From The Auxiliary

Not sure how we reached JUNE so quickly but here we are!  We have been busy with our annual scholarship fund drive and you may still continue to donate to this fund!  We had 13 applicants and these seniors are absolutely amazing.  We personally interview each applicant and continue to be surprised with their determination to further their education.  Send your donations to the attention of Eloise Monson/Judi Resch, 793 Crescent Beach Dr, Eastsound, WA 98245.

Auxiliary Member Barbara Saul is our Veteran Services Coordinator and has a project under way that is very special to us.  There is a great need for items for our Veterans at the American Lake Veterans Facility.  We have already delivered several boxes of clothing and other items.  A big THANK YOU to Mary Jackson for making the first big delivery.  Needs are new socks, underwear and t-shirts.  Also, very gently used jeans, shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, etc.  You may drop off at the Post any day after 4:00pm.  We would greatly appreciate anyone headed south on I-5 delivering some of our collected items.

Fircrest is another of our Auxiliary projects.  Located in Shoreline WA, Fircrest is a facility that provides housing and structure for those who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.  We are providing them with arts and crafts items.  Paper, colored pens/pencils, coloring books, etc. are most welcome.  Again, your contributions can be brought to the Post any day after 4:00pm.

Mark your calendars!  Pig Roast will be on Sunday, July 2nd.  $20.00 will cover dinner, dessert, water and assorted soda.  $10.00 children 10 yrs and under.  We are asking for donations for the dessert table.  The rest of the menu will be cole slaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, baked beans and French bread.

Any questions?  Call Patty (376-3618) or Judi (379-4069).

Happy Summer!
