What: Easter Baskets for a Shelter
When:  Thursday, March 15
Host:  Joan

Las Madres is at Joan's this month. We will do our charity night. In lieu of shoeboxes, we will fill some of those empty baskets crowding your home, full of nothing special, waiting for something to do with them. Here it is! Bring your baskets and a random supply of toiletries, small items, some Easter candy for the children's basket, some cello wrap if you have  that, ribbon etc. We will fill the baskets for the shelter.

Our condolences to Ruth Eastman and her family on the recent loss of her mother.

Adult 8-Ball
When:  Saturday, March 17, 7:30pm
Where:  Casa de Gomez
What:  A Little Friendly Competition
What Else:  Bring an Appetizer or Dessert (Sodas & Coffee provided)
RSVP:  Ginny (anytime)
Bring your "skills" to our ___th Annual 8-Ball.
(Ginny could use the loan of a few chairs.)
