Backus Auxiliary members to be honored for 60 years service


The Backus American Legion will honor two members of the Legion Auxiliary — Charlotte Thaler and Helen Reeve — for their 60 years of service with the Auxiliary at the Monday, April 22, business meeting.

Reeve was a charter member, a distinction Thaler missed by just a few months.

“We moved up here and my mother had joined, so I just joined. And I enjoyed it. We did a lot of different work with different people. It was just a way of helping the community,” Thaler said.
