American Legion Auxiliary

The next general meeting of the American Legion Auxiliary will be held on April 18 in Clubhouse 3, Room 1, at 1:30 p.m.

This is an important meeting, as the election of officers will be a main topic of discussion. All members have a voting right, but voting only takes place at a general meeting. The final voting will take place in May. End-of-the-year topics will be discussed as well. All members are encouraged to attend the meetings in April, May and June especially.

Flags are available for purchase for $10 from Geri Mc-Nulty. The Auxiliary encourages the community to fly a flag especially on the patriotic holidays that are coming up. To purchase a flag, call McNulty at (562) 675-1725.

May is National Poppy Month. Phyllis Pierce, the Auxiliary’s poppy chairperson, is taking names of those who will visit stores and distribute poppies during the month of May. This is the Auxiliary’s major fundraiser for veterans. All money received will be spent to help veterans and their families. Call Pierce to volunteer at (562) 598-3743.

The Auxiliary is beginning to make the poppies for next year’s distribution and asks anyone who is interested to help on Wednesday, April 20, at 10 a.m. in Clubhouse 1. Call Piece to volunteer at (562) 598-3743. Volunteers do not have to be a member.
