On Saturday, November 1 Piedmont Unit 311 will be hosting an Auxiliary 201.  This will be similar to the one that was held in Mitchell earlier this month where we spent the day focusing on reports.  We will be starting at 10:30 AM with lunch provided by Unit 311.  Please try to attend; the event we held in Mitchell resulted in great discussions and I am sure the one on Saturday will be just an informative.

Mid Year reports are due from the Units to the District President’s on November 15th.  From the District President’s to Department Chairman by December 1; and to the Northwest Division Chairman on December 15.  Please be sure to get your reports done on time – we don’t want anyone to be left out.

Please continue to send your obligations and membership to Department Headquarters at P.O. Box 1819, Sioux Falls, SD  57101.  You can also reach Department Headquarters by calling (605) 461-3389; this is the cell phone number listed on the Department Guide.  We had some issues with our Department email address so it has been changed to
