HOOT Activities

Our 2019 November meeting was an enjoyable event.  We held the election of our officers for 2020, had a delicious luncheon, and best of all, had Cheri Rol, MDA as our afternoon teacher!

Our members also brought in donations for the WARM Food Bank, and blankets, gloves, socks, and toiletries for the Faith Mission.

Here are some photos of our November meeting:

HOOT is participating in Parkside Village’s “Trees for a Cause Auction” on December 5, 2019. The proceeds from our auction items will go to Wounded Warriors.  We are donating a wreath with ornaments painted by our members, a wooden bowl painted by Nancy Bateman including hand painted ornaments (also by our members), two baskets with ornaments, and a porcelain bowl with roses on the lid painted by Thelma Hulet.

The flyer showing the location and time of the auction is pictured below as well as the items we are donating.
