American Legion Auxiliary news

August 4, 2017
Traer Star-Clipper

The American Legion Auxiliary ladies held their annual potluck meeting at 6 p.m. on July 18, 2017. We had our two Girls State ladies give their talk at the beginning. Olivia Schrier and Holly Rigel reported on some of their experiences and enjoyments of their week at Drake in Des Moines.

A delicious array of food was consumed by all 21 of us.

President Kathy Stammer held the meeting after we all ate. Chaplain Diane Owens said grace before the meal and after the meeting. Seven officers answered roll call. Minutes and treasurer's report were read and approved.

Correspondence from Marg. Baker family. Sent $100 memorial.

Vi Barge reported on the bloodmobile - 47 units were gathered, goal was 52.

IVH Picnic is August 5: chicken, tomatoes & onions, cukes, pies, potato salad.

Dues are $25 for seniors and $4 for juniors.

We're kicking around ideas to get more attendance at our meetings, such as starting at 6 p.m. and eating before the meeting. If you have any ideas, please share! Thank you.

No meeting in August - enjoy your summer! Membership dinner in September.

For God and country, bless our veterans and their families.
