I hope everyone
had a very Happy
celebration with family
and friends. It was nice
having a break from
meetings. Out Unit is
wrapping up a few June
projects like the six
Baby Diaper Bags for
Veterans. I am told the
duo of Bonnie Lamp and Bonnie Jenkins will have
the bags at our August meeting. Kelly Vinge and I
had a great time shopping for items for the VA
Hospital. We added our shopping bounty to items
donated by Ellyn Thompson to the VA Hospital.
I hope everyone has a great time at the Golf
Outing. If you are not golfing and would like to lend
a hand, we could use a few more volunteers to help
with the food preparation. Good Luck to all the
I have been asked by the Take-a-Vet-
Fishing team to let everyone know about an
opportunity to help them raise funds, by working the
Taste of Madison – Take-a-Vet-Fishing booth this
Labor Day weekend. Contact Rob Blanchar at 838-
3956 for information.
It seems I am suffering from several
episodes of memory lapse. It seems I forgot to
personally thank some of volunteers in last month’s
newsletter. I am truly sorry if I did not mention you
by name; please know it was not intentional. I value
and appreciate everyone’s time and effort that you
give our Unit and Post. Without you, the volunteer,
our Unit and Post would not be able to accomplish
our mission of serving to the needs of our veterans,
family and community. THANK YOU from the
bottom of my heart.
Don’t forget to purchase your Legion Raffle
tickets. Our next meeting is on August 2nd.
During this heat wave, let’s be sure to watch over our friends and family.
Jodie Armstrong, Unit 534 President
