PRINCETON — American Legion Woman’s Auxiliary Unit 125 of Princeton conducted its May veterans workshop on May 14 at the post home.

Treats included in the patriotic-themed sacks were fresh fruit, cookies, snack cakes, popcorn, hot cocoa and special diet items.

The Auxiliary conducts the workshops every month as a means of saying “thank you” to the veterans in the four nursing homes they support, including Greenfield, Colonial Hall, Liberty Village and Walnut Manor, according to VA&R chairman Clara Pease.
