After their bi-monthly meeting, Maryland Gold Star Mothers Chapter members were joined by American Legion Post 60 Auxiliary members who assisted with the assembly of gift bags for hospitalized veterans at three Maryland VA Medical Centers: Baltimore, Loch Raven and Perry Point. The Maryland Chapter members included Janice Chance, Donna Robinson, Paula Davis, Theresa Karlson, Khadidja Keita, Sandra Johnson Carter, Tracy Miller and Synthia Carter. Auxiliary members included Denean Robinson, Denise Person, and Peggy Purcell. Gift bag items included spiral notebooks, patriotic pens, word puzzle books, toiletry items, stress balls and stuffed bears. A total of 240 bags were assembled (80 Baltimore, 80 Perry Point and 80 Loch Raven). They will be distributed at each center next week during the “National Salute To Veterans Week” from February 13th – 16th.  Maryland Gold Star Mothers are grateful to Commander Luby for allowing them to use the Post to have their bi-monthly meetings as well as a place to prepare for our service project and to have special events. The members are also grateful to the Auxiliary members for their continued support.
