Greetings Auxiliary Members! THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
We may be in a pandemic, but the resourcefulness of our Auxiliaries is both
encouraging and inspiring, Look around you and see the efforts auxiliary units
are accomplishing to extend our history of continuing to help Marines, veterans'
community, and family. Each unit has unique methods of promoting their
individual group ideas to complete the tasks started by those individuals who
paved the way and had the courage and foresight to launch the Marine Corps League
Auxiliary, Inc, in August of 1937.
Across this great nation, Auxiliaries are stepping up to the plate and helping from
Louisiana, Michigan and Florida to just name a few. The PNP Norma A Liner Unit
in Louisiana is helping with hurricane relief by raising funds with the League, a big
undertaking for a new unit. A Michigan Unit produced a short tribute video honoring
Veterans which they posted on Facebook, and a Florida Unit is promoting working
together to help keep their unit and detachment strong. Great job ladies!
What is your unit doing? Share your successes! This is your Auxiliary! Help us
spread the word of all the wonderful things your unit is doing. If we promote our
auxiliary and the accomplishments, more ladies will want to join us.
On the 5th of September, the Spring Hill Unit and Detachment held a flea market.
It was successful for both organizations. I enjoyed being part of this fund-raising
effort. More importantly was the camaraderie of the two groups working together
for a common goal. The result was the Unit gaining 5 new members initiated on
September17th. Welcome to our wonderful organization, Ladies!
The League's meeting on the evening of the 17th was very successful. Thank you
form the officers to rhir members and the auxiliary. The oldest member, Marine
Carl Carp (95 years young), stated "this is the best Detachment, and we appreciate
the Auxiliary and what they do to help."
