AUXILIARY ANGELS: Please play close attention: there will NOT be a garage sale fund raiser for Toberman Auxiliary this year! It took a while and the gathering of much “stuff” and the sorting and transporting of same before my old, feeble mind determined that for what we could make from the sale could NOT justify the hugs amount of labor that we “old chicks” would have to supply. Feel free to keep cleaning closets, etc. as our wonderful, well-run, well-organized Thrift Shop can always use your donations! Also, if you haven’t ever shopped in our Thrift Shop, you are missing out on some great deals.

August will be a “dark month” for the Auxiliary, no Board meeting or General meetings planned, but be prepared for major work prep for our November PARADE OF TREES that will start in September! The first Tuesday, September 7, there will be a TNCA Board meeting at my office at 796 w. 9th Street in San Pedro. We start at 9:30 with coffee and Danishes! All TNCA members are eligible to attend, so please join us and see how you can help!!

Speaking of help…watch and/or listen for my newest “brain storm” (maybe a light sprinkle) for raising funds: THE X FACTOR!!

Lastly, but certainly NOT least, is a sad happening: our most beloved Auxiliary Angel, Rosemary Zettler will be moving to Orange County soon, but she promises to keep in touch. I plan to have an Auxiliary Board pot luck luncheon for her on August 14th at my home. More on that later.

You know I love you…hugs, Nancy

The 2018 Auxiliary rosters are now available. We passed out as many as possible at our Board meeting, have left many in the Thrift Store Sorting Room asking volunteers to pick up their copy and hope to pass out many more so as to save the $1.60 the post office will charge to mail them. Our membership stands at 61. And do have a great year, everyone!
Rosemary Zettler, Roster Coordinator
(but the real credit goes to Patty Gill who printed the rosters, and, of course, Mary Hibdon, our Membership chairperson)

NANCY’S NOT NONSENSE (well not everything)

Dear fellow auxiliary members: hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day. Our last board meeting was very productive and we have a new plan for February 20. Rather than having a general meeting with a speaker which we have found in past attempts to be under attended, we have decided that re-organizing and cleaning the thrift shop would be a much more productive activity.
Gina McKenna and Rosemary Zettler are in charge of this and it will more than likely last for several days. If you are interested in helping out, please call either Gina or Rosemary and let them know what day would work for you. If we have too many at the shop at one time it will not function as well.
I hope that many of you are going to be able to attend TNC’s major GALA at the Long Beach Aquarium; it sounds like it’s going to be wonderful. If I could get there from China I would do it. Since I will be in China for almost the entire month of March, I won’t be bothering you with too many activities. April will bring us to our English tea and then we will begin preparing for Game week in May.
Stay well and know you are loved… Nancy Collinge, President TNCA

Membership
Both Mary Hibdon and I want to thank all you wonderful people who have now paid your annual dues and who’s names we are delighted to list in our brand new 2018 roster. A special thanks to you, Patricia Gill, for your no small amount of effort at your computer and the actual printing of the document.  We hope to have the rosters ready for distribution in late February or early March.
In much appreciation, Rosemary Zettler
