Our fine Post 8870 Auxiliary unit has been busy this fall and holiday season.
They participated in our semi-annual poppy drive with their own distribution point at the the Edmonds Waterfront Center. Patsy Ethridge-Neal is shown at right staffing that poppy location.
Our Auxiliary also participated in the 2023 Young American Creative Patriotic Art Contest. The annual contest began in 1979 and recognizes up-and-coming artists and encourages patriotism in youth. More than 2,500 students submitted entries and a total of $33,000 in national scholarships were awarded to 13 students in 2023.
And, of course Jo Boyett (shown at left) was on hand to help with set up and decorate for our annual Christmas party.
Keep up the good work, Auxiliary!
