Dear Members of Military Order of the Purple Heart Auxiliary Unit 776,

By now you should have all received the minutes from our last meeting in March.  At that meeting, we decided it is time to dissolve our Unit.  We are finding it difficult to get a quorum to the meetings and we are having low attendance at our activities.  

Many of us are Associate Members with Chapter 776.  We will continue to support our Chapter and their activities.  We will be sure you are aware of the meeting dates and activities of Chapter 776.  

You are welcome to come to all of the Chapter’s meetings and activities and we would love to have you as an Associate Member, if you are not already.  Please let Vikki Pietras, Secretary or I know if you would like us to keep you informed of Chapter activities at the following addresses.  If you do not notify us, we will not keep you informed.  This is an “opt-in” decision.

According to our National President, Cheryl Perez, The Membership Development Program (MDP) will send out the official closing letter to Unit members.  As per the bylaws, if 10 members want to keep the Unit open, then it can stay open.  However, that yes vote needs 10 members to commit to holding office and taking responsibility for the Unit. 

It also has a form for updating your national contact information.  It is important that they receive your information back in a timely manner in order to keep your info updated. Additionally, they will put your email address into Constant Contact (the email company) so communication can kept between national and you.  So, please return the letter from MDP.

This letter will have options regarding your membership; transfer to another Florida unit (or another Unit elsewhere in the U.S.) or become a member at large (no affiliation with a unit).

Thank you to all our members who have worked so hard to make us a terrific Unit.  Please keep in touch, as we love to hear from our Purple Heart Family.

Chapter 776 has a web site ( where you can find current information about the chapter and its activities.
