Ladies Auxiliary

MARIE BRADFORD

AUXILIARY PRESIDENT 

 Our Post 2298 Ladies Auxiliary is reputed to be one of the best in the AMVETS organization.  That is a result of the dedicated efforts of the Ladies in supporting our many AMVETS functions.  They are very active in serving in the community, hosting fund raisers, and much much more.  Over the years, they were a significant factor in the growth of our organization and continue to support the organization in every endeavor.  We welcome all eligible ladies to come and join our organization and help us take care of our veterans!
