Stephanie Reynolds, President of VFW Post 8053
Due to complying with the COVID-19 virus guidelines, the VFW 8053 Auxiliary has not been meeting, and new officers have not yet been elected. We continue to keep veterans in our thoughts as we all adjust to the current restrictions and look forward to resuming our schedule.
One service we can all provide during this time is to continue collecting the pink “Box Tops$ Education” found on many food products. These box tops help Veterans of Foreign Wars National Home for Children and families of members of the VFW in Eaton Rapids, Mich. It was established in 1925 and is a living memorial to all veterans. Children and families of VFW and auxiliary members are given opportunities for growth and development in a nurturing community. Please save the box tops and contribute them to our auxiliary when we resume meetings.
Days honoring the military this month are July 4, Independence Day; July 21, the anniversary of the creation of the Department of Veterans Administration; July 27, the National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day; and July 29, the anniversary of the Army Chaplain Corps.
Please join us in keeping our active-duty military members, our veterans, and their families in our hearts and minds.
