VFW Ladies Present Book To Library

The Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars recently donated a children's book, "America's White Table," to the Queens Library Far Rockaway branch. The book explains the ceremony of setting a small white-draped table honoring military personnel who are Prisoners of War or Missing in Action. The Ladies Auxiliary will donate one copy of the book to a library in every county in New York State. Gloria Myers, Queens County Council President, presented the gift to Far Rockaway's Community Library Manager, Ken Schubert. Pictured, (left to right): Ann Keller, Treasurer of Post #2781; Gloria E.
