Ladd Legion and Auxiliary members hand out candy

LADD — Ladd American Legion and Auxiliary members, along with Santa and Mrs. Claus, greeted and handed out bags of candy to more than 100 big and little boys and girls at the Ladd Christmas Walk. They enjoyed Christmas music, lots of cookies, candy canes and cocoa.

Photographer Jennifer Miller took pictures of more than 50 singles and/or groups with Santa and Mrs. Claus. There were 80 children who signed up to win a reindeer.  The lucky winners were Sophie Verucchi and Bobby Groleau. The Christmas wreath was won by Virginia McNally.

Anyone interested in joining the Legion or Auxiliary can contact Marilyn Pavinato at 815-894-2047 or Mary Konieczny at 815-894-2972.
