From The Auxiliary
Our Scholarship Drive is underway. Thanks to all those who have contributed your $25.00 donation, and thanks to all who intend to send in a check. Graduating Seniors will be sending in their applications to be read and interviews to be scheduled.
Our new Veterans’ Chairman Barbara Saul is working with American Lake Veterans Hospital-Rehab_Housing program and the Clothes Closet there. We are sending them a box of Men’s coats and other items they need. There is an ongoing request for NEW men’s socks, men’s underwear and men’s tee shirts, variety of sizes. If anyone would like to help us fill more boxes with these items, there will be a drop-off box at the Legion hall that you can leave things there. We would like to support our Veterans who are in need of assistance. AND if anyone is going down I-5 to that area and would take a box to American Lake facility, that would be totally appreciated!
Do we have any “knitters” out there?? Another thing on the list is stocking hats and mittens. We have the Yarn – a pretty blue – if you want to knit something give a call and I will get the yarn to you for this project. Call 376-3618.
Our unit is sending a box to Fircrest with colored paper, pots and seeds to plant and a variety of balls, etc for the residents who live there.
Carol Clark’s Memorial Service will be May 13 at the Legion. She was our longest continuous member of Post 93. Afterwards there is a Potluck with finger food.
We are currently working on the slate of officers for next year. We are in desperate need of a Secretary. If this is something you might be interested in – Please let us know. Eloise Monson is retiring from being our Treasurer/Membership. She has held this position for many, many years. Thank you Eloise for your dedication.
Memorial Day is May 29th. Service at Olga Cemetery at 11:00am. Watch for our poppies to be out and about that weekend.
May meeting nights: May 10th Board Meeting and May 24th General Meeting.
