President Jeannine's  April Blog

I would like to wish everyone a HAPPY EASTER!!

As I write this blog, they are collecting my stem cells for my transplant in June!  Great news, the process isn’t bad, the sitting around is the problem.  I can’t sit still, and this involves 7 hours in one place!!

District Meetings are complete!  What great things the Units reported that they did for our Veterans.  Poems and Essays were judged and as always, they were great. 

April was Children and Youth month and purple up for the “Military Child” hope your Unit was able to do something special.

     District Elections were held in the odd numbered Districts.  Good to see new faces willing to move up and serve.  District 1 elected Carol Edwards, District 3 elected Patsy Madsen, District 5 elected Wendy Henley, and District 7 reelected Alice Upshaw.  Thank You ladies!  They will be ratified at State Convention in June in Sioux Falls.

     State Convention will be June 6-9, 2019 in Sioux Falls SD. it takes place at the Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center.  Don’t forget your Banquet and Luncheon tickets, none will be sold at the door.  PLEASE!  bring items to donate to the Silent Auction.  The monies collected will go for my Presidents Project at the Ft. Meade Medical Center for iPad’s to be used in the Out Patient Mental Health Unit.  Cowboy hats were given out at Midwinter if you received on bring it to State Convention, we will be wearing them.  If you didn’t get one there will be hats available at Convention. 

     Girls State will be held at USD in Vermillion May 27, thru June 1, 2019.  Auxiliary Day is that Thursday, May 30th, anyone wishing to come is welcome, give Cheryl a call so she can plan on you.  If you’ve never been, Good Experience if you can make that work.

Hope to see everyone at State Convention!
