Hello All! Hope you are enjoying your summer and staying cool. I am sending some updates for our next fundraiser, the basket social. We really need to get working on this, so this year can be even more successful. If you haven’t done so already, please indicate what you would like to help with by logging in to:

Next, I am enclosing a flyer for the social which I am asking you to make copies and distribute where you are able. We will have a team of volunteers tacking these up approximately one month before the event at local supermarkets.
Right now, our greatest need is getting volunteers to solicit local businesses for donations of baskets and/or gift cards. Please, consider asking businesses you frequent if they would like to donate something. Perhaps your hairdresser, butcher, farmers market, gym or even doctor etc. would be willing to help out.

If you have any questions, please let me know, and thanks in advance for all your help.
