The sale of poppies under the auspices of the Hartley American Legion Auxiliary set a new high when a total of $255.25 was collected. The previous high was in 1946 when $250 was received.
Donations to the cancer drive in Hartley fell a little short of the $350 quota. The amount of donations from organizations and individuals totaled $300. Response was considered generally good.
