Only one Gold Star Mother remains alive in the Wat-Kim-Valley V.F.W. Auxiliary: Eileen Hennen. At their monthly meeting, this Monday, the group honored her with a cake. Hennen learned on Mother's Day 42 years ago that her son had died in Vietnam.
The group meets at 10 a.m. the second Monday each month, at Hilltop Health Care Center in Watkins. They're always looking for new members. (Call Liz Unterberger at (320) 764-2500 or Melody Garding at 764-7453.)
