FROM THE PRESIDENT
August 2018

Hello all! Summer is coming to a close and we're gearing up for fall!

At our August meeting, we will be collecting food donations for the CCBA. As kids go back to school, they find this time of year to be short on donations. They are very appreciative to BPW for doing this food collection, so let's not disappoint!

Plans are well underway for BPW Week in October, and all of the exciting events that go with it.  Tina and Vickie are working on the Scholarship Salad Luncheon and sign-up sheets, tickets and flyers will be available at the August meeting. 

See you all soon!

Be sure to follow us on Facebook!

CCBA FOOD DONATION

Please bring all donations to our August meeting!
 

I talked to CCBA about their needs and they told me the following:

1. Jelly 

2. Canned Fruit 

3. Canned Vegetables

4. Anything considered a pantry staple and has a stable shelf life. (i.e. Pasta, Rice, Oatmeal, Beans, Canned Meat)

They also said that they are now accepting personal item donations like shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toliet paper and paper towels. They told me that they are now seeing people request personal items even though that's not something CCBA provided in the past.

Salad Luncheon Ticket Information

Salad Luncheon tickets and 50/50 tickets are done and in envelopes addressed to each of our members.

Members will be able to pick up their envelope on Wednesday night at the meeting.

There are 8 salad luncheon tickets to sell and 12 -50/50 tickets in each envelope.
