AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY

Auxiliary News …

A big “Thank You” to all the members who donated

Expo Dry Erase markers, #2 pencils, and large boxes of

Kleenex to fulfill our pledge of “10 for Education” in

honor of American Education week. These items were

presented to Eastridge Elementary School. If you didn’t

have a chance to shop for these items and still want to participate, we will gladly

accept your donations at our December 10th meeting.

Speaking of our December meeting, we will have an abbreviated business

meeting and then be playing card bingo and enjoying Christmas cookies and

coffee with American Legion Post 3. This is becoming a December tradition and

one that members enjoy. The small gifts for winners are donated by Auxiliary

members.

Our Auxiliary unit does not meet in January, but some members will be going

to Kearney for Nebraska’s Mid-Year Conference at the Ramada Inn, January 10-

12.

We’ll resume monthly meetings in February and hope you will join us at the

Elks Lodge on Tuesday, February 11.
