The Military Order of the Cooties Pup Tent 96 Auxiliary held a monthly meeting July 15 with President Patty Kucharek presiding. Micheline Wilson from Pup Tent #32 attended as a guest.
All officers were in their chairs except for trustee Carol Zielaskowski and guard Emma Liske. Acting fun chairman Dixie Weiler declared fines of 25 cents for attending and 25 cents for attending the 4th of July Parade. For those who did not attend the parade, there was a 35 cent fine, plus 10 cents for the pot.
A thank-you note was received from Joyce Oliver for the flower arrangement the auxiliary sent to her shut-in husband, Frank Oliver. She said he was very excited to be remembered.
Hospital chairman Betty Olsen thanked Barb LaMay and Judy Johnson for their help with the Wednesday bingo at Tendercare. Members voted to send $100 to the Alpena Free Clinic.
The audit report was read by Barbara Mouthaan. Dixie Weiler and Barb LaMay agreed to do the luncheon for the Grand Scratch on Sept. 13.
The auxiliary will be giving a nursing scholarship again this year. To be eligible the applicant must be accepted into the nursing program. For more information on this, call 356-1960 and ask for Barb.
Goodie bags were won by LaMay and Michilene Wilson. The 50/50 was won by Margaret Piontkowski and Gail Morrison's name was drawn for the pot, but she was absent so it carries on.
The next meeting will be Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. at the VFW Hall on Connon Street. A lunch of cake and coffee was served.
