OGDENSBURG -- AmVets Post 19 Ladies Auxiliary will host a jamboree Feb. 17 at noon to benefit Claudia Perry, an active member of the auxiliary.

The jamboree will feature area bands and DJ's, as well as a Chinese auction, silent auction, live auction, raffles, 50/50's, and food. A raffle for a 32" flat screen TV will be held, with an Android tablet as second prize. Tickets can be purchased from any auxiliary member or during the jamboree.
Donations for the jamboree auctions are being accepted. Call Susan House 393-0849 to arrange to have an item picked up. Cash donations to Claudia can be made by check, payable to Claudia Perry, sent to Chairperson Susan House, Pray Road, Ogdensburg. House is also willing to pick up checks.
