I have some exciting news for the Auxiliary!!!  We have been asked to participate in the South Dakota Public Broadcasting annual festival to promote educational programming.  What this means is our organization will be manning the phones on the Monday, August 11 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM.  During this time we will be able to promote our organization and what we do.  For example we will be able to talk about our involvement in Special Olympics, Girls State and our Scholarship Program.  But mostly it will be great exposure for our organization!!

The telethon will take place at USD in Vermillion.  Cheryl Hovorka has volunteered to coordinate lining up the volunteers for the event; if you are interested in helping with the phones please contact Cheryl at or call her at (605) 661-4803.  PLEASE let Cheryl know by Monday, August 4 if you are able to help.  And remember – wear any Auxiliary shirt that you have!!  We want people to know that we are proud to be an American Legion Auxiliary member!!!

We are going to need 6 to 8 volunteers; if you are only able to work a couple of hours that would still be great.  We need to make sure that we have enough people available so PLEASE be sure to contact Cheryl as soon as possible.  Thank You to Autumn Simunek for thinking of us for this event and to Cheryl for coordinating the event.

In the Spirit of Goodwill!!
