Our Foals or better known as Juniors will be honored to be like our Veterans in “America that runs free Because of those who served our Country” just like President Vickie theme this year. Help our Juniors show their prancing of supporting our Veterans by engaging them in unit and district meetings, activities and projects. Juniors are encouraged to recruit new members by spreading the news as in Junior President Mary’s goals going into the community, schools, churches, and in their neighborhoods. This will be done by letting them know What it is to be a Junior member.

 

Americanism:

Help Juniors to promote Americanism in their own communities. Have Juniors participate in Parades with Senior Auxiliary Members. Provide opportunity for your Juniors to learn about the meaning of the pledge of Allegiance, flag etiquette, and what it means with each fold. President Junior Mary will be collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald house.

 

Veterans and their Families

Encourage Juniors to support and recognize veterans who are deployed or returning home to be with their families. Have Juniors make cards or care packages during the holiday or just thanking a Vet. For their service. Like president Mary’s project is collecting food for homeless Veterans and not forgetting the women veterans also.
