VFW auxiliary to celebrate Statue of Liberty


Members of the Yingling-Ridgely Ladies Auxiliary #7472 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars will attend the 107th birthday celebration of the Statue of Liberty on Oct. 28.

The National Organization of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars has, for 57 years, celebrated the dedication of the Statue of Liberty, which was in 1886.

Each year, the Department of Maryland Ladies Auxiliary sponsors a bus trip for this program. Members from all over the nation come to the dedication, bringing their state colors.

The national organization has presented gifts to help support programs involving the statue, including an information booth, benches, landscaping, puppet staging, a portable stage, chairs, an intercom system and more than $160,000 toward the restoration of the museum and statue.
