May Program – The History of Mare Island

May 26, 2021, at 1:00 pm

Zoom Presentation

Laurie Smotherman, the immediate past Regent of the Auburn chapter of D.A.R. (Daughters of the American Revolution) will give a very fun and informative Zoom presentation discussing the history of Mare Island from Native American presence to the Navy base closure. The presentation will include sharing some very special photos. Be sure to invite your husband to enjoy this fascinating presentation with you, especially if he has served in the military.

October Program – Annual Auction

If you have been using your time in COVID-19 isolation to clean and organize your home, the Silent Auction committee would like to remind you that your gently used items or those things you may be tempted to use for regifting would be welcome additions to our annual silent auction, scheduled for our October luncheon. As a reminder, we cannot accept clothing, but home décor items, jewelry, and other miscellaneous treasures have always been popular at this event. Please consider setting aside your “good stuff” to be donated to Newcomers’ Christmas Families Project fundraiser in October. When the proposed change in our IRS recognition status is approved, your donations will be fully tax-deductible.
