Lewis County ABATE

Coordinator's Report



Hello Everyone,


There are a lot of changes that are coming up for the 2023 year and it's important that you as a voting member of the organization are a part of it. There was an email sent out earlier last week with the BOD and Chapter Minutes.  Check 'em out!


Additionally, I want to highlight a few events that we will be hosting or members will be attending over the next couple months.  Look forward to seeing some of you attend!


11/05/22 - A benefit dinner is being held for John and Katrina Elder to support them in their recovery from their motorcycle accident.  Dinner will be 12$.  There will also be an Auction after dinner.  If you have something you would like to donate to the auction please let me know and we'll make arrangements to get it to the Oakview Grange.  


11/19/22 - Food Drive event, come out and join us as we raise money and food for the Lewis County Food Bank coalition.  Event starts at 9am and continues until 5pm.  Look forward to seeing you there!


12/10/22 - Tractor Parade - Join us that day as we visit and show appreciation to the members and staff members of the assisted living facilities in Lewis County.  Following our tour we will stage up for an evening of fun at the Centralia Lighted Tractor parade!


While the cool weather is amongst us, our efforts to build funds for our scholarships and show appreciation for our community doesn't stop!  


Be safe out there and thank you all for your time.  I look forward to seeing you in the near future!!
