In fulfillment of our Mission, the American Legion Auxiliary adheres to the following purposes:
Spring and Summer GreeWngs from Auxiliary Unit 19. We have been busy with events to help to support our veterans. On March 18, we honored our Past Commanders/Past Presidents at a Luncheon and Memorial service. It was enjoyed by several. March 23 was Law and Order night with Scout Troop 498 doing the Flag Ceremony. Thank you to the scouts for their parWcipaWon. March 27, Diana Hagen, Evelyn Lundstrom-Weiss and Elva Schulz went to the Ortng Veterans Village to see the tiny houses that are provided for veterans to live in, they are very cozy. We then went to Lakewood for a visit and luncheon with National President Vicki Koutz, and heard about her project. Spring Conference was held at Kent Post 15 on April 2, we had joint opening with the Post, lunch and joint Memorial Service to honor the deceased members for the past 3 years, because of Covid we have not had one. April 23 , we had a potluck with the Post and stuffed 200 Poppy letters that were mailed out. For our Sew and Chat Days we have been rearranging our auxiliary room and getting poppies ready for Poppy Day. We will have election of new officers on May 11 at 1:00 with installation in June.
