Auxiliary Unit 94 meeting
Posted: Friday, August 15, 2008 2:26 pm
wcp It appears that the cooks of American Legion Post 94 try each month to prepare a better dinner than they prepared the month before. The food they prepare seems to indicate that they like to cook. Whether it is true or not, we had a very delicious dinner at our July meeting. Thank you, Legionnaires! Following the dinner, President Sandra Klutts called the meeting to order and expressed a welcomed to the group. She then asked Chaplain Janice Alford to give the devotional. Due to plane trouble, Secretary/Treasurer Shirley Alexander was unable get home from a trip in time to attend the meeting. As a result there were no minutes and treasurer’s report of the last meeting. It was reported that Becky Taylor, a member, had entered a hospital in Jackson for some treatment. Since then it was also reported that she had died. She will be missed at the meetings and the Auxiliary members extend sympathy to her husband, Murray. President Klutts reminded the members about getting articles to her by Friday that are to be sent to Jessica Darnell Darrow who is serving in Iraq. She is the daughter of Trent Darnell and the granddaughter of Eulane Darnell, a deceased member of Post 94. The members were reminded that dues are due in July. Our membership was increased by one at the meeting. She is Regina Rainwater, and the members heartily welcome her into our unit. She came to Weakley County in 1992 and resides in Greenfield with her husband, John, a member of Legion Post 94. Regina was a nurse for 30 years and the couple is now enjoying retirement. It was good to see Adele Babyak and her daughter, Brenda Biggs, at the meeting. Adele has been a member for 50 or more years. It is hoped that she and her daughter will be able to attend each future meeting. Some of the older members who used to attend regularly are missed. The next meeting will be the third Thursday in August. It would be good to see our newer members in attendance as well as some of the older members who have not been coming regularly. Some of our members are unable to attend because of health reasons, but they show their loyalty and support of the Auxiliary by paying their dues. By doing so, they are helping to support the programs.
