Hora-Machacek Legion Auxiliary held their monthly meeting December 6th at 2pm at the Clutier post home. There were eight members present. President Veronica conducted the meeting. Colors were advanced by Eileen Hora and Pauline Sienknecht. Mary Seda said prayer and the vacant chair. Roll call was taken and last months minutes were approved as read. Treasurer Diane gave units financial report. Per county directions we will send a monetary donation to assist Nicole Clapp as candidate for National Auxiliary President after Pauline Sienknecht made a motion and seconded by Marcella Caslavka and motion carried. Our membership is currently at 51.

Diane reported on the county meeting that was November 22nd in Tama. There were 8 men and 8 women in attendance. Foreign Food Fair at IVH is March 18th. Good condition paper back books are needed at IVH. The next county meeting will be February 28th at the Memorial building in Reinbeck at 7pm. A memorial service was held for the past year deceased Legion and Auxiliary members from the units.

Veronica read an article on how the 40&8 organization got its name. The origin dates back to WW1 when soldiers were sent to France. Troops were transported in box cars. The capacity of each car was either 40 men or 8 horses, thus the name 40&8 became the trademark of the organization. They make scholarships available to those who want to become nurses.

Thinking of you card was signed and sent to Gloria Hlas. Happy Birthday was sung to Mary Seda and Vera Sevcik. Mary Seda won the door prize.

Diane will deliver the canned goods and paper products members brought to the meeting to the food pantry. A Memories Memorial service was conducted by Veronica. It was for our units past year deceased members which were Martha Untiedt and Darlene Konicek.

January 3rd will be a sewing day and monthly meeting in the afternoon. Day will begin at 9am. At noon will have a soup, salad, and sandwich lunch. Soup is already taken care of so members bring a salad, sandwiches or even a desert. Sure would like to have ladies from the community come and help. You will enjoy fellowship and good food. There are things to do that does not involve a sewing machine or hand sewing.

Veronica served a lemon and cranberry salad along with cookies for lunch.
