AFSG Newsletter December 2018
The AFSG Board wishes you and your families the happiest and healthiest holidays and New Year! Even though Thanksgiving has ofﬁcially passed I cannot help but feel that we should be thankful every day of the year for the freedoms we have been blessed with and protected by the service and sacriﬁce of our military men, women and their families. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers over these very special holidays.
This new year will bring some new energy and challenges on how we can better grow our membership as successfully as we have been able to support our Wounded Veteran Foundations ﬁnancially. Many members have expressed that we should meet more frequently on a social basis and not be just focused on our money raising events.
Thanks to our members who attended our November Membership meeting. A big Thank You also to Al Liedel, past president, who collected great donor rafﬂe prizes from Saigon Kitchen, Irish Wolfhound and Swing Therapy. Also Thanks to Dan Swafford for his Bro Dan’s Hawaiian Sauce!
Travel safe and have a great holiday.
