Newsletters have been sent via email or USPS, depending on your preference. I hope you enjoy reading about our active and busy association.
There was a small mistake in the newsletter regarding the Father Lane Circle event this weekend and their Bunco Party date. Please note:
Father Lane Oktoberfest is this Saturday, October 3rd, from 10am-5pm, at St. Anthony in Renton. Their Bunco party is Sunday October 11th from 2-4pm. They’re hoping you can join in the fun.
Also, we are hoping that all members will consider supporting ACC with an order of Paperwhites or Tulip Bulbs. Both are great for yourself or as a hostess gift. It is important to consider the importance of these fundraisers, as each little bit helps. Both fundraisers have low costs which equates to greater circle project fundraising, which in turn helps our grant funding. both in the fall and spring.

Marjorie Ryan Circle will also be selling wreaths soon. We are hoping to coordinate a west side delivery point (Magnolia) for you members that can’t make it to St. Catherine’s in Maple Leaf for pickup. Same consideration on the cost vs donation to ACC for wreath sales.
The Mary Ann Sauvage Circle is now inactive, (although great contributors to our Celebrate the Children event), and we will lose the proceeds from their poinsettia sale this year, so please take a look at the Paperwhite Basket and Bulb order forms and consider mailing in an order ASAP. Orders due with payment by October 14, 2015.
And last, you should have received your “save the date” card via email or USPS for our November 14th Celebrate the Children event.
Here is a little history on why we” Celebrate the Children…”
In 2002 the seed was planted to establish an endowment fund for the Association for Catholic Childhood. After several years of planning and initial funding, the Celebrate the Children (CTC), event was created. Every other year since 2009, we have encouraged members to invite their friends and associates to participate in this fun-filled evening which has added over $120,000 to the endowment fund. Great food, a wonderful presentation, raffle, bingo, and of course raising the paddle.
Please join us for the 4th Celebrate the Children event and help us in our efforts to fulfill our mission in support of Western Washington children and families in need, regardless of race or creed. Invitations will be mailing soon.
