Ladies’ auxiliary donation to support lodge upgrades

A generous $3,000 donation made by Sylvan Lake Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary will benefit current and future residents of Sylvan Lake Lodge.

A generous $3,000 donation made by Sylvan Lake Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary will benefit current and future residents of Sylvan Lake Lodge.

Lodge resident services coordinator Carol Baragar, who accepted the donation last Friday, said the money would likely be used for upgrades at the lodge.

A new sound system is on the list of items being considered.

The funds were raised through various auxiliary initiatives, including breakfasts, banquets and catering, and were presented by Katherine Duncan, Evelyn Crawford, Dot Boomer and Thelma Pauquette.

The presentation took place during the lodge’s Christmas tea and craft sale, during which residents were able to purchase tea and a tart for $2. Funds from that event go back to the lodge, and support entertainment and other in-house expenses.

Some of the unsold items from the craft sale will likely be shared with the community, said Baragar. She added that remaining toques and mitts have in the past been sent to Haiti.

The day is not about fundraising, but rather about ‘fun’ raising, she said.
