Chairlady's Note

大家好嗎! Hello Everyone!

A HUGE thank you to our Flea Market Volunteers! Especially Laura and John, who commanded the booth setup and organization. They must have been "Yard Sale" professionals in a previous life! Our Flea Market Mamas showed up to school us in street market sales as well. "Mai 1 Song 1!" (Buy one, Get one). We raised over NT$21000 from the event!

Be sure to have a look at our Spring Fling information page on our website http://www.iwat.org/2017-spring-fling. We will be having a silent auction at the event, and you may read in our Charity News below about our donation process. Please contact Morelia if you can help find donors for our Spring Fling Silent Auction!
