Our annual Christmas Party held on Saturday December 16 was a great success.
Thanks go out to Dan Mullene and American Legion Post 66 for co-hosting the event. Special thanks to my two decorating elves from our Auxiliary, Jo Boyett and Patsy Ethridge-Neal for all their hard work.
Great food and conversation were had plus we raised $500 from raffle items that was split with the American Legion.
We also raised $4,290 from our raffle of Michael Reagan’s Seahawks Legend poster. In addition, Michael did a special presentation to Michelle Clyborne of a portrait of her father, who served in the Special Forces in Vietnam.
We collected a lot of toys and food which I delivered to the Edmonds Food Bank by with the assistance of Quartermaster Joe Gray, to add to those already delivered from the collection at Teri’s Toybox, the downtown Edmonds toy store.
The Legion’s winter clothing Drive also received a lot of donations. The generosity of both the VFW and American Legion members is amazing!
If you weren’t able to make it to the party, we hope to see you there next year!
