We had such a nice meeting this month. It being October and Halloween is just around the corner, some of the ladies showed up in amazing and extreme costumes. When I get some of the photos forwarded to me, I will post them. There was great imagination shown, not sure if I will ever forget Johnny Depp, Grandma B. or the Cereal Killer.
Just some reminders of upcoming events. We are signing up for the Christmas Party to be held on December 3. The cost is $10.00 per member and a fun time guaranteed. Also, we are having a Stocking Challenge held at that party. Make a pretty sock for a child who is hospitalized for this Christmas season and put in a teddy or a cute stuffed animal and bring to the party. Your name could be randomly selected from all participants and you could win, something. Not sure what yet, but it will be good. It was also mentioned that we can do the Ornament Exchange too, it is popular every year. Just make a sweet ornament and put in bag and be prepared to exchange with a member. It usually involves a lot of right and left movement though, just be warned.
For our November meeting, bring a canned good or nonperishable to the meeting and it will go to the food pantry. This meeting will also be held the Second Monday of the month instead of the Third as we don't want to interfere with deer season and all that entails (or entrails, if you get a deer...). Carol R. needs volunteers to do Christmas present demos for this meeting also. It should be fairly simple and quick and we appreciate all those who demo for us too.
Here is a really cute idea for Halloween, especially for those with grandkids. I think I have to try them out. Have a great evening. Diana
