The SWWS Auxiliary was founded in 1977 for the express purpose of providing financial support, promotion and assistance to the symphony. The first meeting was held at the home of Lee Wollenberg with 14 founding charter members in attendance.
Over the years, the Auxiliary has provided financial support to the symphony for the conductor’s stipend, music, instruments, equipment and general financial support.
Each year at the April concert, the Auxiliary awards a Scholarship to help further the music education of the selected Young Artist. The Auxiliary has provided receptions for the Young Artist Auditions and Young Artist Concerts, bouquets for the guest artists and batons for the guest conductors.
See’s candy is available year round through the Auxiliary as their main fund raiser. For information and order forms, contact Sue Lane, 360-261-0658.
Auxiliary meetings are held at 10:00 am on the fourth Friday of each month, September through May, with the exception of November (third Friday) and December (no meeting). New members are always welcome. For information, contact Glenda Schuh, 360-423-2536.
