Christmas is now a month behind us and the bands aren’t playing and the crowds of well-wishers are diminished, but our veterans are still in the Durham VA Medical Center.  Who will remember them?

The answer from Chapel Hill VFW Post 9100 Ladies Auxiliary was loud and clear, “We will!”  The ladies put together Valentine’s Day gift packages at their February meeting.  Glenn Sumner, Post Auxiliary President arranged for the project as part of the February meeting.  She announced, “I am now ready to have some fun Tuesday night.  Hope you can all be there.  The VA Hospital is in great need of tolietries for the women vets.  I have bought some Valentines type bags (24) and various lotions, toothpaste, and brushes, etc.,  for us to fill on Tuesday night.  Got some Valentine ribbon and cards we can fill out.”  And that they did.  Mark Sumner, World War II vet and Glenn’s husband, carried the gift packages to the Durham VAMC.  Linda of the Voluntary Services Office at the Durham VAMC took delivery and rewarded us with a beaming smile.

This is just one example of what our Ladies Auxiliary is doing for our hospitalized veterans.  In December they delivered ten warm winter coats for VA outpatient or homeless veterans.
