Mid-winter has come and gone and many of us are looking forward to more spring like weather. If you have members who have passed, please send me their information so that I can include it for the mailing and our 6th District Convention.

Thank You.


Do You Want to Fast this Lent?

Fast from hurting words.

Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.

Fast from anger and be filled with patience.

Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope.

Fast from worries and have trust in God.

Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.

Fast from pressures and be prayerful.

Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy.

Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others.

Fast from grudges and be reconciled.

Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.

Quilts for Bemidji Veterans Home

We are hoping that your unit has had some discussion on the idea of making a quilt for the new Veterans

Home that is planned to open in 2023. At the Past Presidents luncheon hosted by Kimball last fall the

Hackensack Unit #202 challenged 6 th District Units to join this project.

The quilt finished size is 70 X 90 and to be made using patriotic materials. Can be quilted or tied. Nice to have

a tag sewn on lower backside corner with American Legion Auxiliary, your town and unit number on it.

Would like to hear from your unit over the next several months if your unit is interested in taking part in this.
