Our Christmas Craft & Bake sale would not be such a fun and successful event without all the helping hands! Big thanks goes out to Mona Clayton, Luann Griffith, Donna Sjogren, Kathy Cobb, Carol Beager, Judy Nelson, Cindy Bell, and Susan Bower for decorating, setting up displays and sales. I always receive crafty help and ideas from Lisa Scoble, she put some of the baskets together, thanks Lisa. All these ladies not only donated items to sell but bought lots also! Donna Kealoha, although was out of town for the sale, she dropped off lots of items.  I hope I didn’t forget anyone to thank. Thank you all for your help. Thanks to all the folks donating items and cash.

                  And to those that purchased items. The sale was one of our best. We brought in $1802.00.                                 And the Center also received some fantastic cash donations not counted in the sale total.                       It is very heartwarming to know how many folks keep senior citizens close to their hearts.                  This continued support certainly helps with our budget. Thanks to all of you!

                And Lillie Montoya our See Candy sales rep. did an awesome job. That total was $905.00!                         Great work Lillie and thanks to all the folks that purchased candy. Enjoy.
