Liscomb Auxiliary talk about parade

Liscomb Legion Auxiliary Unit 87 met Sept. 2 at the Union Public Library with five ladies present. President Sharon Hatch called the meeting to order. Chaplain Dorothy Sorensen gave opening devotions. The Pledge of Allegiance and the Auxiliary Preamble were recited. A moment of silence was observed for MIA/POW and deceased veterans.

The secretary read minutes and it was approved. A get well card was signed by all for the Third District and Marshall County President Pat Williams. Hatch gave time during the meeting to pay dues and the secretary passed out membership cards for 2021-22.

Hatch spoke on the 2021 Tar Heel Parade. Sixty-three year member Sorensen rode in Hatch’s white convertible decorated with a sign and red, white and blue colors. Hatch rode with her husband Bill in a Model A car. Both threw candy to kids and American flags were passed out.

Candy Wait and Hatch attended the Third District Workshop held in Marshalltown at the Legion Post Home.

Hatch’s projects are the Auxiliary Emergency Fund and Miracle in Marshalltown. The unit gave a donation to each project. Hatch read over papers handed out at the workshop meeting. The secretary will order poppies by the October deadline.

The Third District Fall Conference will be on Oct. 2 at Radcliffe. Registration is at 7:30 a.m. The Auxiliary will meet at the Community Center.

Wait and Hatch plan to take treat sacks in September to the BCLUW Middle School teachers and staff. Oct. 5 will be the next meeting for a noon lunch at Hatch’s home in Whitten.

Sorenson read a poem, “September.” The meeting was then adjourned.
