Ladies Auxiliary Members Visit Albany
Members of Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary Post #2781 in Rockaway joined with fellow posts at the annual Department of New York VFW and New York Ladies Auxiliary Spring Conference and Legislative Conference in Albany in late February.
Jessica Sheard, President, Edna Harris and Gloria Meyers, President of the Queens County Council District 1, attended meetings at the Marriott Hotel in our state's capitol to discuss programs and make recommendations on projects that the auxiliaries could do in each program.
On Sunday evening, February 26, the Gold Chevron Ball was held in honor of the State's Service Officers. The next morning, members met with the State's Department of Veterans Affairs and presented them with veterans issues that the posts hope will be addressed this year. That evening, the three-day conference concluded with a reception for state legislators so members could discuss issues that affect our nation's veterans.
