NEW MADISON — As part of the outreach program of Unit 245 American Legion Auxiliary under the youth chairmanship of Marian Eley, members of the auxiliary and Legionnaires 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 whom with heart-warming enthusiasm, created original valentines for patients at the Dayton V.A. Hospital in appreciation of 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 veterans, building awareness of history and appreciation of the job the military does to protect the rights guaranteed under the Constitution to all United States citizens.
