Pictured are Mrs. Gordon Struckman, 4847 Dupont Ave. N., junior auxiliary chairman and Linda O'Toole, 3114 Pierce St. N.E., president of the junior auxiliary, with a mitten tree. The juniors sponsored the mitten tree in conjunction with the annual Christmas party of Falldin American Legion Post 555, 3141 Central Ave. N.E., on Sunday, Dec. 11. All were invited to contribute a pair of mittens to be given to less fortunate children. Over 340 children and grandchildren of veterans and neighborhood underprivileged children were treated to a Christmas party. Entertainment was provided by a rock and roll band, "The Orphans"; Dave Lee, Pete the Penguin and all his pals from WTCN-TV; cartoons; The Amleg Clowns from Richfield American Legion Post 435; and of course, the friend of all, Santa Claus. This is another part of our child welfare program. Post chairman is Gordon Duffee, 1919 Johnson St. N.E. and auxiliary chairman is Mrs. Robert Skogquist, 2415 Polk St. N.E.
