We had our annual Junior Auxiliary Provisional Social tonight! It was beautiful. The new girls, "Provisional" are a wonderful and talented group. They are so excited to be a part of our sisterhood. We are so blessed to have them as part of our family. Natalie M. is the provisional leader this year and she is going to do a fabulous job. I also want to comment on our President, Susan B., she is doing an amazing job. She has made our meetings informative, fun, and she is such a great leader. She is encouraging us to set our goals higher, while honoring ourselves and others we come in contact with. She truly wants our member to achieve their personal best, as we go into the community and make a difference. We love you Susan, and appreciate your hard work and leadership. Keep those great ideas coming!!!!
We have several things coming up. Only two more weeks until our annual "Coats for the Community" this is such a worthwhile event. We provide a coat for those who are in need of one. It truly touches your heart to see a child's eyes light up and know that their little bodies will be warmed by our efforts. I challenge you to search your closets and find those coats that need a home and find someone who can appreciate it. I promise it will make you feel as good as the recipient. We are also working on the Christmas in Park downtown. Something new this year will be the Lollipop Shop (more to come on this later). We are also working on a float for the Christmas Parade.
This is where I need your help and input. Susan, Natalie and I were talking about doing a blog. A "Junior Auxiliary of McMinnville" Blog. What do you think, I think our associate members and life members would love this. We could post upcoming events and let you know what is going on with JA. Please post and let us know what your thoughts are on this. Especially if you are reading and you are active, associate, life member. We are trying to find ways to keep you informed and get the message out about JA and what we are doing in the community.
I hope you enjoy the pictures of our night.
