Annual Meeting of Life Members 2021

National Home Life Members gathered recently for their annual meeting. The Annual Meeting of Life Members is when we thank outgoing trustees whose terms have ended and welcome our new incoming trustees. Alongside our new trustees, the new board president is sworn in as well.

Life Members heard an update from Outgoing Board President Armithea “Sissy” Borel and enjoyed a Year-In-Review video.

This year we said goodbye to District 3 Trustee Ron Stensland and District 4 Trustee (and past Board President) Merton “Sam” Compton, both of whom were unable to be in attendance and were sorely missed. Ron and Sam were replaced by Jodi Hollinger from the VFW Department of Pennsylvania Auxiliary and Sandi Kriebel from the VFW Department of Maryland Auxiliary.

Past National Auxiliary President Sissy Borel of District 6 ended her term as president, and Steve Van Bergen of District 9 was installed as the new Board President.

This year we also said goodbye to Board Secretary-Treasurer, Garry Goff, who served in this role for 18 years.  He was replaced by Barry Wickman.
