At our Department Winter Conference in February:
We will have our first two drawings for Auxiliaries that reach their 100% by December 20, 2016 and February 1, 2017. Every Auxiliary that is 100% will go into this drawing and we will draw out one Auxiliary for December 20 and one Auxiliary for February 1. The winning Auxiliaries will receive $100. Remember: Dues must be in our Dept. Treasurer Jeri’s hands by the above dates. So, if you are mailing, you must mail early so they are not late.

If the winning Auxiliaries are 100% plus (at least one member over
100%) We will double the money! You will receive $200 instead of $100!
If you win the first drawing, your Auxiliary goes back in for the next drawing, so you could come home with $400. So, the sooner you get your 100% plus the better chance you have at getting big money.
