AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY
Dear Members, I hope you are keeping safe and well. I would like to say “thank you” to all the American Legion and Auxiliary members who donated food for the VA Clinic and the Lincoln Food Bank. I delivered 16 boxes worth $40 each, and that amounts to a $640 donation for our veterans. I wish I could leave more at the VA Clinic, but they just do not have room for storage and no longer hold a Food Bank for veterans.
Now to the future. The American Legion Auxiliary has been holding County and District Meetings. The county meeting was held February 23rd at Hickman. On March 12th, the District 12 meeting will be held in Hickman at their Community Building in downtown Hickman. Registration starts at 8:00 AM, and the joint meeting begins at 9:00 AM. Lunch will be $12.00, and registration is $2.00. In February, we picked girls from the Lincoln area schools to attend Cornhuskers Girls State. Happily, Girls State will be held in person at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln starting June 5. The cost for Girls State is $400 per girl. In March, we will celebrate the American Legion’s Birthday, which is their 102nd. And, we in the Nebraska American Legion Auxiliary will have our 100- Year Birthday. Happy Birthday to all! Elections for new officers will be held during the May meeting, and Lincoln Unit 3 will participate in Memorial Day services at Wyuka Cemetery. So, members of Lincoln Unit 3. Have you paid your 2022 dues? All the things we do for our community and our veterans depend on your dues. Help the unit make this happen. I would like to invite you to our unit meetings. You have a say in what we do at our meetings and want you to understand the programs of the Auxiliary. We could always need your help and ideas. Happy Spring! For God and Country,
Barbara Skillman President, Lincoln Unit 3
Lincoln Unit 3 President
