At the February meeting
we will be learning to make Cosmopolitans. Bring your favorite
Martini glass (and a shaker if you have one). The ingredients
for making the drinks will be provided. Since it is the day after
Valentines, you can bring all those chocolates you want to share.
We will eat, drink, and be merry. If you think you may get too "merry" please arrange not to drive.
They will take the dresses starting Feb 21st, so think about getting any prom dresses ready for Shirley to take to them. We'll collect at the February meeting or you can bring them to Shirley in that following week. They want up-to-date prom dresses, purses, wraps, or jewelry to give to girls who have no prom dress or way to get one. (See website below.)

January Planning Meeting....by
At the January meeting we discussed the year 2004 and planned it out. Dues were due at this meeting.
They are $12 for the year. Randi brought a thank you from the girl we helped out with
a donation to go on the college visit trip. Sorry I do not have her name. We finished out the
evening with a regift exchange. There were 8 of us participating. Ginny came up the big winner
with another reindeer for her collection.

Sally called the community outreach person at the Las Plumas shelter and found out the following:
The San Jose Family Shelter, where we have donated our "shoeboxes" in the past, has an ongoing, critical need for bed linens and towels. They would appreciate us donating pillows, twin size bed sheets, and regular size towels. They will accept new or used towels and sheets. (They do have a few full-double-sized beds and will accept sheets in that size also.) Each family can stay at the shelter for up to 90 days. When they leave they get to take their linens with them to their new home.
Sally suggests we all work on collecting these items, bring them to the March meeting, and she will bag and deliver them to the shelter. Also, since the club has a large cash balance currently, we might consider donating some percentage of that to purchasing new pillows for the shelter. sally would be willing to scout out Mervyn sales, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target etc. for the best price. Perhaps this could be discussed at the February meeting (Sally will be out of town).
Shirley's March meeting will no longer be assembling shoeboxes, but will be the place and time to deliver your donations. If you can't make the March meeting, you are welcome to bring donations to Sally's house any time.
Looking for something new? Why not come to a new (for me anyway) ladies party! It's called Jazzie Jewels and the ladies are coming from Washington to present it at Don Pitcher's cousin's house in San Jose. The newsletter says, "Jazzie Jewels....Invites you to our Out of the Trunk Show, Bring home your treasures that very night. Styles and prices to fit your wardrobe! Earrings, necklace and earring sets, Jazzie "jeweled" handbags (sounds right up Ginny's alley), scarves, childrens jewelry, leather handbags and much more." Wine and refreshments provided.
When: Friday, February 13 at 6:30pm to 8:30pm (open house)
Cindy needs to RSVP so call her if you would like to go. (She says we can carpool if you like)
