The turkey pie sales were so popular last year, members of the American Legion Auxiliary Tardiff-Belanger Unit #39, Madison, decided to sell them again. Recently they made and sold turkey pies (162 to be exact) with the proceeds to benefit local food pantries. Reny’s of Madison donated 100 pie plates, Apple Tree Bakery gave discounted price for the pie boxes, along with members donating turkeys and many of the items needed such as flour, vegetables, shortening, etc., and their time making pies. After expenses, a total $2,295 was raised and was donated to five local food cupboards. 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 Dirigo State programs, teaching high school juniors to be leaders grounded in patriotism and Americanism.
