Six more weeks of winter so says the ground hog. It’s nice it is daylight until almost 6:00 pm plus the warmer weather has been a blessing. Plans are underway for Arts night, Education/scholarships, women of the year, spring banquet, soup/bake sale, and play fundraiser. Plan to attend the activities and help with our fundraising, we cannot do the quality work in the community without your involvement.
The board members were brainstorming to come up with a replacement fundraiser for our Apple Butter. Some idea brought up were a Chicken Bar-B-Q, Lunch on the Patio at Daren Kamps, rent table at Library yard sale in spring sell remaining apple butter plus a white elephant sale with items donated by members or rent space at Newberry Businessman’s Association carnival in fall. If anyone has another other ideas or suggestion please let us know.
Karen will be running the general meeting this month as I will be in Oklahoma visiting Janelle and Tom. Looking forward to spring and seeing all of you in March.
