AUXILIARY NEWS Jun/Jul/Aug 2019
The Memorial Day Breakfast at the Brownsville Community Club was well attended. There were between 275-300 breakfasts served. A large and delicious breakfast was catered by Anita’s Log Cabin. Delicious coffee cakes and tortes were furnished by Auxiliary Members.
Badgers Girls state representatives this year are Amber Kutsche representing Campbellsport High School, Marin Reed, Lomira, and Emily Bakri, Oakfield. They will be attending the conference at the University of WI Oshkosh, during the week of June 17, 2019. These girls, who are Juniors in High School, will focus on the various aspects of state government. The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 347 is proud to sponsor two representatives, and The Oakfield Lions Club sends the third student. The young women have been invited to our regular meeting on August 15, 2019. They will share information about their experiences at Badger Girls State.
The Poppy Project, despite the inclement weather, was successful. We wish to thank the Piggly Wiggly Grocery, Diner 67, and Cole’s Lomira BP, for allowing our members to be stationed at their businesses, to receive donations for this worthy cause. Through the generosity of many, over $600.00 was collected to be used for veterans and their families. Those who helped out this year were, Sharon Zinke, Jane Joas, our Junior Member, Maddilyn Joas-Pauls, Don Harter, Athena LaVallee, and Barb & Larry Ledman. Thanks to all who helped.
At our May Meeting, we voted to purchase dinners for 10 veterans, to be enjoyed at the annual King Day.
