MY TWO CENTS; With the State Commander coming to the district meeting we need a good turnout. As you know, the State is trying to have us merge with Philadelphia. My feeling is they want to see what kind of turnout we have. I am asking our members to attend this very important meeting. ……… Our Teamwork Motto kicked in at Saturday nights Showtime when we needed help with the food because of the unexpected turn out. Auxiliary members in attendance jumped in and helped make everything run smoothly. This is one reason I have decided to form the Events Committee. …….
