Editor, the Advocate:
On behalf of American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 166, I would like to thank the merchants who allowed us to distribute poppies at our recent Poppy Day.
A special thank you is sent to Our Lady of Victory School Honor Society and its sponsor, Mrs. Meismer. You continue to help us every year, and we greatly appreciate it.
Thank you to all our American Legion and Auxiliary members who gave their time and effort to help with this project.
Thanks to all of you who made a contribution. Your donations will help purchase Christmas gifts for veterans and their spouses who reside in Victoria nursing homes. It is truly a joy to see their faces light up when they receive these gifts. Money is also sent to Audie Murphy VA Hospital in San Antonio to help purchase items for the Christmas Store, where hospitalized veterans can shop for free for their family.
We appreciate your support of our efforts.
Marguerite Griffin, Poppy Chairwoman, American Legion Auxiliary Unit 166, Victoria
