Gift Shop Buyer Nettie Remmers reported many fall and Christmas items, such as decorations and gifts, have arrived and are being placed on the shelves. More items are on their way.
Of special note was the report of Ways and Means Chairman Patsy Marchant concerning the upcoming Fall Jewelry Sale. The semi-annual sale is one of our major fund-raisers for the year. Although we call it a Jewelry Sale, don’t let the name fool you! Jewelry, yes… and lots of it. But did you know there are also purses, tote bags, toys for children, glasses, sunglasses, cell phone holders, manicure sets, scarves, flashlights and on and on. There are always new items to surprise and delight us! And something for everyone. With the holidays coming up, it’s the perfect place to do some shopping. This two-day sale will be Monday, Oct. 15 from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 16 from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. Mark your calendars and pass the word. We hope to see you there.
Also there’s a new lap quilt to be raffled. The quilt is approximately 55”x 65” and features a variety of embroidered Jacobean Birds on floral branches on a pale sage green tone-on-tone background. It even has scalloped edges. Tickets are $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. The drawing will be held in November during the upcoming Tamale Sale. We invite you to come visit us at the Gift Shop to see the quilt on display and “take a chance” or you may ask an auxiliary member for tickets.
As always, all proceeds from these, or any of our fund-raising efforts, directly benefit the Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital. We thank you in advance for your continued support of Auxiliary efforts.
Our next business meeting will be Thursday, Oct. 11 at 9:30 a.m. in the Hospital Board Room.
