September 2020


Welcome to BPW 2020-2021

 "Growing Together"

 Hello BPW Sisters and welcome to September.  I don't know about you but I'm already looking forward to cooler weather and changing leaves.

This month, like the entire year so far brings some changes to our gatherings.  The Elks can not accommodate our group at the time given current restrictions, but I took this opportunity to think outside the box and have some fun. 

Nancy James has graciously offered up Schwartz Orchard for our September general meeting.  I let Nancy know that she is welcome to have her shop open in return for the use of her location.  (Because, I really want to go home with some donuts!) 

We will also have dinner catered by Baldy's BBQ & Catering.  (Aaron & Julie Lorence)  We need an accurate head count for food so it's important that you choose one of the two options listed below and RSVP to me at tammyresch521@gmail before noon on Monday September 7th.

We will once again be collecting donations for CCBA Food Pantry.  They are requesting non-perishable food items as well as personal hygiene products this year. You can also give a cash donation if you wish.  Please bring all items/cash to the September General Meeting.

Lastly, I'm excited to announce the first installment of our workshop series, "All about the Succulents".  All the details, including early member reservation will be covered in the agenda.

Take care and I hope to see you all at the meeting.
