Larry and Carla Sue will be our special guests for our December meeting. They are considered Michigan’s smallest bell choir. They have been playing since 1987 on different continents. They connected online and the rest is history! We are pleased to have them visit us.
Our social time will begin at 6:45 p.m. on that evening. At 7:00 we will have a short business meeting and our special program will perform a short time after the meeting.
We are still collecting for our Kentwood Family. This is the last chance to bring your gifts and donations before Christmas.
Also, we are having our Christmas Exchange. Please bring an ornament or other Christmas decoration around $10 in value. Just place your item in a gift bag with your name on the front. We are planning a fun activity to move the gifts around for the exchange.
We traditionally take a picture of the group at this meeting to put in the scrapbook. So, please wear a Christmas sweater or vest or something festive for the picture. We hope to see you there!

2018 Scholarship Auction
Our 2018 Charity Auction was a great success! Between the considerate monetary donations and the enthusiastic bidding, we made a grand total of $1700! This has given us a good start for this year’s scholarship recipient(s). A big thank you to our auctioneers Betty DeFouw and Susan Young. A thank you, too, to Lois Johnson and Mary Dulude who assisted our auctioneers. And, an additional thank you to Susan Smokoski, Mary Lee Anderson, and Sharon VanVells who diligently recorded all the biddings and gathered the money.
We could not have had a successful night if it weren’t for the considerable donations brought in by our members. We also had a number of noteworthy donations from area businesses and individuals. So, a BIG thanks to the following:
Judge Sara J. Smolenski
Marge’s Donut Den
Ferris Coffee and Nuts
Russo’s International Market
Classic Family Hair Studios
Starbucks at Woodland Mall
The Red Geranium
52nd Street Auto Wash
