Easter Gifts
Our Easter Gifts to Avondale, in Memory of and in Honor of our loved ones, are shared here in PDF and Video .
For the butterfly release, we will keep you posted when that will be held.
Thank you to all for your gifts.
Faithful Friends
Over 50 people, most born before 1940, are on our Faithful Friends list, made up of Avondale members. ASAP members recently made and mailed an Easter card to each Faithful Friend. They included a note and questions [LINK] to help keep people engaged. Also, the questions are good talking points when Avondalers call them. If you are interested to call a Faithful Friend regularly to chat, please contact Lyn Sweet or Brenda Coble.
