What a delight to see so many things happening with the Auxiliary! Thanks to Patty Gill’s printing and Mary Hibdon’s mailing, you should all have your 2017 rosters by now. Coming up is Nancy Collinge’s three days of bridge this month and her cleverly- worded flyer on a garage sale in June. (both flyers attached). We’re also working on a date for a “humorous crime safety talk” by Bryon Walls and a Thursday afternoon “coffee and tour” of the Toberman campus for an update on their current community strengthening programs. Plan to come learn and enjoy!

- June 3rd and 4th – Garage Sale – See enclosed flyer for more info
Thrift Shop Report
If you’ve not visited the Thrift Shop recently, please take the time to drop by and meet the warm and welcoming young manager, Marlene Hernandez. Check out the new “Boutique Corner” and the more orderly Sorting Room. Sales for the month of March were $3295 and will continue to grow. Volunteers are always welcomed. Do just walk in the door and say I’m here to help. Thank you.
“Tea and Tour”
Not only was the Tea and Tour event a financial success ($2450) but it was a joyous and informative experience viewing both the unique architecture of the Zettler home and George and Rosemary’s international and historic treasures but feasting on a beautiful array of tea sandwiches. Abundant desserts followed at the Jim and Julia Heard home surrounded by their unbelievable around-the-world display of collectables and antiques.
