Year End Banquet

The end of the year is fast approaching. If you have not returned your RSVP for the year end banquet celebration yet, there is still time. If you have filed it in a super safe place, but can’t quite remember where that place is, (happens to me all the time) see me at the General Meeting or shoot me an e-mail and I will get you signed up. The banquet will be on Sunday, May 3rd. It will begin with a social hour at 5 o’clock.

The cost is $18-21 depending on your dinner choice. Come help us celebrate our accomplishments and President Anna’s year. Coming Together to Change Our World!

Thanks, Tawn

April Ways and Means Updates.

April General Meeting: Chance to win a great basket. A $35.00 +++ value. It is a FUN basket with lots of goodies. Compliments of Teri B. & Delores H.

WAYS AND MEANS? This will be for the entire year! We hope many of you will participate. If you have any questions when you are signing up, there is "live chat" to assist. Renee W. is familiar with the survey procedure and has offered to be available for questions and there is lots of info on their website. You may ask friends and relatives to participate. The website is: https://www.foodperspectives.com and they are located in Plymouth.
Within a few months we will have a Ways and Means Project that will be similar to the re-gifting project we did last year. Be looking around your "re-gifting closet" OR for something you already have and watch for more details at a later date.
Thank you to everyone! We are all in this together!

Annual State Convention Service Project

Magazines with a Purpose!

You read your magazine and then what? For most of us they pile up until we decide it’s time to send them to the recycling can. At Annual Convention, we will be repurposing all of our 2015 magazines. Save them, bring them with, and join in the fun as we re-label and distribute. Each district will be taking home some of the “New” magazines to share with their chapters. Then we all will distribute them to local hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other organizations that could use a little extra help in their waiting rooms.
