Happy November to everyone!! Hoping to see everyone at the meeting on November 17th at 7:30 pm. We will be welcoming Christine Metcalfe, a librarian from the WSSD who will be speaking on school libraries and how valuable they are for the students in our District. Vicky Ann Trimmer, who is our State President, has as her special project, "Let Libraries Rock" and that is what our club is going to do. We will be presenting Christine with a book to put in the libraries of Red Land High School, Crossroad’s Middle School, and Fishing Creek Elementary School.
As you will see in Deb Hammond and Janet Yanella’s reports we are really raising the money for senior scholarships and other projects. Thanks Deb and Janet for your hard work.
A special "thinking of you "to Mary Faith VanNoy and Barb Coulter, who are having some health problems. Mary Faith is still receiving chemo and Barb fell and broke her wrist in two places. Please keep them both in your prayers.
A few reminders: if the doors are locked on meeting nights come to the back door and knock; continue to bring food items to each meeting for the food bank; and save those soda tabs.
The Chatterbox should be filled with lots of news so sit down, grab a cup of coffee/tea or a soda and relax and find out how our club is doing.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERY MEMBER AND YOUR FAMILIES
