Published 4:17 pm Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Its a little early to start thinking about Christmas, but the American Legion Auxiliary has to start early to make plans for the veterans.

Right now the Auxiliary is working on its annual project of writing cards to the service people. If you are interested in participating in this project, call Marjean Dahlgren who is in charge of this project and has a deadline to get cards out.

On Tuesday, December 7, the American Legion and the auxiliary will hold a joint meeting starting at 6 p.m. with a covered dish supper. The men will be supplying the meat and drinks, the women will be supplying salads, casseroles and desserts.

Edith Riley will be a guest and will give a demonstration of zumba, an exercise dance which she teaches. The group will also be collecting toiletries to distribute to veterans in the nursing homes. The unit will buy sweat shirts for them, too.

If you are interested in becoming a member call the Legion Hall on Tuesday, December 7 after 5 p.m. and check your eligibility.
