If you are able to make cookies and put them in tins, or purchase them, and securely package them, please label what is in the tin...especially if they contain nuts. Please add your name, address, and email if you have one. You will probably hear from the sailors!

We will also be sending a red/white/blue afghan made this year at the "Eleanor Roosevelt Knit-In" to the Commander, who this year is a female!!

Please bring your cookies/candy to the Hyde Park Town Hall on December 5th before noon to ship them out by the American Legion.
