PRINCETON — Nine ladies of American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Unit 125 of Princeton conducted their monthly veterans workshop on June 12 at the post home.

Homemade treats were used to fill the patriotic-themed sacks with homemade cookies, muffins, fruit cups, pudding cups, popcorn, candies and special diet treats.

“We do these workshops each month for the veterans in the four nursing homes we serve in the community as a way of saying “thank you” and that they have not been forgotten,” said Clara Pease, VA&R chairman.

A handmade Father’s Day card made by Kristi Johnson, granddaughter of Clara Pease, was also included in the treat sacks.

To make a monetary donation for the veterans work the Unit does, mail to Clara Pease, 321 Briar Lane, Princeton, IL 61356; or mail same to: ALA 125, 1549 W. Peru St., Princeton, IL 61356, Attn: Veterans.

A cup of coffee and sweet treats were enjoyed by all after the workshop.
