LADD — The Ladd American Legion Auxiliary Christmas party will be at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Instead of a Christmas gift exchange, they will be giving their gifts to the LaSalle Veterans residents. To donate an item to the VA home, contact Marilyn Pavinato at 815-894-2047 or Geri Devert at 815-894-2269. Items are also being collected for Operation Warm Troops. The items needed are blankets, socks and hats. The auxiliary will be sending these items to Sania Buller. This is a special project of the American Legion Auxiliary President.
To attend the meeting and dinner, call Pavinato or Devert to place an order for dinner.
The auxiliary will participate in the Ladd Christmas walk and parade on Dec. 7. The legion men will have a Santa Claus and the auxiliary will take pictures and serve refreshments. Pictures will be from 3 to 6 p.m.
