This Month’s Featured Auction Item

A lovely new Lion Blanket


The tickets will be $2.00 each or 3 tickets for $5.00. The money raised from this item goes into our Administrative Fund. This fund is what we use for things we need but can’t use public funds for. This fund is what is used to pay for our hats, shirts, guest’s meals, waitress tip, and a lot more than you probably realize. That is why it is vital that we maintain our Administrative Fund as well as our Donated Fund.


Any member who would like to buy some tickets for this blanket but are not able to attend this month’s meeting please contact Donna Vasek nokotathunder@msn.comand we will arrange for you to get tickets.


Hope to see you at the meeting!
