LADD — The Ladd American Legion Auxiliary Post 938 met on Oct. 22.
The unit will sponsor the Americanism essay contest Grades 7-8 at Ladd Grade School. This year’s topic is how would I improve our form of government. Members decided to sponsor a Poppy poster contest with fifth-graders at Ladd Grade School in the spring. Junior high school students at Ladd, Dalzell and Cherry will fold pocket flags for front line soldiers. The unit is involved in six different community and veterans projects.
The next meeting is the Christmas party. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 20, and the meeting starts at 6 p.m. There will be a collection of items for the LaSalle Veterans Home. A prize for the best bad will be given. For the gift list or to make a reservation for the dinner, contact Marilyn Pavinato at 815-894-2047 or Geri Devert at 815-894-2269.
