U.S.S. Little Rock Association's

"Ladies Auxiliary"


Page last updated: 24 September, 2016

Most sailors consider it unlucky to have a woman aboard ship . . . . .  to which we say "Hogwash!"

Let it be known that the members of the U.S.S. Little Rock Association feel just the opposite when it comes to having women as part of our group.  In fact, the ladies of the Association have their own group within the Association and they contribute mightily to the morale, well-being and smooth operation of our organization. Known informally as the "Little Rocker-ettes" or the "Lady Rockers" or the "Ladies Auxiliary", these gentle-women have only one goal in mind, and that is to support the Association in whatever way they can.


The Auxiliary has the following ladies as Officers. . . .

President - Eileen Landwehr
 Treasurer - Pegge Lapore
Secretary - Marlene Schuld

NEWS from the Ladies....

Dear Little Rock Ladies,

The 2016 Reunion is now past. What a great time was had by all. Our reunion was capped off by a great auction! The results of which ended up with well over $1400.00 being contributed to the Association!  I hope we have as much success going forward in the years to come.

In order to support the Association, every year one of the highlights of our reunion is our "Tricky Tray" auction (a "ladies only" event!)  We will hold our auction while the men are having their business meeting.

A Tricky Tray auction, which you probably know,  is a combination of a raffle and an auction. The difference is that the buyers ("bidders") get to choose which prize(s) they want to win. Each buyer purchases tickets and uses them to bid on an item by putting one or more tickets in a bag beside the item(s) they are trying to win. At the end of the bidding period, one winning ticket is drawn from the bag beside each item, and the item is then given to the owner of that ticket.

To achieve success, we need each of you to bring one or more items for the auction. These items should be something "desirable"and can have any value. They can be serious or funny, useable, or a gag item. We also would like you to decorate the bag that will be used for each item. The bags will then be given to the winners.

In the past, a significant portion of the money we collect has been presented to the Association at the Saturday banquet.

We also collect annual dues of $5.00. This money is being set aside for a "special" ladies function.

If you were unable to join us at this past reunion, we really hope you can join us for the next one. Anyone with any questions can e-mail or call me.

     My phone is: 920-336-8366

We look forward to seeing each of you every year at the Little Rock reunion!

Eileen
