NAMI FOND DU LAC OPPORTUNITIES
April 20, 2013
Message to our NAMI Fond du Lac membership and friends: We have four BIG activities planned that we want to let you know about, and we want to ask for your help in making them a success.
1) Next Thursday, April 25th, will be our 3rd Doughnut/Bill’s Brownies/ Raffle Ticket Sale at the Courthouse from 8:30 to approximately noon. It will be a great kick-off for our Raffle ticket sales, which will, as usual, cost $1 a piece and $5 for 6. We have close to $6,000 worth of great prizes. If you need a doughnut that day, stop in. There will also be coffee from the Blue Goose Coffee Shop.
2) The RAFFLE results will be chosen at the June 6th NAMI meeting.
We need EVERYONE’S help in selling ALL the tickets. Our NAMI Affiliate needs to raise money if we are to keep Friendship Corner open and continue our wonderful programs in our community. If you want to get tickets right away, see Diane at Adult Care Consultants (Bev’s work place) located at 21 East 2nd Street, Suite 102, 921-7723. Ticket will also be available at the May 2nd NAMI meeting.
3) The Annual Community Bazaar at Forest Mall will be held on May 4th and 5th (Saturday and Sunday) next month. NAMI/Friendship Corner will have a booth, providing information about us, selling our zipper pulls and buttons, and also selling baked goods, a great way to attract the curious. If possible, please help us out by bringing homemade bakery goods to Friendship Corner on Friday, May 3rd, by 1 PM.
4) SAVE THE DATE for the 2nd Annual Horicon Bank Run/Walk for Wellness, “Miles for the Mind,” will be held on September 14th, 2013 at the Mary Kelly Gymnasium at UW-Fond du Lac.
