The auxiliary will also welcome new Salvation Army officers, Lts. Kyle and Sarah Madison, who were reassigned to Pine Bluff this month from Oklahoma City, replacing Lts. Bradley and Stephanie Hargis, who were transferred to Hot Springs.
Visitors and prospective members are always welcome, according to a spokesman for the group.
Dues are $10 annually and can be paid at the meeting. Anyone interested in supporting the work of the Salvation Army is invited to attend, the spokesman said.
