VFW Auxiliary 257 is currently enrolling new members for the 2020-2021 year. We meet on the first Monday night of each month at the Post home on the corner of First and Pine streets in El Dorado Springs. To be eligible for membership you must be a close relative of a member of the military who served in overseas combat. Please contact the Auxiliary President for more information on eligibility. Private message to Linda Bartkoski.
Among the benefits of becoming a member of the VFW Auxiliary is the Continuing Education Scholarship. The VFW Auxiliary is proud to offer a $1,000 Continuing Education scholarship to members, their spouse, or son or daughter who wish to further their education by pursing a college degree at a vocational/technical school.
One (1) scholarship will be presented each year to a selected candidate in each of the four (4) VFW Auxiliary Conferences.
Scholarship applicants must be 18 years of age or older. The VFW Auxiliary member must have been a member of the VFW Auxiliary for one (1) year prior to application. Previous national winners are not eligible. Applications must be submitted to VFW Auxiliary National Headquarters in February so check with the local Auxiliary for local deadlines to apply.
