TONTOGANY - Rita Euler, 87, of rural Bowling Green, was recently honored with an unusual level of recognition by the Tontogany Lybarger-Grimm American Legion for her years of service to the organization and to the veterans at their annual Legion Birthday Party.  
"I've been a member of the auxiliary for about 66 years," said Euler, "and I'm still making salads for the lunches and I'm still the chaplain."
Along with her dedication to the legion itself, fellow members note she has spent her lifetime sending notes and cards to veterans and visiting people in various area nursing homes.  
The plaque in Euler's honor currently hangs on display in the Tontogany post home.
"She is truly an amazing woman and is loved by an incredible number of people," said Euler's daughter, Tina Thomas.
