Raises Money

On April 25th 2009 The Fraternal Order of Eagles Ladies Auxiliary hosted a benefit for one of the homes operated by Community Living Algoma, 1412 Queen Street. The Ladies Auxiliary first started this endeavor in January when a motion was made at a membership meeting to donate funds to this home for a new sound system for the people living in the home. As a thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary, the people who live there and their support staff invited them for a tea at their home. During this time it was noted that the interior of the house had not been painted in quite some time and the addition of new furniture would be a bonus..

During a subsequent meeting, the Ladies Auxiliary decided to pay for all the paint needed for the interior of the house. Painting and interior refreshing was not planned for the home with this year’s budget however, with this generous donation,, this was able to get done sooner. To date the kitchen, living room and the entrance to the home have been completely redone. Everyone living at the home has always been welcoming and now the interior matches the personalities of both the people who live and work at this house.

Each year the Madam President of the Auxiliary has a special project that she raises money for. In February, Linda Francisco the Madam President decided to host a benefit to raise money for 1412 Queen Street as her special project. This is both a place that is special to the Auxiliaries’ heart and a place in which she works.

After months of planning, endless hours of work and the generosity of the businesses of Sault Ste Marie, the benefit was extremely successful. The benefit raised $3000.00 after all the expenses were paid for!

Many thanks are extended to the following people and businesses:
