I joined the VFW Auxiliary when I turned 16 years old to VFW Post 9473. My whole family was members at one time. I joined under my grandfather Edward C Fagan, he served in the Coast Guard during WWII. My Mother Margaret (Peggy) Ramsey was District 11 Auxiliary President 1989 - 1990. She passed away in 1995 which then I let my membership go for a while.
I am a mother of 2 beautiful daughters which are grown and have children of their own now. I am a grandmother of 6 grandchildren (5 boys & 1 girl). (1) of my grandsons is adopted (my cousin is raising his son as me being his grandma).
I rejoined the VFW Auxiliary in 2016 to VFW Post 5356 in St. Clairsville, Ohio. I have been Sr. Vice President for a few years now. I have also been Legislative Chairman in my Auxiliary. I have also been Legislative Chairman in the District for a couple years now. 2019 – 2020 I was District 5 Sr. Vice President and I have learned a lot from District 5 President Pam Tracey. She has been Mentoring me to be District 5 Auxiliary President for 2020 -2021. During the 2019 – 2020 year I help my Auxiliary (5356) President Peggy Couch with doing reports, going to places she couldn’t go to, and she has also been Mentoring me by letting me conduct our regular monthly meeting.
Inclosing I would like to say Thank You to all that have mentored me and helped me learn everything I have learned the last few years. I really hope to be a good District 5 Auxiliary President for the 2020 -2021 year. FIVE IS STILL ALIVE!!!
