Our July 14th meeting was an abbreviated meeting held prior to the White Elephant Auction. There were 13 members in attendance who heard the minutes read by Sandy Jacobs. Discussion was held on the final details of the July Luau. Refreshments for the August meeting will be provided by Jinnae Wessling and Jan Newberry. The meeting adjourned and we continued the evening with the White Elephant Auction.
Success! Over a thousand dollars was raised at the 5th Annual White Elephant Auction. Everyone had a great time trying to outbid their friends and neighbors on a large array of donated items while enjoying the very scrumptious Brownie Bites provided by Nancy Drennon and Donna Wild. As in any charitable function, we could not have done it without our volunteers. A big thank you goes out to Mary Ann and Camacho Alvarez, Sandy and Jack Jacobs, Barbara and Pat Martino (who not only helped on Monday, but loaded up and delivered the remaining items to Goodwill on Tuesday), Donna Wild, Jinnae Wessling, Elizabeth Hazell, Irene Romero, Vicky Long, Brenda Rehnke, Barbara King, Cathy Poterack and Deanna Jones. A special thank you to Marge Shreck for being our auctioneer and making the evening a fun and lively event. Keeping 45 attendees bidding was no small feat, and also thanks goes to Stephanie Bongartz for printing our flyers.
Thank you to all who donated, without you we would not have had an auction and to anyone we may have missed mentioning, thank you to you too!
