(Told by Marcia Stalter)
What a wonderful teaching experience we had today at our Junior Auxiliary meeting!!! A gentleman came in looking for help. He asked if he could have a couple of our cookies we had for snacks. Something made me follow him outside and ask him what kind of help he needed. He said he was traveling from Montana to Pennsylvania and only had change left in his pocket. He also told me his was an ex Marine. I told him to wait while I went back in the Post building. I informed the girls and the other adults that were there what the situation was and we gathered a container of our snacks , a can of pop, and $100 to give him. When Barb and I took it out to him...he got tears in his eyes and thanked us. Barb and I were both teary to. We gave him a hug and told him "God Bless You"!!! What an awesome feeling we had inside and what an awesome lesson for our Juniors!!!!
