I want to thank the Auxiliary and Post members who helped with the Buddy Poppy Sales: Candy Bohjanen-Hammitt, Daryl and Brenda Tvrdik, Nancy Ost and Cam Loch. We had 4 places that we collected donations: Post Office, Pete’s County Market, Mills Fleet Farm and Plaza Discount Liquors. The Card sales went really good. There are 225 Buddy Poppy Cards around town and close to Alexandria. If you are in a business that has a Buddy Poppy Card please thank them for supporting our Veterans. Business were very generous in supporting our Veterans and we need to let them know we appreciate it.
We voted to put an American flag and stand in the chapel at Knute Nelson Home. They share with Grand Arbor and now they will both have one.

We have decided to change the date for our Salad Luncheon. It will be on Tuesday, July 29 from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. We will be making the salads in the Post kitchen. We cannot bring made salads in or bars. We are going to need Auxiliary Sisters to help make salads and donate money to pay for the cost of the ingredients. Thank you for helping make this a successful fund raiser for cancer aid and research and help with our cancer fund.
