NOTICE TO AUXILIARY MEMBERS  

At the Auxiliary's February 12th meeting it was voted on and passed to raise the Senior dues from $25.00 to $30.00 per year and the 
Junior dues will stay the same $5.00 per year, due to the fact that Department & National dues are being increased. 
This increase will start in August for the 2018-2019 year.
 

In our By-Laws, Article 5 Section 5, it states that no President can serve more than 2 years consecutively.  It is now changed to read:  A President may serve longer than 2 years consecutively.   Voted on at our Monday,April 8, 2019 meeting and passed unanimously.
