Last night’s event was an evening full of giving. We are so appreciative of United Way of Lewis County’s continuous efforts to help families out of poverty in Lewis County. It was a blast seeing all the thought and work that went into everyone’s “ugly” sweaters…(even though we secretly loved a few of them)! Holiday Inn Express & Suites provided the most delicious food and drinks and the smiles were contagious. The suspense was inevitable as the time came for raffle winner for “Dinner Anywhere in the World” to be drawn and we couldn’t be happier for the winners! Another generous organization that stood out last night was The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound. Norma Schuiteman did a wonderful job presenting donations to 5 local non-profit organizations in our community. 2018 is right around the corner and we urge our local community members to consider a couple different organizations to give back to and remember our time is just as valuable as money and there are more than a few organizations who would gratefully accept it! I think many will agree that we find value in helping provide these necessary and crucial services for the betterment and growth of our community and it’s members. Cheers!
