President's Message
Dear Ladies,
  I hope you all had a wonderful summer. This year we are celebrating a 71-year milestone of charitable events. On Sunday, September 17th after the 12:30 Mass at St, Anthony's Parish we are having a membership drive at the Welcome Home Barbecue. I look forward to seeing each and every one of you there. This is a great opportunity to bring a friend or two who might be interested in joining the Auxiliary. Let’s work together in sisterhood and have fun raising money for our charities this upcoming year. Moving forward, I am excited to be your 2023-2024 President. Please make your best efforts to get involved with our different committees and fundraising events. If anyone is looking to get more involved, you can speak to myself or the Vice President Lina Fusco. Feel free to contact me anytime with your questions.
