Hello Members,

We finally had our inspection by District 6 President Heather Shepherd.  We had a
very good turnout for the meeting in spite of the bad weather. She gave us a very
favorable report.  Heather also gave a presentation on recruitment!
   
Dawn Shock will be going to the Midwinter Conference with Grace Connolly on
Friday Morning January 22nd and returning on the 23rd.  Please let her know if you
want to attend.

Grace Connolly reported on the Children’s Christmas party.  We fed 179 people with
112 being children.  She is already working on the plans for next year and has
contacted Mason High School about having the band march in the parade.  She has
also met with the township Fire Departments.
  
April Killian is working on the trip to the Veterans Hospital and preparing the items
that we are giving away to the patients.

We now have new scarfs for $3.00 each, contact LuAnne DuVall if you want to
purchase one.

Elections will be coming up and I hope that everyone is thinking of what they can to
do keep our Auxiliary in good working order.  Please volunteer to help out one of
the committee Chairpersons.

Membership Chairperson Sharon Grodi reported that we are over 100%.  We are
now 2nd place in the District.   A few more people paid at the meeting and we are
now at 108%!

Sheila Santure has been revising the calling list and there are a lot more names on
the lists.  She is in need of callers to make the lists a little shorter.  If you are
interested in helping out by calling members please let her know.

Community Days with Carson Stores will be February 26th and 27th.    I will need
people to work and sell the coupon booklets.  We do make quite a bit of money at
this fundraiser and I will be out of town so really need volunteers.

The Men’s Auxiliary has started the Lucky 100 again on Friday nights, please come
and support them!
