American Legion Auxiliary


The American Legion Auxiliary met Nov. 19 at the Legion Post Home. It was reported that the first two food raffles have been held and were quite successful. Raffles are held Friday nights from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Post Home, and you do not have to be present to win. Just drop by and purchase a few tickets or obtain tickets from members during the week.

Some of the items to be raffled in the coming weeks are an apple pie, banana bread, a cherry cheesecake, a smoked turkey and a dill onion rye bread. The proceeds from the raffles go to the Christmas year-round project for the VA Hospital in Cheyenne.

The Fishing Derby concession project was discussed and several members volunteered for duties in preparation for that event. More discussion will take place at the Dec. 17 meeting.

Mid-winter conference will take place in Rawlins Jan. 24 and 25, 2014. Several members of the auxiliary plan to attend. We hope to have a good turnout from Unit 54 to support the new post in Rawlins.

Members of the auxiliary are urged to get their 2013-2014 dues paid so we can meet our second goal. A portion of the dues goes to the local unit for operating expenses. The auxiliary is providing the side dishes to help with the Thanksgiving Dinner, to be held at the Legion Post Home on Thanksgiving Day.
