Making a Difference while having Fun

As our 2023-2024 year ends this May, I am most grateful for the enthusiastic and talented group of board members and volunteers. You have helped us achieve record-breaking results this year. Membership is at an all-time high. Fundraising has reached a level like we have never seen. 

I am proud to announce that because of your continuous efforts, we have managed to bring more than $45,000 to a long list of benefactors. You may be very surprised at all the good that comes from your hard work. The benchmark is set very high for the coming year. We need your support, more than ever. Many of you would love to volunteer and are just waiting to be asked. So, we are asking! Help us make a difference.

We would love to have you join the team by becoming a volunteer! LEARN MORE

President's Corner

Summertime. The official start of Summer is June 20, though many consider Memorial Day the kickoff of the season. No matter which way you slice it, brace yourself. Summer is coming! For the Auxiliary, our explosive Summer Season Blasts off on May 9 with the Election of officers at the first Membership Meeting of our 2024-25 year. (Say something short about the old board, the new board, and the volunteers over the last year)

We won’t be wasting any time as we jump into our first event when we bring back the very popular, unique, Flying Pancake Breakfast on May 11, now sponsored by RetireMed. Imagine the fun of pancakes flying as we scramble to catch our own breakfast out of midair. Backyard Fridays, Holiday Picnics, Cruise-Ins and more will keep us busy until we finish the season with our biggest event of the year, ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ on September 14. We plan to celebrate our 5th Anniversary as our 5-year goal surpasses $100,000 in monies raised. Dayton-based, national restaurant group, Hot Head Burritos will join our 2024 list of sponsors that already includes Orthopedic Associates, White Allen, Crown Packaging, RetireMed, and many more. Please visit ALA598.Org for a list of businesses that deserve your support.

Something new for 2024. Many at 598 are already at or approaching Medicare age. Medicare can seem overwhelming. You’re likely being bombarded with mail and commercials about Medicare that are confusing. Don’t worry; help is here! Keep your eye on the calendar, as our friends at RetireMed will come to the Post and present quarterly information meetings, answer questions, and discuss your health insurance needs. 

“And it’s two bare feet on the dashboard, young love and an old Ford, cheap shades, and a tattoo and a Yoo-Hoo bottle on the floorboard. Perfect song on the radio, sing along ’cause it’s one we know, it’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine, it’s summertime, Sweet Summertime.” ~ Kenny Chesney
