Thanks to all who responded to the request for cardboard rolls or wrapping paper, we now have all we need. We couldn’t have done it without you!
However, baskets and raffle prizes are still needed. Perhaps a couple of you could get together and assemble a basket. Some ideas:
- Food, wine or spa basket
- Pasta, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, crackers, spices, nuts, or jams
- Lotions, note cards, napkins, tea towels, candles and mini candles
- Socks, powder, or lotions for a personal “foot” basket
- Hand crafted items
- Gift certificates
Think you are not good at assembling baskets? Just give us the contents and we will make up the baskets.
Raffle prizes, baskets, 2-liter soda bottles and 1 inch or wider ribbon in any color for the Fashion Show may be brought to the meeting on January 25. Forms will be available in the back of the ballroom for donation acknowledgement. Or, these items may be dropped off at Ginny Hutcheson’s house, 2494 E Bluejay Bluff Lane, at any time.
