Editor, the Advocate:
On behalf of American Legion Auxiliary, Unit 166, thank you to all the merchants who allowed us to distribute poppies at our recent Poppy Day. A very special thank you is sent to Our Lady of Victory School Honor Society and their sponsor, Mrs. Meismer. You continue to help us every year, and we greatly appreciate you.
Also, thank you to all our American Legion and Auxiliary members who gave of their time and effort.
Thanks to all who made a contribution. Your donations will be utilized to 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. In addition, money is sent to Audie Murphy VA Hospital in San Antonio to help purchase items for the Christmas Store where the hospitalized veterans, who are unable to go shopping, shop for free for their families.
