The Exeter American Legion Auxiliary honored the families of fallen Exeter heroes on Monday evening. They held their annual Gold Star Tea with two Gold Star sisters present.

Auxiliary President Annette Gloystein shared several appropriate scriptures and thoughts with the group and Gold Star Tea Committee member Carol Bettger led the group in prayer. A beautiful tea was served and the sisters were presented with flowers and a gift certificate.

Jane Kaiser was a sister to Arthur Becker who was killed in World War II and Sharon Dyer was a sister to Kenneth McLeese who was killed during the Vietnam War. Each year the Auxiliary remembers those men who have lost their lives during conflicts and honors the family members who have sacrificed.
