Aspen Lakes homeowners contributed to spirit of giving

The Aspen Lakes Estates Owners’ Association contributed in the spirit of giving to the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District’s annual gift drive.

The association the held its Annual Holiday Quarterly Connection at the Brand 33 Club House on the evening of Thursday, December 5.

In addition to bringing appetizers to share that celebratory evening, homeowners wished to contribute to the Sisters Community in a meaningful and charitable manner. In conjunction with Sisters-Camp Sherman Rural Fire Protection District’s annual sponsorship of the “Spirit of Christmas Giving 2019,” providing Christmas gifts and assistance to families in need in Sisters Country this holiday season, the ALEOA members gifted over $1,000 in monetary donations, as well as purchasing many specific gifts requested by the receiving families for their children.

This local opportunity, developed and coordinated with the Fire District’s personnel, added a new and refreshing meaning to the annual Aspen Lakes’ holiday evening, the association reported.

More than 50 residents gathered at Brand 33, sharing a little holiday cheer; each guest drew a tag from the freshly decorated ponderosa pine tree and proudly deposited their donation into the fireman’s boot. Donning a fireman’s helmet, Social Committee Co-Chairperson Laurel Olson and her Committee members gathered to showcase the “Spirit of Christmas Giving” opportunity.

The ALEOA will now make this a tradition at their Annual Holiday Quarterly Connection.
