Santaquin American Legion Auxiliary raising money
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.
