Summer has definitely arrived!!!  We better enjoy it; one never knows how soon that “white stuff” will arrive. 

We had a FANTASTIC day in Pierre on July 19th; approximately 30 ladies attended the Auxiliary 101 and many of them were new faces, which makes it even more exciting!!

The District meeting schedule is posted on the Website under the Calendar of Events tab; as soon as details of times and locations become available we will make updates.

Commander Tim’s Homecoming is quickly approaching in Milbank.  It is schedule for August 9 with the Parade at Noon, followed by a program at the school auditorium and then lunch at the Pizza Hut following the program.  Please make an effort to attend.

We are working on a date for the Constitution and Bylaws and Policy committee to meet.   Remember, this meeting is open to all members.  You are welcome to attend, if you have any questions you will be asked to write them down and give them to a committee member.  You concerns will be addressed; if further explanation is needed then you may be asked to speak.  Otherwise, only committee members are allowed to speak.

Helen is continuing to add items to Website and make corrections.  If you have a comment please feel free to send her an email at

Cheryl Hovorka is currently at Girls Nation and from what I can tell she is having a wonderful time; I am sure she will have LOTS to share with us when she returns.  Keep all of Girls Nation candidates in your prayers that they have an enjoyable time and travel home safely.


Until next time – In the Spirit of Goodwill
