During the holiday season, the Daniel M. O’Connell American Legion Auxiliary Unit 272 of Rockaway Beach hosted a tree trimming party at the St. Albans State Veterans Nursing Home. The unit helped the wheelchair bound patients decorate the tree. The patients enjoyed bingo games, prizes and holiday music. Unit members served refreshments and distributed gifts to the veterans. Members of O’Connell Post 272 also participated in this annual event.
