Junior Activities News – November 2013
I hope all the Junior Activities have been going well in your Units. Please share your
activities and praise your girls on the Department of Mississippi Juniors Activities Facebook
page. I know that parades are fast coming up, share what your girls are doing.
The patch for November is the VA & R Patch, I hope you all are working with your girls. You
can find patch information on https://www.alaforveterans.org/Programs/Junior-Member-
Veterans Day is also coming up and I am sure Posts/Units have activities planned. Please
include your Junior Girls in your activities. The girls need to be involved and volunteer right
alongside of you. This is where they will get experience in
volunteering to serve our Veterans and gain positive volunteer
experiences that instill the ideals of the Auxiliary.
Keep up the good work!!
