NEW MADISON — As part of the outreach program of Unit 245 American Legion Auxiliary under the Children and Youth Co-chairmanship of Joan and Marian Eley, members of the auxiliary and Legion visited the fourth-grade classrooms at Tri-Village School recently.
Colored paper, stickers, paper doilies, glue and assorted art supplies were distributed to the students who, with heart-warming enthusiasm. created original valentines for patients at the Dayton Veterans Hospital, thanking them for service to their country.
Students demonstrated and practiced skills in letter writing, penmanship, social studies, history, art, spelling, and community service.
A lively question-and-answer period took place between the students and the veterans building awareness and appreciation of the job the military does to protect the rights guaranteed under the Constitution to all U.S. citizens.
