Dee has created a slide show from our old photo albums for our viewing pleasure. You don't need to bring anything because Dee will be providing special appetizers and desserts- just come and enjoy! Please RSVP to Dee by April 19 so she'll know you'll be coming and she'll be ready with enough food and chairs. This is a meeting not to be missed!
Help Requested: Those of you who are still in
contact with Rosanne, please invite her and have her contact Dee.
Also, Dee is requesting a new home for the 12 LM photo albums, either one volunteer to house them all, or each of us can take one home.
Twenty-five hearty souls turned out for an evening of fun. Some merely "gabbed" while others "competed". The ultimate "Masters of the Game" were Sally Brooks-Schulke and Keith Roessler. Second place went once again to an all-women team of Vicki Rasmussen & Sue Ballard.
March Meeting Report
- from Shirley
We had 8 ladies willing and ABLE to make origami creatures and shapes. We tried a couple of simple ones together (hearts, stars, boats and
butterflies) and then branched out to try a shark, penguin, bumblebee and a couple of things we never figured out. We could try it again at a
meeting or coffee if people enjoyed it. I see a definite learning curve and we could all improve next time! We had a short meeting and collected many bags of pillows, bedding and towels for the San Jose Family Shelter, which Vicki took over the following day. The club also made a donation to Buchser Middle School to help supply
the science labs that burned in their fire.
Ladies Spring Fling
Shirley reports that there is still space available for the Russian River getaway, so contact her if you want to join the fun!
