To The Daily Sun,
Gilmanton Ellis-Geddes-Levitt Unit #102 of the American Legion Auxiliary extends it appreciation to the Gilmanton PTA for hosting the recent Gilmanton Holiday Craft Fair, and to our many friends and supporters who purchased great home-baked items from the Auxiliary along with raffle tickets for a chance to win a wonderful holiday/winter themed gift-basket. Ms. Ford was the winner of the raffle and was presented with a beautiful basket full of decorations, linen, holiday treats, gifts and home-good items.
As part of our Holiday-Fair participation, members also donated and collected non-perishable food items which were donated to the Gilmanton Food Pantry. Home-baked items were also donated to the Dump Run Café for their weekly community gatherings.
Members were present to provide visitors with information on our "Veterans at Rest in Gilmanton" project; the goal of which is to locate and document all veteran burials in Gilmanton to ensure that the sites receive proper honor.
The mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to further Americanism and to support veterans, military, their families and community. Fundraising is essential to the support we are able to provide during the year. The Gilmanton Holiday Craft Fair is a wonderful community event; be sure to join us in Gilmanton next year!
