VFW Auxiliary Continues To Serve Community

Ladies of VFW Auxiliary Post 5993 want the community to know the organization remains active and intact, despite recent happenings involving the VFW Post.
Because of the impasse between the VFW and the newly-formed Douglas County Veterans Memorial Association the Auxiliary is not allowed to meet at the location on West Washington Ave.
The Auxiliary will continue to conduct monthly meetings, on the second Tuesday of each month. Until further notice is given, the Auxiliary will meet at St. Leo’s Catholic Church Hall, on Old Highway 5 just north of the Ava city limits. Meetings will be held at 5 p.m.
The next monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 10.
Auxiliary President Robin Reinartz says the Auxiliary was recently recognized and awarded for being one of the best in the state, and they will strive to continue that level of prestige and commitment to local veterans. In the meantime, Bill Brewer is the VFW contact person in regard to Auxiliary activities. He may be reached at 417-683-2694.
Robin Reinartz may also be contacted at 417-543-5262.
