The Auxiliary to VFW Post 2295 met Tuesday July 17 at 5:30 p.m. at the post home. Auxiliary President Lou Ann Huberty opened the meeting with the pledge to the American Flag.

Minutes of the previous month's meeting were read and approved. by the membership and the Treasurer's report was given, subject to audit. The second quarter financial report audit was signed after approval by the members and the general orders were reviewed.

The membership was briefed on events of July 4th, which were termed a successful day for the free will donation for the hot dog, chip and drink meal. The bean bag tournament sponsored by the Auxiliary had six teams, but unfortunatley, both events came to an early halt when the rain storm came.

A signup sheet was sent around for workers and refreshments for Bingo nights, as the auxiliary members offer a sandwich, chips and dessert starting at 5:30 until 6:30 p.m. Bingo nights.

President Lou Ann Huberty reported on the fireworks sales and thanked the workers for support and help. Members were also reminded that the public is invited to enjoy coffee at the VFW Monday through Friday starting at 6:30 AM until 9:00 AM. This is a good time for coffee and conversation. The public is encouraged to attend and bring a friend!

Members also discussed the idea of benches to be placed to view the mural at the veteran's wall. More details on this project will be discussed at a later date.

The next meeting of the Auxiliary to the VFW is set for Tuesday, August 21 at 5:30. The Food committee will be JoAnn Winthers and Sherri Jo Cahill.

Minutes were proved by Secretary Linda Rouse
