Members of Princeton Legion Ladies Auxiliary met Feb. 12 at the Legion Hall to make the final plans for this weekend, Feb. 23 and 24. Auxiliary members will be catering two events, the Saturday evening spaghetti dinner and the Legion Zone meeting lunch on Sunday. The spaghetti dinner is a fund raiser for the Auxiliary bursary fund. Members anticipate dinner for 70, there are still some tickets available. Tickets remain on sale until Wednesday afternoon.
Work parties were arranged to do the shopping for the weekend, make the meatballs, sauce, and salad, prepare the very special door prize, the music and clean the hall after the dinner. On Sunday morning, another crew will make soup and sandwiches for the Zone lunch. This is quite a busy weekend.
There was a good turnout to the monthly Auxiliary meeting. The ladies were pleased to hear another new member, Crystal Alstad, is transferring in, and will add to new member Ruth Ferguson, who was installed at the Jan. meeting.
Members are proposing the purchase of a new cooler for the kitchen. One of adequate size is very expensive, and they hope to split the cost with the Legion.
Jean Lindsay was presented with her 40 year pin, and Gail Madill received her five year pin.
The next meeting will be on the regular date, March 12, but there was a change for May due to the provincial election using the Legion Hall on May 14. The new date for that month is May 7.
The customary tea and goodies were served following the meeting, and members continued their discussion of plans for the upcoming weekend.
