Letter: Blessed

— American Legion Auxiliary Unit 112 and the whole American Legion family of Dalton would like to thank the community for their support in parking with us during the North Georgia Fair. We realize that with free parking also available we are blessed to have so many willing to help us with the Auxiliary’s main fundraising project of the year.

This year, 27 volunteers worked during the 10-day fair and raised $3,800. The money will be used for our local veterans projects, buying blankets and other necessities, a food pantry for veterans and active duty families, breakfasts and lunches provided at the VA Clinic, Girl’s State participation, nursing scholarships and more.

We hope everyone will join us for the Veterans Day Parade downtown at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, and for lunch afterwards at Post 112 on Glenwood Avenue.
