Lake of the Woods Auxiliary
The Lake of the Woods Auxiliary was formed in 1996, by a small group of volunteers at Lake of the Woods. It is not necessary to live at the lake community to join the auxiliary. Because of our close proximity to Alice C. Tyler Village, our group supports the ongoing efforts at, the Village. Located just a few miles from the Village, our volunteer efforts are unique in that we provide direct, personal support for the children residing at the Village. Besides our cooperation with other volunteer groups to help make the Village’s holiday parties a success, we participate in special enrichment programs for individual children on a one-to-one basis, which are outlined below:
Birthday Baskets - We create a birthday basket for every child who celebrates his/her birthday at the Village, children who may never have celebrated a birthday before.
Library Program - Another initiative is the Library program whereby a member may read to one or more children as well as help to improve children’s reading skills.
Special Friends - Special Friend initiative is another individual program where a member may have a one-on-one relationship with a child and are willing to spend a few extra hours each month to provide support, love and attention to a child on a consistent basis.
