2023 Chapter President:
The next meeting is March 19th, which is also somebody's birthday. Laura Angelo gets to be the first teacher of 2023. She will be teaching Juanita Denton’s Butterfly Collage on a wooden heart. If you haven't yet signed up, let Laura know in plenty of time, so she can get ready for you. See the class page for the schedule of classes coming up. Susan's hospitality plan is for a belated Mardi Gras theme. She asks members to bring an entree (possibly something Cajun) or a dessert and/or snacks that fits the theme.
More bags for the backpack Service project will be available at the meeting. 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 the January meeting, don't forget to bring it back painted.
If do not have the Town and Country 2023 Retreat Book, click on Miscellaneous above and then click on Retreat Book. You can then look at the projects and if desired print off a copy of the book. You can also print off the 2023 Registration Form.
Ways 'n Means will always accept any donations at the next meeting. If you wish to sell or give away "stuff" to your fellow members, table space will be available. This includes any old Make-It/Take-Its teachers may have.
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.
