One vet and 30 ladies craft good deeds

One veteran, Warren Ike Walter, and 30 women worked on an American Legion Auxiliary VA Hospital and Rehab project Wednesday, Feb. 9, at the American Legion clubroom in New Prague. The group worked from noon to 8 p.m. stuffing heart pillows, neck pillows and tying quilts to VA Hospital specifications.

Many of the women helping were members of the American Legion Auxiliary and the VFW Auxiliary in New Prague. However, others came to volunteer their help, including two high school students.

Heart pillows are used for all abdominal surgeries at VA medical centers.
