Thanks for help with Assistance League home tour

We would like to thank all who enjoyed Assistance League of Everett’s Holiday Home Tour on Dec. 5. For the 900-plus people who attended, know that your support will clothe over 400 students with complete school wardrobes this year.

It takes the supporting care of community members to make this happen. By opening their homes and businesses, the following made a big difference in the lives of children in the community. Thank you to: Linda and Larry Jubie; Kippy and Scott Murphy; Kathy and Jamie Hunter; Jan and Harvey Jubie; Walter Gillette and Saundra Cope and Dr. Sanford Wright. Chefs providing food from the following establishments: Buck’s American Café; Bleacher’s Grill at Cedar Crest; Cama Beach Café and Catering; The Restaurant at Rhodes River; LJ’s Bistro and Bar and Kama’aina Grindz did a great job. We also thank all the sponsors and patrons for their support.

A special thank you to all our volunteer members who worked countless hours putting the tour together and hosting the event.

We hope that all who attended enjoyed the tour and hopefully some of you will open your homes next year so we can continue clothing students.

Joanne Gunderson, president
