Thank You to Special Donors

The 2021 Festival of Trees was a great success!  While we certainly appreciate all donors who contributed, we wanted to recognize two special donors who went out of their way to make a donation, even though they weren’t in attendance at our event.

David Dean made a generous $500 donation in memory of our very special former life member, Mary Lou Dean.  If you see David around town, please be sure to thank him and let him know how much we miss Mary Lou’s presence and personal contributions to our club!

We also received a letter from Tom & Emily Insko, along with a $500 donation:

“Dear La Grande Soroptimists,                                                                                                                       Tom and I regret being unable to attend the Festival of Trees this year as family will be in town for his father’s memorial the following day.  We want to be sure to donate but, most especially, thank each of your members for your tremendous support of our community!  Your generosity of your time and talents is inspiring and I marvel to see your members doing other good work in addition to their role with Soroptimists.                                                                      Thank you,  Emily Insko”

Thank you to all members and donors who helped make this Festival successful!  Merry Christmas!
