November 11, Veterans day in Auburn, some attended the Pancake breakfast, Remembrance Ceremony and the 160 unit in the parade. It was enjoyable to honor the veterans.
November 12 District 11 meeting was held at Unit 19.
Handouts on Poppy activities and restrictions, Veteran Affairs Rehabilation from Seattle VA, and Seattle VA’s Sewing Request. Judy Gage a member of Unit 134 volunteered to help anyone that needed help to do a sewing project. We donated $200.00 from our 50/50 Pot Fund to Post 78’s Sweats for Vets project. The next District 11 meeting is planned for February 11 at Renton.

December 18 our unit wrapped gifts for Fircrest Home in Shoreline. We provide gifts to
10 resident in two cabins. They really appreciate our thoughtfulness. Elva delivered them that week. The Holiday Potluck and party was held on December 29. There was a white elephant gift exchange. Diana and Evelyn are still serving snacks to the Post for their meeting and Cafe Vets.
Look on the Post calendar for upcoming events in January and February.
