Auxiliary holds workshop

PRINCETON — American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Unit 125 of Princeton conducted its April veterans workshop April 10 at the Legion post home.

Six members of the unit filled 32 treat sacks were filled with fresh fruit, snack chips, special diet food, candies, cookies, Rice Krispie treats and doughnuts.

The members of the unit fill treat sacks each moth for the veterans they serve in four local nursing homes each month as a way to thank you and to remember them for all they have done for our country, according to VA&R chair Clara Pease.

Monetary donations can be mailed to Clara Pease, 321 Briar Lane, Princeton, IL 61356, or to ALA 125, 1549 W. Peru St., Princeton, IL 61356, Attn: Veterans.
