District meetings are about to start so watch for the schedule on the Constant Contact email.
The American Legion Auxiliary Department of Colorado Convention is fast approaching. It will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Denver, CO June 30-July 3, 2022. You can call the Crowne Plaza at 303-302-4159 to make reservations. The cutoff date for the $153.94 rate is May 29, 2022.
If you have any who has passed away this year please send their names into our Department Secretary so we can remember them at the Memorial Service on Sunday July 3, 2022 during Convention.
If you know of any children in your units that have been or are caregivers to their family members please give us the names by June 1st so we can make up certificates for them. Send those names into Department Secretary Terry Lena, as well.
If you are a chairman of a committee or a Department Officer please send your report for the book of reports by May 15th to Terry Lena and she will get them to the Legion to be put in the Convention book.
Just a reminder that your Unit Year End Reports are due by April 15th. Please submit them to the Department Secretary Terry Lena and she will get them to the Chairman.
Girls State will be June 4-9, 2022 at The University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO. If you have girls going to Girls State, get everything turned into the Girls State committee. The deadline for applications is May 1, 2022.
The American Legion Auxiliary Department of Colorado recently launched a new communication tool call Constant Contact. We are trying to communicate with as many members as we can. Each Thursday our Department Secretary Terry Lena will be putting out an email of all information we have for the week. It goes to all members that we have email addresses for. If you wish to be on the list please call Department Secretary Terry Lena and give her your email address. You can also use this to put out events for your unit, just send the information to Terry by Thursday and she will get it on the Constant Contact communication.

National Security is about supporting active duty military and their families. There are many different ways to help. As individuals and units many already do without even know it.
Did you know that sending care packages fall under that category? It does.
I know that we have seen it a couple of times go out. However, I wanted to remind you. The American Legion Auxiliary National Headquarters has partnered with ShipThrifty to allow for a better way to ship boxes and save money.
This is taken directly from Nationals Website:
Shipthrifty believes in empowering people through shipping. With over 700 tons of packages shipped at a 99.9% success rate, Shipthrifty is an expert at fulfilling shipping needs for those looking to ship 1 to 1,000 packages. ALA members have access to the free to use site that allows for users to:

Another thing for National Security is R.E.D. Friday. Wear red on Fridays to Remember Everyone Deployed.
