If you can’t get out to buy tickets, call Ginny Hutcheson at 520-906-0930 and she will even deliver them!
♥ DECORATIONS ♥ We don’t need any more cardboard rolls or wrapping paper—thanks to all who responded to that request. Now we need empty and cleaned 2-liter soda bottles as well as ribbon in any color, 1 inch or wider. Baskets and raffle prizes are still needed. Perhaps a couple of you could get together and assemble a pasta, wine or spa basket. Not good at assembling baskets? Just give us the contents and we will make up the baskets.
♥ DONATIONS ♥ Prizes, baskets, soda bottles and ribbon may be dropped off at Ginny Hutcheson’s house, 2494 E. Bluejay Bluff Lane at any time. Please put your name, address and items donated on the form in the box so we will be able to acknowledge your donations. Or you may bring donations to the meeting on January 25. [FASHION SHOW]

Planning is underway for this year’s event. The theme for the 2016 National Guard Baby Shower is “Read Me A Story.”
The shower will be held on June 25 at noon at the Air National Guard Base in Tucson. Please join us in helping with our endeavor! Our next meeting is Feb 8th at 11:00am at the Kino Conference Room.
All items for Baby are gladly accepted including cash donations. Any donations can be dropped off at Pamela Rodgers home: 2640 E Sawyer Rd (drop box on front porch!). Or call Pamela at 520-561-7969 for pickup in the Quail Creek/Green Valley area.
Remember, if you want to attend the shower in June you must be a member of the committee.
Don’t forget to save those travel sized toiletries for the homeless and hospitalized veterans. Note cards and calendars are much appreciated too. Here is the latest thank you we received from the VA acknowledging our donations from our December meeting: VA Thank-You Note.
You may bring items to the meeting on January 25. If you won’t be at the meeting, you may drop them at Peggy’s house at 1908 E Longspur Place.
Since they are doing a combined December/January shipment, coupons for overseas should expire December 1 or later and for the National Guard February 12 or later.
Expired or soon to expire coupons should be dropped off at Peggy Richmond’s (2731 E. Eba Court) or Judy Poffenbarger’s (2390 E Bluejay Bluff Lane) houses.
Clipped and sorted coupons for the National Guard only may also be left at Lois and Janet Connell’s house (539 N. Ramos Lane.) [COUPON PREP]
