There will also be a raffle. First prize is a basket filled to the brim with home goods to complement and "comfortize" your home. Second prize is a beautiful hand-crafted afghan. This year's colors are a blend of variegated grays resulting in a very beautiful and warm accent. For a third prize this year, the Auxiliary is very pleased to offer a hand-painted Lupine Tea Set. Visitors can view the progress on our Veterans at Rest in Gilmanton project. All Veterans should receive the honor of recognition for their service and this honor should extend to their final resting place. This project will record Veteran burials within the community so that the Gilmanton Legion may place an American Flag at the grave each spring. Since public records on veteran burials are incomplete, we are asking the public to share information with us on Veterans buried in Gilmanton, both recent and older burials, including name, burial location and other relevant information that may be available.
