The 2017 Annual Meeting was held on Thursday, May 11th. There were 88 Auxiliary Members in attendance from all regions. The conference opened with a welcome from the Auxiliary President, Ms. Julie Wernz followed by the “Hymn of Promise”.
The Keynote Speaker was Ms. Laurie Anne Spagnola, President and CEO of Board of Child Care.
The Children’s Choir of South Korea is an organization of children grades 3rd – 8th travels giving hope and joy to many people throughout their mission tours. The Board of Child Care had the privilege to host these young and talented students at our 2017 Annual Spring Auxiliary Meeting.
There was not a dry eye in the audience after the children sang “Jesus Loves Me” and then proceeded to hug each person in the meeting. Please enjoy photos from the event on our Facebook Page. Click here to see a video.
Give a Tic Program was a success!
The program was designed to help raise money for batteries for donated watches so that they could be used in the Christmas Store.
Our Auxiliary did a wonderful job as always with the 2016 Easter Baskets! Residents received them on Easter Day (and those who went home for the weekend had the basket waiting for them on their bed when they returned).
Special thanks to the following volunteer groups who helped the Spiritual Life team expand their Easter impact this year: Howard University students, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Glen Marr UMC youth group, and Asburry UMC (Jessup, MD) youth group!
