February Newsletter

Auxiliary Unit 136

Welcome to February everyone. Season is in full swing once again. As many of you can see there have been many changes going on at Post 136. Before we get into this month’s agenda and happenings, I would like to take a moment and Thank Tracy Wentz for her outstanding efforts as Unit 136 President through Hurricane Ian and our recovery efforts. Tracy has decided to step down as President but will continue to be your AEF Chairman for the Dept. of Florida. If you have any questions or need any information about our AEF program, you can reach her by visiting As most of you know, I will once again be your President at Unit 136, I look forward to having an amazing rest of the year with all of you. Now on to the fun… The Auxiliary will be attending the Matlacha Hookers 25th Anniversary Party on February 4th at 11am-4pm. We will be there with membership information and can even help with your membership renewals that afternoon. Rumor has it there will be some of our infamous Jello shots around too? On February 17th we will host our annual 1 hole over the pond event from 10am-4pm featuring Pipe Dream from 1pm-4pm. Then on February 24th we will host our annual yard/craft sale from 8am-12pm. To save a vendor’s spot, please contact Kristen at (239) 738-6457. Also until February 12th  she will be collecting nonperishable food items to be given to our local VA food pantry, as they are in need to replenish their food shelves. And last but not least we would like to send out a huge “WELCOME” to all our new members to Unit 136. Keep an eye out for our upcoming newsletters as we try to keep you updated and informed on all our events. Remember our monthly meeting is always the 2nd Wednesday of the month Executive Board at 6pm and Membership at 7pm. We hope to see you this month on February 14th.


For God and Country,

Angee Romero
