NEWS, MOUNT PULAS- ILLINOIS LEGION AUXILIARY AN ACTIVE GROUP The American Legion Auxil- iary, Department of Illinois, Unit to Ryman.Fuiten Post No. 447, meets the first Monday of each month in the American Legion Home. The membership committee planned a card party for mem- bers and prospective members, combining the membership drive and a social evening. The mem- bership is now 77. At the July meeting all girls who had formerly attended Illini Girls State and their mothers, were invited, at which time Mariann Dana, last year's dele- gate, gave her report of Girls State and all the girls discussed their respective stays at Girls State in former years. Since the State Convention was held at the same time as the annual Fall Festival, dele- gates were sent to District Con- vention instead of the State. The Fall Festival represents our main source of income, that being a food stand in conjunc- tion with the Legion bingo stand. Members prepare the food as well as serve it. The auxiliary was represented in the Fall Festival parade by a float on which former "Girls Staters" rode, dressed in formals and presenting a pretty picture against the patriotic red, white and blue color scheme. A Christmas party was held at the Legion home for members and their small children. Santa Claus appeared with gifts for everyone and a lunch was serv- ed. Each year the Legion Post tak- es charge of filling and deliver- ing baskets of food to needy families of the town and a do- nation of $10.00 was made to- ward this worthy cause. The Past President's Parley is an active group which meets each month and works in con- junction with the auxiliary. They made ash tray favors and fold- ed newspaper bags to be sent to St. John's Sanitarium in Spring- field. Tray favors were sent to the Rehabilitation Chairman. Members went to Lincoln State School and Colony and gave a party for veterans there, one evening. They presented musical numbers which the patients en- joyed and then served a lunch which seemed to please them even more. A potluck supper was held to celebrate the Legion Post birth- day party. Legion and Auxiliary members and their families at- tended and enjoyed a sociable evening. A public card party was spon- sered as a benefit for the Child Welfare Work. $40.00 was sent in as a result of this party. A chairman was appointed to oversee the saving of coupons by members and sending them i in. Members sewed carpet rags at various times throughout the year and these were sent in by the Rehabilitation chairman. A benefit basketball game was sponsored by the unit for the Polio Drive from which $136.75 was derived as a contribution and turned over to the local Polio drive chairman. This year another new book was added to the library shelf under Community Servic De- partment. Gold Star Mothers received cards from the unit sent by the chairman of that committee. They were also furnished trans- portation to Memorial Day serv. ices held at the Mount Pulaski cemetery. Mrs. Pearl DeVote, District Di- rector, attended the March meet- ing and gave a very nice talk on district activities. Our unit was awarded second place in the district for work done in community service this year. Poppy sales amounted to $88, a smaller amount than usual, due to unfavorable weather. The Poppy Chairman made an ap- propriate window display to make people "Poppy-minded." Members, as well as boys and girls, sold poppies on Poppy Day. Two long-time members have passed away  Mrs. Herman Hahn and Mrs. Tom Moore. Mrs. Hahn had served as honorary chaplain for many years. Donations of $11 was made to- ward Child Welfare, in addition to the $40 sent to Normal Soldiers and Sailors Children's Home Re. ceiving Cottage as a result of the card party during the year. $75 was donated to the Re- INSURANCE OF EVERY DESCRIPTION Phone 46 Mount RulaskJ IIL A Beautilul Service Our years of experience give you services of taste and dignity in a chapel large enough to accommo- date the bereaved in comfort.
