Legion Auxiliary sets fundraiser

American Legion Auxiliary Unit 25, Erwin, will host a fundraiser cookout at Food Lion from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 9.
In addition to Rocky’s burgers and hot dogs, there will be drinks available and cookies for those desiring dessert.
All profits from this fundraiser will be used to purchase gifts for veterans in local nursing homes.
In addition to the Auxiliary fundraiser, visitors will have an opportunity to donate to the inaugural kickoff campaign of the Ned Lyle UCHS Scholarship Fund, sponsored by American Legion Post 25, Erwin. Donors will be rewarded with a plastic bracelet designating this scholarship fund. The scholarship is a $1,000 award to be presented annually to a deserving Unicoi County High School graduate.
Ned Lyle was a Unicoi County native and a retired sergeant major of the U.S. Army, and is the most highly decorated soldier in the history of Unicoi County.
