Auxiliary will hold workshop on Wednesday

PRINCETON — American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Unit 125 of Princeton will conduct its annual Christmas bag workshop for local veterans at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at the post home. For a list of needed items for the workshop call Clara Pease, chairman, at 815-872-0430.

The gift bags will be filled with various items, including the “Gifts to Yanks Who Gave” (GTTY) gift items that are made available to the Unit through donations to the Legion “GTTY” program. The program has been in place since 1944 for hospitalized veterans of World War II, Korean and other conflicts where U.S. soldiers are needed.

The Unit prepares treat sacks for the local veterans in four nursing and retirement homes in the area every month and the December Christmas Gift bag workshop is a special time for the Unit and the veterans. Monetary donations are always welcome for this and all other veterans projects and can be sent to chairperson Clara Pease at 321 Briar Lane, Princeton, IL 61356 or send same to American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Unit 125, 1549 W. Peru St., Princeton, IL 61356, Attn: Veterans.
