On November 19, the American Legion Auxiliary, Glen Hill Unit 287 Auxiliary Juniors hosted an overnight event, where Juniors from around the state gathered for fun activities and worked on Americanism projects. Some of the projects were flag etiquette and making things to send to the troops. Our honorary state Junior President Chelsie Kovacs was in attendance and was given $67.00 towards her Elmobility Project. They were also honored to have the state Department President Carrie Bowerman, along with other Department members, join them for the activities and fellowship.

The American Legion Auxiliary made a donation to the Cedar Springs Community Food Pantry last week. Glen Hill Unit #287 in Cedar Springs donated two boxes of food and personal items, along with a check to the food pantry on Monday, August 1. The food was collected at a Texas Hold ‘em tournament held in Greenville at Post #101 July 21-24.

The Auxiliary works diligently to promote community involvement. The community service committee is a program within the Auxiliary that helps serve those in need and works at the neighborhood and hometown levels to meet the needs of the residents in our area. The food pantry is a good way to reach out and make an impact in our city of Cedar Springs.
