Sheridan VFW Auxiliary elects officers

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan VFW Auxiliary met at the post on April 9 at 6:30. At this meeting the auxiliary elected officers for the coming year. Installation will be at our June meeting. The recent bake sale was successful and members were able to add additional money to our regular donations for this month.

The World War II Museum in New Orleans and the Semper K9 will be this month’s donations. Semper K9 is a nonprofit that trains service dogs to provide physical and emotional support to US Armed Forces veterans and their families.

The next bake sale will be on May 17 at the post. Following the business meeting we signed well over 100 cards of thanks and well wishes for veterans who will be going on the Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight to Washington D.C. later this month. The cards will be distributed on the return flight from D.C. to the veterans as a “mail call” event that was a notable part of the veterans’ daily life when they were in the military.
