Wooster Emblem Club presents flag to Wayne Historical Society

Wooster Emblem Club

Wooster Emblem Club No. 374 met Feb. 22 when President Sharon Stevens initiated Arija Brewer and welcomed her into membership.

Correspondence read included a thank you from Wooster Hope Center for the $200 donation over the holidays and from the Elks for the flag for the outdoor pole.

The Americanism reading presented by Connie Kittle was a test of knowledge about the US presidents. Chairman Keri Merickel reported on activities since the last meeting, which included a coloring project at Wayne County Public Library for Presidents Day, awarding two Five Below gift cards and presidential rulers to the winners and coupon clipping at the Elks with 10,000 coupons sent to an overseas military base.

For Salute to National Veterans Patients week, 18 veterans at Danbury were presented with red, white and blue carnations tied with a small flag and a star packet with a thank you for their service card and to a member’s husband who was in the hospital. An Ohio flag was presented to the Wayne County Schools Career Center in observance of Ohio Statehood on March 1, 1803.
