THANK YOU LADIES!
I would like to thank you ladies who braved the rain, fog and ice to come to our Mid-Winter Committee Meeting in Albany! We accomplished a lot of work on the Ships Store for the National Convention in Buffalo. If anyone has an idea for something we could offer in our Ships Store please contact anyone of the Officers or our Secretary Maureen Dunn.
Our next meeting will be on 13-14 April in Hogansburg - place to be determined yet. Please try to make this important meeting. We will be discussing the Department Convention and the National Convention. Our National President Karen Aune will be visiting us during our Department Convention so please try to attend the Department Convention being held on 7-8-9 June at the Embassy Suites in Syracuse. More information will be in the future.
We are also going to be having a Lottery Board at every meeting. This will help the Department with some well needed funds. We are unfortunately losing Units this year with that said we are then losing funds coming into Department. Sadly Capt. William Dale O’Brien Unit turned in their charter at Mid-Winter. But all of the Life Members are more than welcome to attend meetings near them and to attend any Department meetings or conventions.
Membership is all of our responsibility and not just for our Junior Vice Presidents….please carry a membership application with you as you never know who you will meet that is a Marine Wife, Mother, Daughter, etc.
I would like to wish all of you a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
Sharon Beeke, President
