The Auburn Area Democratic Club collected donations from its members of food, toiletries and other items to give to the Blue Star Moms of Sacramento to send to our troops overseas. The club members agreed to donate an additional $50 in cash to the Blue Star Moms to use for mailing expenses or other items as needed. For more information about the Blue Star Moms, visit www.blue starmoms.org. AADC also donated $200 to the 49 Fire victims, with a check going to the Auburn Disaster Relief Fund at the Community 1st Bank on Kemper Road in Auburn. In addition AADC will be offering a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from one of the six high schools in the Placer Unified High School District in the spring of 2010. The Auburn Area Democratic Club scholarship application will be available after the first of the year at the counseling offices at the schools. The funds being used for these donations were raised by AADC at their annual Wine Tasting and Art Gala at Latitudes Restaurant in September of this year.
