The Mountain Mail, Nov. 12, 1969:

The American Legion Auxiliary will again have their annual project of collecting gifts to be sent to the gift shop at the veteran’s hospital in Fort Lyon, Colo. All items must be new.

These gifts are for the men in the hospital to select their gifts to be sent home to their family as Christmas gifts.

Suggested items are gloves, tie clasps, pen and pencil sets, flashlights, toilet articles in plastic bottles for men, jewelry, gloves, purses, stationery, tea and kitchen towels, hose, aprons and articles for the home for women.
