The next meeting is July 16th with the doors open at 8:30. Carol Neth will teach the Red Nosed Reindeer class for our Christmas in July event. If you have not signed up for the class and want to or cannot remember if you did, let Laura know you want to the July project.
Susan's hospitality plan is for our annual picnic time. She will have hot dogs, buns, and condiments. She asks members to bring an entree, a dessert and/or snacks that fits the picnic theme.
More bags for the backpack Service project will be available at the meeting there with paint. The plan is to have a painted backpack with goodies (crayons, coloring books, colored pencils, etc.) for children in the hospital long turn such as for cancer. The painted bags would be donated to hospitals with children with long term illness like cancer. Anybody having any idea where we can donate to, please let Bill Habers or any board member know. If you took home any Service project items home from a prior meeting, don't forget to bring it back painted. Filling the bag is optional.
July is usually out "trunk" sale where you can try to sell or give away "stuff" to your fellow members from your trunks if the weather is good or inside table space will be available if it rains. This can be done year around, but "trunk" sale sound fancier. This includes any old Make-It/Take-Its teachers may have. Also, Ways 'n Means will always accept any donations you do not want to take home. Jeanne will help the stuff find a nice home.
Rosemary is still asking everyone to save glass jars. Rosemary would appreciate that all labels and glue be removed, but it's okay if the label is still on. If you give us jars, we cannot use, still bring it. We will recycle it for you. In addition, Rosemary and Animal Friends will accept any monetary donations, small blankets, and food. A big thank you to all who have and will support the dogs, cats, rabbits, etc.
The Chapter Banner with that scene of Pittsburgh on it is still hiding somewhere. If you have it, please bring it to the meeting. If you know where it might be, let any Board member know. Hopefully, doesn't have it for some reason considering.
