Thank You

 

The American Legion Ellis-Geddes-Levitt Post 102 and American Legion Auxiliary Unit 102 of Gilmanton wish to thank all those who attended our Memorial Day services and activities on Sunday, May 27, 2018.

 

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all those who donated to the sale of poppies.  Red poppies represent a symbol of those who have died at war and the proceeds are used specifically for the benefit of veterans. 

 

The Gilmanton school seventh grade class holds an essay contest each year about the meaning of Memorial Day, and the American Legion Auxiliary of Gilmanton is proud to sponsor this essay contest with a cash award.  Louie Laurendeau was this year’s winner and proudly read his essay during the ceremonies.  To all our veterans, Thank You for your Service.

 

We hope to see all of you at Old Home Day on August 18th.
