      Holiday Party is Next Thursday!

      The Holiday Party is next Thursday, December 7 at 7:30 at the UA Hall. It will include:

      Festive Attire is encouraged.

      Please note that cover is $10 for guests, and $5 for members.

      We need your help! Please sign up here to volunteer.

      Please Consider Giving a Gift to People in Need at
      our Holiday Party

      It's the Holiday Season – a Month of Celebration and Giving. We ask that you consider giving to the Washtenaw Salvation Army or the Washtenaw Food Gathers at the Holiday Party – or directly if you cannot attend the meeting.

      We will have a table at the Holiday Party where we will accept cash or checks, clothes in good condition, and healthy nonperishable food. Clothes for the winter are always a good gift to people in need. Make any checks payable to either the Salvation Army or Food Gatherers. We will get any donations to the group the donor selects & give a receipt. Below are links to the two charitable organizations.

      Salvation Army for Washtenaw County provides multiple services to those in need.

      Food Gatherers is the food bank and food rescue program serving Washtenaw County. They exist to alleviate hunger and eliminate its causes in our community.

      AASC Donation Committee: Lane & Jan Hotchkiss, Susan Brown, and Joe Knopp
