Each Butler summer, ap- proximately 25,000 young women par- ticipate in Girls State sessions across the nation. Riley Butler will represent the Su- perior Auxiliary chapter.

Hardy ALA members , gather for meeting ! The Hardy American Legion Aux- iliary met last Tuesday, at the Hardy Fire Hall, with six members present. Joan Edwards, vice-president, con- ducted the meeting with the opening formalities. The secretary's report was read, corrected and approved. The treasurer's report was read and ap- proved. Both reports were placed on file. A thank you note will be sent to the Hardy American Legion for their gen- erous donation to the auxiliary to be used to help defray Girls' State ex- penses. JoAnne Edwards reported that Taylor Jensby, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kent Jensby, has been accepted to attend Girls' State. The group was reminded of these future meetings: the 95th Department Convention will be held June 25 to 28, in Kearney. The national convention will be held in Baltimore, Aug. 28 to Sept. 3. Bonnie Pedersen gave a brief report of the county and the district meetings held recently. JoAnne Edwards gave a brief report on the unit banner which was dedicated on Dec. 13, 1976. This was her president's project. This ban- ner is used every Memorial Day obser- vance. A motion was made, seconded and carried to donate $20 to the Chil- dren and Youth Project. A motion was made, seconded and carried to pur- chase new flags to be placed on the veterans' graves in observance of Me- morial Day. Meeting closed with JoAnne Edwards, chaplain, leading in the Prayer for Peace. Joan Edwards was in charge of the program. Her presenta- tion was on our story of the red poppy and to promote Poppy Day. Bonnie Pedersen served as hostess. The next meeting will be on May 12, when members will be decorating crosses with red poppies The April meeting of Rural Fire District No. 9 (Republic) was led by Mark Brown, president. There were 11 members present. A thank-you letter was received from Owen, Brady and Brian Stindt for the department' s help at the Dietz fire, that was on their ground and encroach- ing on Brian's house. Betty Bouray gave an update on the forestry grant. She said everything has been ordered, paper work done and check should be arriving soon. The only things left to be delivered are five hand helds and three sets of bunker gear. She also reported the Republic United Methodist Church has donated $300 to the defibulator fund. The red Dodge truck was discussed, specifically the tank in the back and how to stabilize the water. It was de- cided to look into the price of air bags and baffles to install in the tank. A new truck is not an option at this time. The Duclous grant is open for new requests and it was decided to ask for assistance in purchasing six sets of wildfire gear because most of the calls they respond to are brush fires and it would be more comfortable not to have to wear full bunker gear. The grant application has been submitted. It was asked if the new hand held radios could have other surrounding units' frequencies in them to make communication go more smoothly. Klay Bouray, fire chief, said he would see about getting these frequencies. The members were reminded that during tornado warnings, the trucks need to be taken out and can be used for storm spotters. Trucks leaving the lure hall must have two firemen and they need to be on the insurance. The next meeting will be at 8 p.m. on May 11.
