Guild gathered for annual spring luncheon

The next Guild event, its annual Christmas Luncheon and Auction, is scheduled for Dec. 4.

Members of the Children’s Hospital-Enumclaw Guild gathered May 17 for their annual spring luncheon, benefiting Seattle Children’s.

More than 80 attended, enjoying a lunch catered by Jude Irish. A variety of raffle items were won by Meghan Iunker, Sally Hamilton, Kerry Anderson, Darlene DeGroot, Laura Murphy, Linda Sherlock, Ali Darr and Charlotte Coco.

Mutual of Enumclaw was thanked by outgoing President Sandy Stergion for its contribution made to Children’s through the Enumclaw Guild. Stergion also paid tribute to 40- and 50-year members who died toward the end of 2018 and in early 2019: Lois Olson, Dolly Fugate and Betty Puttman.

Incoming President Judi Puttman thanked Stergion for her selfless ness and spending 20-plus years at the helm. She also introduced new Guild officers: Vice President Lori McDonald, Secretary Ann Campbell and Treasurer Diane Abramson.

The luncheon ended with an announcement that the Guild’s annual Christmas Luncheon and Auction is scheduled for Dec. 4 at The Claw.

Going into January, the snow events are expected to move to Saturdays at the same time.
