I want to thank you for the money you gave to support Anew Day’s important work in the month of February. People in our community continue to reach out and ask for help navigating difficult circumstances in life. As I’m sure you can imagine, people are struggling with depression, anxiety, fear, bitterness, broken relationships and much more. These are difficult times and I am so grateful our community has a counseling center like Anew Day where people can call and get help navigating and processing hard realities and heavy emotions.
Additionally, I’d like to express a special thank you to Networked Insurance for responding to our Newsletter request for office chairs. They donated a number of high-quality chairs for our meeting room and rolling desk chairs for our office. They also donated some nice furniture for our lobby and group meeting room. We are very grateful for their generosity.
Lastly, I want to share with you a quick update on our annual Crab Feed fundraiser:
In January the hard decision was made to postpone our large dinner and auction fundraiser till this summer. We needed to make this decision at a time when COVID cases were spiking in our area. It has been 2 years since we’ve been able to hold this event in person and we cannot go another year without it. Though our drive through Crab Feed was successful last year for what it was, it did not give us the opportunity to personally share about the important work Anew Day is doing in our community. We were not able to ask for support face to face and we couldn’t hold our auctions, which contribute greatly to our financial needs. To be sure we could have these things in 2022 we decided to push the event off till summer and hold it outdoors. This of course means that we cannot serve crab. Therefore, the Anew Day Board is happy to announce that we will be hosting a BBQ ribs dinner catered by Bill’s Chuck Wagon on the evening of July 8th, 2022, so mark your calendars. More details will follow.
