Auxiliary and such

I was going to give you a weekend recap but honestly I can't even remember what the heck we did. *Thinking* Oh ok, I took Vinnie to see Santa. And Saturday night we had the hubby's work Christmas party. So we now have 1 of around 10 parties under our belt. It was a descent time. They hand out $100 bills so that's always good.

Monday evening Matt had class and I went to my first VFW Ladies Auxiliary Meeting. I joined a couple of months ago but haven't been able to attend a meeting until now. Okay, that's a lie. I haven't had the motivation to go to a meeting until now. Matt joined the VFW around April ish and I joined the Auxiliary around October.

It wasn't too bad. Our Auxiliary has Sunday lunches once in awhile and I will help with those. I definitely think they need, how do I put this, some younger, fresher opinions. Besides one lady, I was the youngest one there by around 40 years.

What I am getting at here is that WE need to join or the Auxiliary will be no more. Also, our husbands need to join the VFW or the VFW will be no more.

By we and our I mean all of my readers who are the spouse, sister, daughter, or granddaughter of someone who has served in a foreign war. The VFW does lot of things for Vets and many other organizations. I also know for a fact that the older member get a kick out of seeing younger people like Matt and I at their meetings.

It cost me $20 for a year membership. Next year, I will sign up for a lifetime membership and I believe it is around $200. They also have scholarship opportunities for members and it looks great on a resume.

So, if you get a chance, look into it.

Oh and Matt found out Monday night that he got a 97% on his test last week! Best grade in the class. I'm super proud of him.

Happy Wednesday!

I so want to go to a Christmas party they had $100 out at :).

Way to go on the Test Matt!

Sounds like it is going to be a great place for a lifetime membership.

In my area, a lot of younger people have joined the VFW. I also contribute it to the fact that they have game nights where guys can come and play texas hold'em. lol

Hope you are having fun at all your Christmas parties! I know how you do the facebook funnies. I don't know how to link up but I found one for you today:

Deserves a bronze star for the bikini wax I jet endured. Fawk.

It was from a soldier. I mean REALLY? Seriously ? Why on earth would you post that you just got one of those!
