Letter from the Editor


The last few months have been very busy for our Auxiliary. We had our 59th Birthday Banquet on October 21st. The meal was fabulous, the entertainment was a lot of fun and overall the night was extremely successful. Our annual bazaar was held on November 23rd and it was very successful as well. We had more outside vendors than we have ever had before and our Straw Draw table was a must see for all visitors as per usual. The kitchen had some wonderful hot lunch items to offer to keep people full and happy. Thanks to all that joined in to make the day a definite hit.
