American Legion Auxiliary Unit 397 April, 2012, News

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 397 thanks all of you who made our 2nd Annual Pancake Breakfast, held March 10, 2012, such a huge success. We were so glad to see so many members of our community enjoying the chance to get together over a good breakfast. A special thanks to the members of the West San Gabriel Boys and Girls Club, Alpha Keystone Chapter, students from Mark Keppel and Schurr High, and their advisor, Alfred Mendoza, who really helped. We want to welcome our newest member Congressmember Judy Chu, who on the spot joined our American Legion Auxiliary Unit 397. We are happy to have her as part of our Auxiliary family. Thanks Congressmember Chu!
