 The 2018/2019 Club Year

New emails have been created for the club. AHCLClub@gmail.com is for general club inquiries, AHCLEvents@gmail.com is for our events/fundraisers and AHCLDonations@gmail.com will be used for our Give Away of funds.

 

The AHCLDA put on a wonderfful and successfl dance recital. Twenty four members and nine non-members pitched in to help out. The profits from the recital will go to Matthew's Hope for Miracles which raises awareness of Pediatric Cancer, and another deserving young man in the community with heart problems who is currently going through therapy.

 

The third annual Cheers To Spring Winefest was, once again, a big hit despite the snowy, rainy start! The AHCL made over $13,000.00 which will go back into our community. The Ways and Means committee deserves many thanks for all their hard work. Also, kudos go out to all the members who helped.

 

Our Town notes are still being sold at The Gathering Place, the Abington Community Library, Sunrise Cafe, Everything Natural, Waverly Deli and Waverly general Store. The note cards have depictions of familiar places within the Abingtons. The cards were designed by Shirley W. Eagen, mother of AHCL member Gretchen Eagen Mackie. The amount raised so far is $2,272.36. $1,500.00 went to the scholarships and the remainder will go towards next year's recipients.

 

The Fishing Derby will be held on June 8th. Volunteers will be needed.

 

The Home Life committee is looking for material suitable for making bandanas. The dogs and cats at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter have their pictures taken wearing the bandanas on their way into the shelter and again when they are being adopted.

 

 

  UPCOMING DATES!

 

Book Clubs 1 and 2 continue to meet on a regular monthly basis. They always have interesting topics to read and discuss.

Tradition
Pictured is the signing of the tablecloth, which has been in the civic league for years.  It is a tradition that new members sign the cloth and their signature will remain as a remembrance that they have served their community by being an active part of the AHCL.
