American Legion Christmas party wraps up the year

Marengo American Legion Post 192 held
their Christmas party at Indian Oaks Park on
Thursday, Nov. 29. Commander Larry Dochterman
thanked everyone for their efforts
throughout the year. He recognized Dan Bickel
for his work organizing fundraisers, and
presented the Women’s Auxiliary with a check
for $777.13 as their portion of the recent meat
raffle fundraiser. Women’s Auxiliary president
Connie Boxleitner presented Scott Fricke of
Boy Scout Troop 163 with covers for their flags
and called for volunteers to help pack Christmas
boxes for overseas troops. Dochterman
thanked Tom Anderson for supplying the
meat for the dinner, Joe Sakowski for performing
the music for the event, and started off the
games for the evening. Prizes were awarded
and everyone professed to have had fun.
