After cancelling our March meeting, Spring is here- really! Come on Down!
Thank you Jan-Marie Weiler of the past two years as president of the Auxiliary. Jan led us with great enthusiasm and a true love of the club. She continues to be an inspiration to us all.
Join us at our next general meeting on Tuesday April 2nd at 7PM. Did you know that honeybees must visit 2 million flowers to produce just one pound of honey. Learn more interesting facts about honey bees from our special guest speaker - Charlie Koenen, Head Buzzmaker at Beepods.com,LLC. He will give a beesentation to us.
Coming on May 7th is our annual Past Presidents and Life Members dinner. We will be honoring the past leaders of our Auxiliary. We have a wonderful program in store for all. Carolyn Wehner, a professional pianist/vocalist who performs throughout Wisconsin and Illinois will entertain us. She has a bachelor's degree in voice, and the focus of Carolyn's repertoire is music of the Great American Songbook. Join your friends, old and new in a delightful evening of camaraderie, food and entertainment. Our historian Christine Martin has been putting together scrapbooks to document our history. She will have these scrapbooks available for you to enjoy a peek into our past. The festivities start at 6 PM, reservations are required so please call the club. Kay Putney is the Mistress of Ceremonies (she is our Life Membership Chairperson and she will be back from Florida by then).
We continue to collect toiletries for Daystar and Joy House. They are always in need of shampoo, soap, toothpaste and they can also use kitchen products – dish soap, paper towels and other cleaning products. Marilyn Bruesewitz continues to drop these items off for us – let's fill her car at our May meeting. We all have household items around the house that we could donate. Give generously. Day Star is Safe Transitional Housing and Care for Women Fleeing Domestic Violence. Joys House too offers a safe haven for women and children. Little things make big things happen.
If you are a member of SSYC, the spouse of a member or a Life Member, consider joining us. Let's see us grow. Little things make big things happen. You can make a difference.
