Cassadaga Legion Auxiliary Installs Officers

CASSADAGA — The Cassadaga Legion Auxiliary recently held their 2018-19 officer installation banquet at the Stockton Hotel with 15 members and one guest attending. Chaplain Paula Pattison gave the opening prayer.

After dinner Pattison opened the meeting in regular fashion with the Pledge of Allegiance, the Auxiliary Preamble and a moment of silence for our fallen soldiers. Secretary Carol Baker read the minutes of our previous meeting, accepted as read. Correspondence was read by the Secretary.

Committee reports were as follows:

¯ Pattison reported she had no notices of illnesses for the past month, but noted that two memorial services were coming up and they would be receiving phone calls for food donations.

¯ Junior member Maddie Hilliker has earned three more patches.

¯ Membership is at about 90 percent for the year. Sally Lawson is still accepting 2018 dues. Dues for 2019.

The rummage and bake sale in May was a great success. Thanks was given to those that donated items and those that brought items.

A community “National Night Out” will be held Tuesday, Aug. 7, to honor local police and fire departments. A demonstration will be held for children. It will be held at the Cassadaga Beach or community building.

The meeting ended with the installation of Unit 1280’s 2018-19 officers. They are: Bev Speelberg, president; Bonnie Vari, first vice president; Lauren Sharp, second vice president; Carol Baker, secretary; Sue DeGolier, treasurer; Paul Pattison, chaplain; and Lynn Moeller, Sgt. at arms.

The group will next meet on Aug. 14 for their summer get-together. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
