NORWAY – Stone-Smart Post 82, American Legion, Auxiliary held a June meeting with President Kim Hansen presiding.

Barbara Henley announced that on June 14, Flag Day, Karen Ellis at Guy E. Rowe School held a special program on the flag. Parents and members of Stone-Smart American Legion and Auxiliary were invited. Ellis is retiring this month. For a number of years she has had an ongoing flag program for second-graders, which the Auxiliary has supported.

Marjy Sessions noted the Auxiliary needs 103 members to make 100 percent membership. Having lost members this year, members are asked to sign up friends and family who are eligible.

Chaplain Christine Weiss will send birthday cards to veterans at Western Maine Veterans Home this month.

Scholarship Committee members Kim Hansen, Rose Moulton and Christine Weiss chose as this year’s recipients: Abigail Rogers, Myra Stevens Award; Danielle Cyr and Melissa Sessions, Stone-Smart Auxiliary Award.

Ellen Snow gave a report on items that she has donated to Community Concepts, including children’s games, books and toys, radios, bikes, scooters, sports equipment, assorted baby items and clothing. The items are mostly collected by Albert Mercuri, a member of Post 82. Snow works with Community Concepts to get the items to people in need.

Donations were voted to USO, Norway Firemen’s Relief Fund, a gift to Karen Ellis and a sum of money for Meredith Jones, who will be a Foreign Exchange student this coming year.
