American Legion Auxiliary
The American Legion Auxiliary, Leon Beatty Post 29, met Nov. 13, 2012, for their normal monthly meeting conducted by president Mary Sypherd. Sue Gilmere did opening and closing prayer. Dixie Young handed out and had sent the minutes of last meeting, and Dixie Conrad gave a treasurer report. Both were approved.
Dixie Conrad reported that more than half of the members had paid. All membership dues of $20 should be sent to the American Legion Auxiliary, P.O. Box 654, Washington, IA 52353; members are asked to do so if they have not as yet.
Old business was discussed, and members were encouraged again to keep track of volunteer hours of Americanism. Also, Mary asked them to collect manufacturers’ coupons to be sent to military families overseas. The group discussed the veterans’ supper from the night before, and all in attendance said it was a great success.
In new business, the group discussed Christmas projects, and it was decided to donate $150 in undergarments for men and women at the VA in Iowa City. Dixie Conrad, Dixie Young and Dianne will do the shopping. Various other projects and upcoming events were also discussed.
The next meeting will be at the Washington County Ambulance on Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. All members are welcome to attend, and new members are always welcome to join. The meeting was adjourned.
