Huron, SD, students receive dictionaries from Auxiliary

American Legion Auxiliary # 7 distributed dictionaries to third graders at seven elementary schools in Huron, SD. Sharon Jones and Mavis Leif delivered the dictionaries this year in January. The group enjoys this project for the children.

Here is a sample of the thank-you letters the Auxiliary received from the children:
