Sturdy Bank Gives SH Woman’s Auxiliary Funds to Help Troops

By Leslie Truluck

STONE HARBOR — Sturdy Savings Bank here has donated an undisclosed “significant amount” of funds to the Stone Harbor Stephen C. Ludlum American Legion Post 331 Women’s Auxiliary to assist in the club’s fundraising efforts to benefit military service members in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The auxiliary will host its fourth annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser, the club’s main and only fundraising event, at the Stone Harbor Yacht Club Sept. 20 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
For a $15 donation, attendees can enjoy a full spaghetti dinner at the yacht club and help supply troops with comfort items during their deployment.
“We choose this very worthwhile cause because we have all been affected by it, directly or indirectly. It’s a positive community event for a very valuable cause,” said Joan Kramar, event chairperson.
Last year, the club sent sunglasses and flea collars to troops through Lynn Pike, the club’s chaplain.
This year it will send hygiene kits and cooling scarves to service members.
Kramar said the club would also like to give a laptop computer to a homebound veteran wounded in the war.
Gina Frattaroli-Becker, assistant vice president and branch manager, presented a check to Kramar at the Stone Harbor branch Friday, Aug. 28.
Sturdy Savings Bank is the club’s sponsor at the golden level.
Cape Savings Bank is a silver level sponsor.
Kramar said about 400 people attended the event last year.
“We hope to see continued community support,” she said.
