December 2019


I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are all keeping your sanity as we dive head first into the Christmas Season!

In December, in lieu of a meeting we will be having our annual Christmas party. We will also be collecting monetary donations for the kiddos that we adopted. Tammy, Cary, and I went shopping today and had the best time! We were able to fulfill many items on the girls' lists. I can't wait for you all to see what we got at the Christmas party! Becca will be setting up a gift wrap station so that everyone will be able to contribute and see the items.

I will miss seeing everyone at the party but know you will be in great hands! Take lots of pictures so I can feel like I am there.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

RSVP For the Christmas Party

I will be purchasing $5.00 gift cards from McDonalds and Dairy Queen for the kids at One Hope United. They will be used as stocking stuffers for the 35 students.  Any extra I am able to get will be used as incentives when the students need encouragement or to reward them.  I will be taking donations at the December BPW meeting.  
Thank you for supporting this worthwhile project...
