Seated, from left to right, are Diane Wise, Gini Fuller and Jo Radcliffe of the American Legion Post 60 Auxiliary, who are enjoying conversation, at the I-80 rest area, with Susan Fisher, far right, a long haul trucker on her way to Salt Lake City.

Cookies, coffee and cider were on the menu served up to travelers by the women of the American Legion Post 60 Auxiliary, Friday, Feb. 24, at the Interstate 80 Rest Area just outside of Pine Bluffs.

One Friday every month, the auxiliary heads out to the rest area to offer goodies to travelers, donations appreciated, to raise a little money and offer a friendly Pine Bluffs hospitality to those wearied by the road.

The money raised goes to help veterans with those little items, such as socks or a warm coat, the vets may be in need of, amongst other charity. A recent expenditure went to help a junior member, Makenna Harris, 15, of the auxiliary for pin money, while touring Europe with the Wyoming Ambassadors of Music. Harris raised almost $6,000 selling crafts, baked goods, etc. on her own for the trip.

"We had money we had to figure out what to do with," said Jo Radcliffe, auxiliary secretary and treasurer.

The women do not have any set Friday for this activity, but rather choose one according to scheduling availability.
