Issue Date: February 11, 2015
Amberg--To date over 60 double fleeced blankets have been completed by the Amberg American Legion Auxiliary Unit 428. The ladies, with president Patricia Boshen and Treasurer Marge Brabender as chair have met at the Amberg Town Hall/Community Center for several weeks to finish them.
The material cut starting on Tuesday, Jan. 13 following a special meeting. The group has put in many hours on the project from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. daily. The volunteers will continue working on the blankets until there is no longer any material left. Five blankets will go to the Amberg Fire and Rescue Department and the remainder between the Wounded Warriors project and Landstuhl Hospital in Germany.
