GIRLS STATE We sent 3 girls to Girls State in Ellensberg in June.  We are looking forward to hearing about their great experiences at our potluck on September 9th.  Come, listen to their reports and meet them.  We want to thank those that made it possible the girls to attend. A Big Thank You to Debbie LeRoy, our chairman.

GARAGE SALE.  The Auxiliary will be having a Garage Sale at the Post Home on August 15 & 16.  We will accept donations of all good usable items   The proceeds will go to help keep our programs going.  Items may be brought the hall from now to the time of the sale by contacting Elva Schulz at 425-255-0440 or Loma Taylor at 425-228-3764.  We will need help the week starting Aug. 11 to the end of the sale.  It will be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance for the help.

POPPY DAYS.  We want to THANK all that helped to hand out Poppies during our Poppy Days.  Rod Haynes, Jim Rowe, Eunice Paulus, Milt Tiede and his group, Bruce Welder, Fritz Cerney, John Houser, Bruce Feltman James Wilhoit and any that I may have missed.  Also those that mailed in donations.  It is very much appreciated.  It will go directly to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans.

We are very saddened to report the death of Duane Schmidt, Esther Maas companion. He will be very much missed by the Auxiliary and the Post, because he was always there to help when needed. Our prayers go out to Esther and the family. 

Our prayer goes out to Loma Taylor, that her medical problems are resolved soon.  We need you back helping us. And any others that are having difficulties.

 

DEPARTMENT CONVENTION.  Linda Cook and Elva Schulz will be attending the Department convention in Vancouver, WA., July 16-19 as delegates.  Diana Hagen and Evelyn Lundstrom-Weiss are alternates.
