Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By He­len Kester

The mem­bers of the San­taquin Amer­i­can Le­gion Aux­il­iary #84 are hav­ing a draw­ing for a beau­ti­ful pa­tri­otic quilt for the ben­e­fit of “Fisher House” at the V.A, Hos­pi­tal.

The draw­ing will take place at the Miss San­taquin Booth at the San­taquin Or­chard Days cel­e­bra­tion at 2 p.m. on Satur­day, Aug. 1.

Tick­ets may be pur­chased from Aux­il­iary mem­bers or Miss San­taquin or you may con­tact pres­i­dent Chris Richins at 801-754-1131, Tick­ets will be on sale at the booth in the park right up un­til the time of the draw­ing.

Miss San­taquin Sa­vanna Gillies has cho­sen to help work for vet­er­ans as her ser­vice pro­ject dur­ing her year as queen. She has joined the San­taquin Aux­il­iary Le­gion Unit.

The Fisher House pro­vides a place for vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies to stay, free of charge, while the vet­eran is re­ceiv­ing treat­ment at the VA Hos­pi­tal. Many vet­er­ans have to travel great dis­tances for med­i­cal care as the hos­pi­tal serves all of Utah plus parts of Wy­oming, Ne­vada, Idaho, Colorado and Mon­tana. Dur­ing dif­fi­cult times, the home is a source of com­fort and com­pas­sion to the vet­er­ans as their fam­i­lies are able to be with them. The house is sup­ported en­tirely by do­na­tions. _____________________________ “Re­mem­ber to serve your neigh­bor on a daily ba­sis. To­gether we can cre­ate a world where we love and sup­port each other. Ser­vice is one of the few keys to liv­ing a happy and pro­duc­tive life.”
