Veterans dinner held in West Union

 Veterans from the West Union area were treated to a holiday dinner by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Young/Moore American Legion Post 100 on Friday, Nov. 13. More than 50 people attended the annual event that pays tribute to those who have served in the armed forces. “We have a holiday dinner for the veterans at this time every year,” said Vicki Davis, the club’s treasurer. “It’s a tradition that we’d like to keep going for many years to come.”

Following the dinner West Union High School senior, Daisy Young was invited to read her winning essay, “My Vision of America.”

The local band the Blue Grass Boys provided entertainment for the evening.

Prather’s IGA provided the turkey for the carry-in dinner which was held at Venture Productions in West Union.

The American Legion Ladies Auxiliary (ALA) is the the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization.

With a membership at nearly 800,000, local American Legion Auxiliaries have a strong presence in more than 9,000 communities nationwide. The American Legion Auxiliary’s mission is to support The American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by working to improve the lives of our veterans, military, and their families, both at home and abroad.

The ALA’s across America raise and donate millions of dollars each year for veteran’s services. Last year the organization’s Poppy Program raised more than $5 million dollars; nearly $3 million was awarded in scholarships, and $1.8 million was spent aiding military families.

Through the years the American Legion and the ALA have worked to successfully win hundreds of benefits for veterans, helped military families through periods of transition, and supported important youth programs across the country. Today, members across America are helping military families cope with the effects of multiple deployments.

Anyone interested in joining the West Union ALA should contact Vicki Davis at 937-544-1421. “We are always working to increase our membership so that we can continue to provide services to our local veterans and to the community a large.”
