President Beyke Message

It has been very unsettling and overwhelming to process all that is going on around us. We are experiencing a global pandemic while also encountering instances of horrible injustice. Polarizing politics and anger reaction are making a disturbing situation even worse. Please keep you your faith that things will get back on track.

On a good note I want to thank all our members for sending in their dues for Sept.-2019-June-2020 as we were awarded a ribbon of 100% dues participation. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! ONE AND ALL. Please help us achieve this once again by sending in your Sept.-2020- June-2021 dues as soon as you get your notices. Our goal is to achieve 100% by Christmas, please help us out again. Unit 172 STRONG


We hope to get our meeting up and running again so we can all work together on our Veterans Tray favors, we make these for 10 holidays for the 40 veterans in the care facilities on Bainbridge and in Poulsbo. When you see the poppies being presented by the Legion Members at different locations on Bainbridge please donate generously, 100% of the donations are given to our Veterans, helps with all the supplies needed for the Tray favors, as well as donations to Retsil & American Lake gift shops, USO Sea-Tac & JBLM Lounge, and Ronald McDonald House (Children’s Oncology Service of Washington) and not to mention many others. Thank you for your help in making this possible every year to give back to those that gave so much for their country and us.


I would like to be able to keep all our Auxiliary members up to date throughout the year as to what is going on and to do this, I will need your E-Mails. Please e-mail me your e-mail at: and if you have any suggestions or changes to you home address or phone numbers.


Thank you for taking the time to read my message, I pray you are staying Safe, Healthy, and keep the faith that all will be good again.
