  • Meeting Highlights 

The August business meeting did not happen. We did not have a quorum.

The members that did attend had an informal discussion time. We talked about fund raising, and also about getting more publicity for the detachment. Several ideas were discussed, and will be researched to determine if the detachment could use them in a positive way.

On August 8th, at 11:00A.M., our detachment, in partnership with Congregation of Hope Lutheran Church in De Pere, will be presenting Gift cards to residents of Veterans Manor, on St. Anthony Drive in Green Bay. Please come out and help represent the detachment.
