Recap of October 2019 Meeting

First off I want to congratulate all those running for office. I was quite impressed with your speeches! Great job!!!!!

Also, I want to pass along Shelly Mathis' regret that she has missed some meetings due to her graduate classes. She is still functioning as our club advisor (discussing ideas with me and making sure I have what is needed on the agendas) and staying up-to-date on our happenings.

Community Service - The Holidays!
The club approved a budget of $200 for Operation Christmas Child.  (About $20/box for 6 boxes + $54 shipping). The club will shop next month after the meeting in Kremmling.

Families can bring shoeboxes and items for the boxes if you have new items that can be given (e.g., markers, crayons, yo-yos, pencils, sharpeners, scissors, etc.)

The club voted to spend $150 again this year for 300 cookies for Granby and Kremmling tree lightings.  Families will each make 2 dozen cookies for each tree lighting as well. 

Shelly will contact Starla and order cookies.

Moms please see Tree Lightings details below for assignments on what to bring.  Let me know if there are changes that will make Granby tree lighting work better.  We will discuss at November’s meeting who will be able to volunteer at Granby.  

The club voted to contribute $100 to West Grand Wishes and $100 to Joyful Givers for Christmas.  

Achievement Night - October 19th at 6:00 p.m.
Dinner will begin at 6 PM at the Dance Hall on the Kremmling fairgrounds. 
Homesteaders are to bring “Sides”--not green salads.
Your serving should be enough for 15 or so people.

** Update - Council would like each family to bring their own place settings to cut down on cost and trash.
