On Aug. 7th, members of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary Unit #285 met to discuss their plans for the upcoming year. In attendance were Gail Coldiron, Leta Durst, Sherry Alm, Carlita Jordan, Fae Danz and the Auxiliary’s newest member, Nancy Laycock.
The business discussed included the plans for The American Legion’s Veterans Poppy distribution on the second weekend of November, a review of educational materials provided by The American Legion for school age children, and the Auxiliary’s scholarship, which will be awarded again in April, 2009. Also, the members voted to make donations to the Mason Senior Center, the Food Bank and Bluebonnet CASA as well as the USO DFW, located at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, and, the Fisher House Foundation, for the specific support of the Fisher Houses at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.
