Our local Foodland has a cool promo right now: you earn stickers for so many dollars spent. Those stickers are redeemable for small cooking pots. We warmly welcome any donation of stickers you don’t plan to use to replace our well-used Legion kitchenware! You can drop stickers off at the club room (open from 1 p.m. seven days a week) or give them to any Legion member you may encounter; they’ll pass them along. Thank you!
