Members of the American Legion Auxiliary Tardiff-Belanger Unit #39, Madison, traditionally holds a turkey supper every November which they serve anywhere to 150 to 175 people with the proceeds to benefit local food cupboards. Because of Covid-19 restrictions, they decided to have a Turkey Pie Sale in which Hannaford, of Madison, donated some turkeys, Reny’s, of Madison, donated some pie plates, Apple Tree Bakery gave them a discount price for pie boxes and members also donated some of the items needed and their time making pies. Twenty-five turkeys later, 118 pies were made and were all sold a week before the scheduled date of pick up on November 7. The were able to donate $1,050 among five local food cupboards – Madison, Anson, Starks, Norridgewock and Solon. This is another way the American Legion Auxiliary supports the community.
American Legion Auxiliary members have dedicated themselves for over a century to meeting the needs of our nation’s veterans, military, and their families both here and abroad. They volunteer millions of hours yearly, with a value of nearly $2 billion. As part of the world’s largest patriotic service organization, Auxiliary volunteers across the country also step up to honor veterans and military through annual scholarships and with ALA Girls State programs, teaching high school juniors to be leaders grounded in patriotism and Americanism.
