Auxiliary Officers 2017-2018
The Madam Prez sez…
Ho, ho, oh no the holidays have just slapped us in the face. I don’t know about all of you, but I find them to be sometimes very stressful. Especially when it comes to gift giving. I’m thinking money or gift cards will be the way to go this year.
Speaking of $money$. Did you know that the New Dawn Shelter of Gladwin is not Government funded? That means they really have to rely on the community to help with bills. I was hoping we could help with that during the month of December by making monetary donations. I will provide red and green envelopes where I keep my donation box. If you would like to donate just place your cash or check made payable to Secord Lake Eagles Auxiliary with The New Dawn Shelter in the memo and place it in the envelope and put it in the auxiliary mail box.
For the month of January, I have the perfect place for you to donate all the household goods you are replacing after getting new ones for Christmas. Things like dishes, pots and pans, bed sheets etc... Once a resident has found housing they have to start from the beginning as far as furnishings. Once again thank you all for your generous donations to my charity. We truly are people helping people.
Fundraisers are what keeps the auxiliary going. I have been so blessed by those who have stepped up to chair some of these recently. Mary Grayson and her son Rob Ohm did an awesome job on the October fest. Brenda Hillman and Mary Grayson had a great turn out for the craft/vendor sale. Kathy Halloran and Cathy Norton have worked hard to make sure our raffle tickets all sold for the drawing on the 16th. Congratulations to the winners. A very big thank you to Kathie Hart, Karen Gawron, Becky Sabourin, Peggy Sawka and so many others for a very successful Harvest Dinner and Bake Sale on the 15th. These events could not be done without the help of too many people to mention. From food donations to dishwashers thank you all so very much.
Happy Christmas and Merry Everything!
Madam President 19-20

Auxiliary Chaplain Report
The past several weeks have been very hectic so this article is going to be short but sweet. Valerie Young was in a serious 4 wheeler accident and broke several bones. She continues to recover at home. Kathie Hart had a procedure done on her back and is much better. A sympathy card was sent to Carol Nowak on the kids of NutC. If I missed anyone, my apologies. I can always be reached at email@example.com. Have a great holiday!
Editor Note: A thinking of you card was sent to Mary Petersen. Her husband has been very ill.
