Fred Hancock Auxiliary Unit No. 19
The Fred Hancock Auxiliary Unit #19 has been busy fundraising with its recent October Holiday Bazaar. Seven vendors from the surrounding community sold their
handicrafts while the Auxiliary had a Fall/Halloween and Christmas - themed garage sale. This community out reach activity gave us an opportunity to share information about our programs for veterans,
active military and their families and to meet new friends. Appreciation and thanks are given to Esther, Elva, Erika, Evelyn, Linda, Loma, Doris, Tess, and Rhonda for their dedicated work. Special
thanks to Fred DeBerry for his help setting up and taking down tables and chairs and for Rhonda’s idea to have this creative fundraiser! We thank the Legion too, for the use of the Post hall and
everyone who donated item s for our garage sale. Elva, Esther, Evelyn and I attended the Fall Conference at Bothell Post on Sunday, October 1. Along with the Units from District #11, we met with
Department President, Janet Sperry and other Department Officers to learn about how to use our Auxiliary Resources and the online ALA Academy 101 & 201. We were encouraged to take on one new
activity this year to expand our outreach and to increase memberships. The Post also had a Potluck Social on Thursday, October 26, which included some of the new friends that we met at the Holiday
Bazaar, Ching & Jeff and Chan. Membership renewals are due! Please be sure to send in your dues to Esther. We appreciate your membership and support. We look forward to seeing you at our Holiday
Party Potlu ck on Thursday, December 28 at 6:30 pm. Please bring your favorite dish and a “White Elephant” gift for the gift exchange!
“Service not self.”
Sincerely, Diana Hagen
