American Legion Auxiliary meets
Unit #40 of the American Legion auxiliary held its May meeting at the American Legion Hall on May 8 with 11 members present. The meeting opened with an opening prayer by Chaplain Clem, the flag salute and reciting of the Preamble by the group.
Roll call of officers and the reading of the previous meeting minutes was given by Secretary Jean. The minutes were approved as read and the treasurer’s report was given by Treasurer Trudy. She reported we lost two more members, so we now have a membership of 60.
President Loretta reported that Poppy Day will be the 24th and we will meet at 9 a.m. at the senior center to receive the poppies to sell. Those selling from our group will be Trudy, Loretta, Jean, Renee and Estaline.

A motion was made by Trudy to amend the constitution because of the increase in dues for the senior and junior members, motion carried.
