News from the Auxiliary

News From 8870 AuxiliaryWe’re happy to report that another of our annual members has chosen to become a lifetime member.

Our District 1 President, Mary Davenport, is bringing back news for us from Winter Conference this month. We also gave Mary 10 completed bags/”kits” for her “homeless Veterans Project”.

We have contributed items to the District 1 Basket to be auctioned off at Mid-Winter Convention in January 2019. We have also contributed items for the grab bags that are sold at convention to benefit the Hospital Program.

On December 1 of this year we will we will be Decorating the display case at the Edmonds Senior Center. We plan to show some of us working on various projects that we do to raise money for or to do things to say “Thank You” to our veterans including things for holidays like “Valentine’s Day’ and “Christmas”.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we’ll see you in December. Our next meeting is Thursday, December 13 at the Edmonds Senior Center. Several of us show up to have lunch there, and our meeting starts at 12:00 noon in the “View Room”. I’m planning a bit of a Christmas theme. I hope you can be there!
