Hello Sixth District, hope everybody was safe and enjoyed the holidays.  With all the sanctions in place it wasn't the same. Starting the 11th of January some of the sanctions have been changed. That may help some of the posts and make it easier to hold more functions. With the Mid-Winter having to be changed, I’m looking forward to seeing you ether at Nisswa or here you on Zoom.

St Cloud Stand Down: The silence of women Veterans has become a contributor to the increase in the homelessness and suicide rates in the community. The lack of their prescription has delayed the development of programs that adequately address the needs of lady VETERANS. To fill that gap and serve the needs of all our VETERANS, the lady VETERANS Boutique adds the first ever lady VETERANS focus to the Stand Down warehouse in St Cloud MN. We are connecting females who served in the military with lady’s winter gear, clothing, accessories, toiletries, resources, manicures, pedicures, and many other services and camaraderie free of charge. Our mission is to empower, encourage, and mentor all lady VETERANS whether they are in need, at risk or homeless. Lady VETERANS deserve to be recognized and validated, that they served, and they earned it on their own, and they are veterans. Contact Kerri Schwegel at (320) 428-0578 or email standdownladiesboutique@gmail.com.
