The Lekson Chapter purchased five CD players / FM radios for the use of veterans living in the NM State Veterans Home in Truth or Consequences, New mexico. The players were to become the property of the facility library. Los Lunas Blue Star Mothers (BSM) Vice-President Betty Follett approched the Chapter at its July ExCmt meeting and brief us on its initiative. The Chapter approved the action and the five players were transferred to the BSM on August 15th.
