Holiday Gift Giving

Holiday gift-giving is a long-standing tradition
for many of us. The Spokane Audubon shopping opportunity is of recent origin, but fun and re- warding. At the up-coming DECEMBER meeting we’ll gather a bit early to participate in an activity that has had many satisfied customers and bene- fited our group’s bottom line the past three years. Here’s how you can be part of the process:

1) Bring and donate something bird or nature- related to be sold, thus making more space in your closets: Examples: T-shirts, hats, books, prints, puzzles, vases, etc. (It needs to be in new or near- new condition for this event)

2) Make a mental list of people you need to shop for, bring some cash or your checkbook, and get some shopping done without braving the Mall!

3) Watch the process while munching cookies and encourage others to buy out the place.

If you want to bring any items for the auction, give them to Joyce Alonso or another board member to place on the appropriate table.

Also, please bring holiday treats to share.
