The Mantua American Legion No. 193 and its Auxiliary recently gave all the profits from the February Soup Supper to the Nathan Gay Fund. A check in the amount of $522 was presented to his grandmother, Roberta Cooley.
Nathan is the son of Robin (Cooley) Gay of Shalersville and the late William Gay. Nathan remains in intensive care at Metro Hospital following an accident in December. He is a junior at Crestwood High School. Proceeds from the March 7 Soup Supper will be directed to Summer Nichole Hurd of Shalersville, who has cancer.
At the February meeting of the Legion Auxiliary Unit No. 193, a request for tote bags was issued. When veterans leave the hospital, sometimes they have only a paper bag for their clothes. The Auxiliary is making tote bags and will accept new or used tote bags, carry-ons or small suitcases, according to Dorothy Brady, unit president. They can be given to any Auxiliary member or brought to the Soup Suppers.
Virginia Gharky presented each of the 10 members in attendance a jar of strawberry jam as a Valentine treat.
Jim Frame was in California last month to work on the Rotary float that was in the Rose Bowl Parade. This is the 10th year Jim has done this.

The cost is $5 for adults, $3 for children 5 to 12 and free for children 4 and younger. The church is located at 9922 S.R. 44, south of Mantua Village.
There will also be an opportunity for further donations to help with the expense of Nathans care after the shooting accident at Christmas time.
Everyone is invited to attend.
