THIS & THAT

Good afternoon from the water-logged but drying out garden level at 4647 Forbes Boulevard…
For those of you who don’t know due to storms in the Headquarters area on Tuesday night, the entire bottom floor of Headquarters was flooded out. ServPro, a clean-up company, has been here since yesterday and we’ve got fans and humidifiers going, file cabinets displaced…it’s like the old saying...”this place looks like a cyclone hit it”!
This couldn’t have come at a worse time considering we are prepping for National Convention but I am confident we will, in the immortal words of Larry the Cable Guy, GITTER DONE!!! We appreciate your patience and understanding while we get everything back to some semblance of order and play catch-up.
Headquarters will be closing today at NOON and we will be closed Friday, July 3 in observance of my favorite holiday, July 4th! We’ll be back and better than ever and hopefully dried out on Monday July 6.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!
"We Waited Together - Now Let's Work Together"
AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary is a subordinate of AMVETS (www.amvets.org). We have been in the business of assisting veterans and their communities for over 50 years. It's a volunteer effort that we proudly carry out. From looking after our veterans and their families to those hospitalized and in need - all related to a veteran ourselves - are committed to working for the good of our country and the needs of its citizens.
We firmly believe that our service to our family members in the military did not stop with their discharge. For that reason, Auxiliary members across the nation give their time and efforts to ensure that our veterans' needs are met.
