Diane Mahan, 2020 Ladies of the Lakes President

Ladies of the Lakes resumed their fall monthly meetings via Zoom with a discussion as to how we could show compassion to those impacted by the Creek Fire. 

First, we agreed to send $500 to an animal rescue group, knowing that there are charitable organizations housing and feeding displaced pets and livestock. 

Secondly, we turned our focus on how to help people.  We agreed that there are needy and deserving folks within Yosemite Lakes Park that are living with circumstances that force them to choose between medication, food, shelter and YLOA bills.  We decided that with the launch of YLP Cares, we would give a $500 donation to this charitable organization that helps our neighbors. 

Ladies of the Lakes will not be able to replenish the money this year through fundraising, as COVID-19 is preventing us from holding our Holiday Boutique.

Knowing that, we agreed that we would make the need of others a priority and hope that we would find new and creative ways to fund raise in the future.
