendance, but that was not to be. Our District Chairmen gave reports about the mid-year progress of their programs. We were honored to have a visit from our Department President Chris Ronning, and by our Department 2nd Vice-President Carol Kottom.

President Chris spoke to us about her project, which is twofold. She is planning to supply out-door furniture and a grill for the Minneapolis Veterans Home Day Care Center. The second part of her project is the Creative Arts Festival held at both the Minneapolis Veterans Medical Center and the St. Cloud Veterans Medical Center. If you haven’t given to the Department President’s project yet, I hope you will. She has also asked the ten Districts to hold Fisher House Showers at their meetings.

Vice-President Carol is running for First Vice-President and spoke to that endeavor. She also reminded us to remember to us the names of our programs, not just the acronyms. (Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation instead of V A &R) We sometimes forget that others don’t always know what we’re talking about.

It has been announced that the American Legion Auxiliary National President will be making a stop in the Second District during her tour of Minnesota. She will be in New Ulm on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 for a noon luncheon.

What an honor to have a National Commander and a National President both visiting the Second District. The National Commander will be in New Ulm for dinner on February 4, 2015. Contact New Ulm Post 132 at 507-354-4016 to make your reservation and to make your meal choice by January 29th.

The Department Sweetheart Rally will be in Chanhassen on February7. Please get your memberships to your District contact by the6th, so we can have a good turn-in. The second renewal notices have now gone out from National so your unit members have been reminded. But, a call from you asking them to pay their dues ads a personal note and lets them know that they are an important part of your unit. Let’s keep our membership growing and remember the importance of each of our members.
