75th Anniversary: Mary Kate Myers gave a Power Point presentation telling the story of the Auxiliary in the 1930’s and 40’s. The Anniversary committee passed out a packet of ‘sticky notes’ with the 75th Anniversary logo and reported that a pad would also be included in the mailing to the sustainers. The schedule of events will be included in the Reflector mailing as well as on our web site.

Ann Frick is working on a booklet that will be passed out at the Sept. 7 celebration dinner.

Evans House: Several activities have been scheduled only to be cancelled at the last minute by the Program Director. The committee will follow up with Jon Bennett.

Garrard House: Carol Herman and her daughter went to Garrard on Super Bowl Sunday, to teach the girls how to do origami. They were met with considerable resistance and negative attitudes. After much prompting and ‘encouragement’ they decided to cooperate and enjoyed the activity once they became engaged.

Marie Miller took the girls to CC’s Pizza for Valentines Day and also gave the girls a stamped Valentine so they could send it to anyone they chose. In March, the girls are going to the Morris Butler House for High Tea.

Courage Center: Andra Sudler took Valentine Day treat bags to the children at Courage Center. She and Jane Quinn continue to do an activity with the children one Monday each month.

Reflector: Carol Herman has been working on the articles for the Reflector. Kathleen McGrath will mail it on Thursday, February 22.

75th Anniversary: The schedule of activities will be included with all communications.

For the April 17 CBA/Staff Luncheon all past presidents will be invited. We need all Committee Chairs to attend. Connie Odekirk is to get the date to Jon Bennett so he can have the Program Managers from the Group Homes to save the date.

The Invitation ‘stuffing’ will be March 12 at Kathleen McGrath’s from 10:00 – 2:00. All are welcome for as long as they can stay.

The provider of the fashions will be J. Shepard at Clay Terrace.

“Save the Date” postcards are being mailed today.
