Margaret Christensen was recognized for her service to American Legion Post 94 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5537 during Memorial Day services held May 29 in Minden. She was presented a plaque in gratitude of providing coffee, cookies, and conversation to veterans on Memorial Day for 51 years.
“I thought it was very nice. They wanted me to say something up there, but all I could say is thank you. If I had tried to say anything, the tears would have come,” Christensen confessed.
In 1966, Christensen and her husband purchased their home on W. 1st Street. The previous owners had been inviting veterans to their home for coffee and cookies on their way to the cemetery service for a few years and Christensen decided to maintain the tradition.
