Weekly Update -- October 28, 2018
This is the last few days of October---can you believe it, and you know how November flies by so hang on and stay busy with us!! Below I tried to recap a few Taste happenings, and please take a look at the few pictures and KCEN piece from Make a Difference Day. This club is certainly making a difference in our community.
This week is our 5th Tuesday Meeting/Social---and we are meeting at the CAC in Wendlend Hall for a Fused Glass Workshop. This is so fun, and you can still come even if you have not signed up. Please try to join us and we will have a great time in fellowship and working to create our masterpiece. Cost is $25, and you can pay on Tuesday night, hope to see you there!
Thanks to each of you for  'Serving Through the Seasons', 
Make a Difference Day
What a great Make a Difference Day we had yesterday----thanks to Jessica Kirkland (chair for the event), along w. Marsha Oliver-Sharon Schmidt-Sharon Tomlinson-Sandy Wicker-Michelle DiGaetano-Candyce Speidel-Marlene King (season leaders) who planned and purchased all the decor and supplies for the room.  I think we ended up with 33 members along with some awesome helpers to complete the transformation of the 4 rooms in less than 3 hours. Below are a few pictures and more are on Facebook of how the rooms turned out with all the beautiful new bedding & pictures along with some inspirational messages for the women at the shelter. We also put in 2 bookcases for a library for the women & children.
Below is also the link to the coverage from KCEN---very nice job on publicity from Michelle & Jessica!
Thanks again for this club coming together & the seasons making this place alittle brighter for the 'Our Ladies of the Angels' Maternity Shelter'.

We have 2 1/2 weeks before the BIG day. There are more work days for decorations this week and menu has their make aheads with turkeys next weekend and then the dressing coming up soon. Keep selling your raffle tickets and get the word out about making reservations before the end of the month. I think the last # I heard was we have over 420 reservations.
