HACKENSACK — Hackensack American Legion Auxiliary Unit 202 President Char Wilkes along with Nancy Albrecht, Sue Capelle, Shirley Frederick, Maryellen Morley, Diana Slinkard, Shirley Troske and Donna Williams attended the 88th annual fall conference Oct. 26-28 in St. Cloud, hosted by the American Legion Convention Corporation.
State President Sharon Cross was the presiding officer. For her department president’s projects, Cross chose to purchase two player pianos, one for Bemidji and another for Montevideo, as the Preston veterans home already has a piano.
She hopes to raise $18,000 for each piano. Any funds over and above the cost of the pianos would go to the Preston veterans home.
Throughout the conference, the department chairmen presented their programs for this auxiliary year. “Just Ask” sessions gave the membership the opportunity to ask questions on the various programs.
Others addressing the conference were Northwestern Division Vice President Karen Susag, Department of MT.
Hackensack Legion Post 202 members attending the Legion conference at the same time were Rob Albrecht and Dennis Dusoski.
