The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 25 was presented with a Unit 25 Auxiliary banner at their Thursday night meeting. This banner will help with their recruitment and fundraisers. Grandmothers, mothers, sisters, spouses, and direct and adopted female descendants of honorably discharged Veterans or active duty military can join the American Legion Auxiliary. Female veterans can also join the American Legion Auxiliary and many female Veterans are dual members of both the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary. If you know of a female relative of a Veteran who would like to honor their service by joining the American Legion Auxiliary, ask them to contact me or Auxiliary Unit President Sylvia Norris at 701-404-3143 for more information. 
As always, Post 25 is your Post. Do not hesitate to contact me regarding your thoughts and ideas for improving our Post.”
