Dear Club Members,
I love the month of November. Normally, the temperatures are falling as are the leaves and the smells of turkey and pumpkin pie (comfort food) to bring on the holiday season :) My wish for all of you and your families is to have the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with your families near and far and to have safe travels. Thanksgiving to me is Family.
I do hope to see you at the November 16th meeting when our speaker, Shelley Brooks, Director of Bethesda Mission for Women & Children will tell us all about the mission for women and children and how we might be able to help them. Hopefully we will be able to bring items for the women and children in January, especially during the harsh winter months.
For the November meeting please bring an unwrapped toy that we will give to Toys for Tots. Last year the box was overflowing when I put all our toys in the box. I know we can do it again.
Well, the pie orders are in and it was a little disappointing that we didn’t meet our goal from last year. Remember to pick up your pie order at the Red Land Library on Tuesday, November 24th from 10:00 am - 8:00 PM.
A big thank you to Deb Hammond and her committee for an awesome Soup & Bake Goods Sale on Election Day. Read her article for the good news.
