Brothers and Sisters,

I hope all of you are doing well. December is a very busy month for the Auxiliary.

The Christmas party for the Ladies Auxiliary is December 9th and will start at 6PM. Bring your favorite covered dish or dessert. If you plan to join the Chinese Auction, bring a $10 gift, and a $10 gift for the Auxiliary mother (she prefers money).

The annual Breakfast with Santa is December 12th at 9AM to 11 AM. Bring some goodies and fruits. Volunteers are needed.

Donna Lane is retiring from the Loving Care Basket charity. Thank you Donna for all you have done for the Ladies Auxiliary these many years. We salute you Donna.

Mary Pauley will take over the reins of the Food Basket Charity starting December 2015. We need cakes for her charity, the Loving Care Baskets on December 7th.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our home to yours.

Angelita Howe,
Auxiliary President

We had wonderful weather to get all this done in one day. Thanks to all the volunteers that gave of their time to help us. Thank you to Sharon Back for providing breakfast for us. Kitty Knisley for bringing in the boxes, Norma Grogg for donating canned goods. We would like to thank all volunteers, Madam Auxiliary President, Angelita Howe, Nikki Moneymaker, Sharon Back, Sandy Hale, Kitty Knisley, Betty Hoover, Angie Furr, Anita Moore, Debbie Eckard, Mary Pauley, Leslie Knight, Hope Fitzgerald, Carol Clatterbaugh, and Donna Lane. Worthy President, Ken Hale, Johnnie Moore. Tracy Moneymaker, Wayne Paxton, John Waugh, and Larry Puffenbarger. All baskets were delivered and everyone was very appreciative of what the Eagles were doing for the families.

This is the last year for the Loving Care Basket Committee we have enjoyed this with all our hearts but now we have a new person taking over next year. Mary Pauley has so graciously stepped up to chair this committee. Volunteers please give her all the support you have given us. May each and everyone of our Aerie and Auxiliary members have an awesome Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.
