We had twelve (12) kids and two (2) Helpers
(Lacy and Nykki) in the Kids Club in November. They made colorful Disk
Fish to take home. They shared what they were thankful for and
what they wanted for Christmas. This was an awesome group. I
totally enjoy being with your kids!!! The club is looking for ways to get
members involved in monthly activities. I would like to attend some of the
meetings so we are asking for volunteers to oversee the activities for the
kids. You can come up with your own activity or I will have
something set up for you to
do. The next opportunity to volunteer is January General membership
meeting. If you are interested in getting involved please see Miss Donna.
Food Donations: The results
of your generous giving allowed four less fortunate families to have food for
the Thanksgiving holiday and some reserves for their pantry. This
event allows us as a whole to give back to the community and it does make a
huge impact on the lives of the recipients. Thanks for your continued
