PERU — Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary 2688 of Peru had two regular meetings on July 11 and 24. Janelle Fletcher, president, presided over the meetings. There were officer meetings prior to each meeting. The state woman’s conference is going to be in Peoria on Sept. 6 and 7. A group from the Auxiliary will attend on Sept. 7.
A note was received from Marilyn McKee. Her 35-year pin was mailed to her after the pins were passed out in December and she wasn’t able to attend. She thanked the Auxiliary for all that is done and taking the time to mail her the pin.
Cakes will be provided to the Red Cross on Sept. 3. The group donates money every year to the Red Cross. They have decided to send their donation in January or February along with our other charities.
The group has started its Savory Foods frozen cookie dough fundraiser. Orders and money will be taken up to Sept. 23. The orders will come in Oct. 23.
The Retired Eagles Activity Club (REAC) meets monthly for lunch. Cheryl Kelish is the chairman of this part of the Auxiliary.
