A Message From The VFW Auxiliary Department President

 To:  Missouri VFW Auxiliary Officers and Members

Subject:  COVID -19

The Missouri VFW Commander Troy Williams posted on Facebook the following information about the Post and Auxiliary Members.

  • He asked that all Posts and Auxiliaries in Missouri cancel all activities through March 31st. This includes meetings, Bingo, Dinners, Canteens, etc.
    • They will reassess this when it gets closer to the March 31st
  • Follow the guidelines set out by the Federal, State and CDC on the COVID -19.
  • No unnecessary traveling.
  • Reach out to our Veterans and elderly members to make sure they have what they need during this time. Volunteer to get groceries for them so they do not have to get out.  Give them your phone number so when they need help, they can call.
  • The Service Offices are closed. They are not seeing Veterans currently.  But if someone has an issue, they can call the phone numbers below:
    • Louis – 314-253-4470
    • Jefferson City – 573-636-8761

We do not take this lightly.  Things keep changing daily and with that, we will adjust.  As changes are made, we will update you.   But for right now, keep the hands washed and do the social distancing. Stay at home if possible and only get out when necessary.  We each want to keep our family, our friends and our members healthy and safe.

Rowena Grigsby

Missouri VFW Auxiliary President
