The Allen Schiffern American Legion Auxiliary Unit 199 met June 13, 2019, with 10 members answering roll call. Linda Kaye Payton called the meeting to order. Pam Meek gave the invocation and led us in the Pledge Of Allegiance to our Flag. The Preamble was recited by all.

Barb Hines read the minutes of the last meeting. Minutes were approved following correction. Sheridan Mires gave the treasurer’s report which was accepted as reported. There were no communications to discuss. Sheridan reminded us that we need to keep on top of our individual hours and money spent from our projects.
