There are no more totes to be had and we do not plan to order more this year. Thank you for so eagerly supporting this project. And thanks for so generously feeding the piggies at the holiday luncheon. The pigs coughed up $304.22 for the scholarship fund so we now have a head start for the 2017 scholarships. We won’t start fund raising activities for the 2017 scholarship program until school opens in August. The next project for the scholarship committee will be to review the applications which are due by January 31.
Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page and Like us and Share us with your relatives and friends. This week we added a short video about the upcoming Fashion Show. [View & login here: TWOQC Facebook]

You will help the homeless and hospitalized veterans have a Merry Christmas, secure in the knowledge that they have not been forgotten.
Thanks to all who brought gifts for the ladies at Genesis House to the luncheon this week. If you would still like to donate a gift, you may drop them at Claudia Ullevig’s house, 730 N Alexis Loop.
