Auxiliary 3944 Overland-St. Ann Memorial makes a donation to help with the National Home

In September 2017 District 6 National Home Trustee, Sissy Borel , visited Overland-St. Ann Memorial Post # 3944 .

The Auxiliary presented Sissy with a check in the amount of  $10,000 donation to the Safety & Security Fund.  This fund will be used to purchase an Emergency Notification System for the 80 acre campus.

A month later at the National Home’s Annual Meeting the Auxiliary# 3944  presented another donation in the amount of    $7,500 via Skype for the Technology Fund.  What a wonderful thing to do to help our National Home.

Is your Auxiliary 100% yet!

Auxiliaries remember the deadline to be 100% is December 22, 2017 in order to receive a special gift and citation during the mid-winter conference.  Your Auxiliary will also be placed in a drawing for $100 and the Auxiliary Treasurer will receive $30.

Last year 72 auxiliaries met the goal of 100% membership.  To date we have 20.  Let’s get those reminders out and phone calls made.  Remind the members that if their dues are not paid by December 31, 2017 they are no longer a member in good standing.  Dues must be paid by June 30 to remain a continuous member.

Prior year’s dues may not be paid after July 1.

Any member who has not maintained continuous membership shall submit an application and be accepted in the same manner as a new member.  No admission fee shall be required.

I know all Auxiliaries will be 100% by December 22 because I believe in magic.


Department of Missouri is 71.67 Percent in Membership

CONGRATULATIONS Districts 5, 6, and 17. All you Auxiliaries have submitted dues!  We now have 7 Auxiliaries that are 100% or more. This really isn’t many, but I know you will all perform your magic and all Auxiliaries will be 100%.  WE CAN DO THIS!  Remember we need members to continue our wonderful wor for our veterans. Celia Davis, membership chairman Department of Missouri.

Department President’s Special Project has changed!

Due to some issues of working with the individuals that are doing the Vets for Pets, Department President Nelda has changed her special project to a Veterans Community Project that is happening in her community.  Below is all the information about this project.  If you have raffle tickets with the Pets for Vets, you can still turn that money in and those tickets will go into the same drawing for the beautiful quilt.

Our Mission

We are determined to make a difference in the lives of homeless Veterans, a task accomplished only by community for community.

We are building Veterans Village – a specialized community network of tiny homes and services dedicated to supporting every man and woman who took the oath for our country.

We believe one homeless Veteran is one too many. Please help us on our mission to end veteran homelessness by donating or volunteering.

Veterans Village

Through contributions and partnerships, we are creating Veterans Village; a specialized community of tiny-homes and onsite services that will provide housing stability and treat the underlying cause of the Veteran’s homelessness. The combination of housing stability and onsite services will lead to more successful permanent housing outcomes. Once ready, the Veteran will transition to other, existing programs. Veteran’s Village will provide the Veteran with a sense of community support as they transition back into society.

At the heart of Veterans Community Project is a belief in community. Through the power of community, VCP will provide Veterans the tools necessary to achieve a stable and prosperous civilian life. Housing and services are provided at no cost to the Veteran, therefore the success of Veterans Community project is contingent on the generosity of the community.



Due to health reasons, Department Hospital Chairman Jennifer Moore has resigned her position.  Judy Hutchison has volunteered to finish up this year as Hospital Chairman.  Please look at your October General Orders for more information about Judy.  Thank you Judy for stepping up and helping the Department with this great program.
