This Week’s News

I have been neglecting our weekly updates. I know there are several members who don’t use our Facebook page, and I wanted to make sure they got some news as well!
Our Newsletter is now available to read on our website.

Tuesday – Fun To Be Fit at Lakewood Ranch Baptist Church. Come early (10AM) to chat and catch up. Class will begin at 10:30AM

Wednesday – 4PM Arts Ablaze Studio Paint with the Elves and 6PM Santa Photos on Main Street

Thursday – 6:30PM Monthly Meeting Cookie Exchange at Town Hall. You may want to come early. I didn’t realize there was another event on Main Street that evening. We will serve a pasta dinner too. Join us and then you can walk over to Main Street for a carriage ride afterwards!

Friday – 10AM Kids Outing at Cookie Cottage and 6PM is Holidays Around the Ranch on Main Street

The Christmas party is over, and I wanted to make sure all of our volunteers heard how much we appreciated their help! Thanks to Kristen Raniere and Nina Zaveri for helping with the clean up and Deborah Ryan Hossenlopp for providing us with a pickup truck to get everything to and from the party!! And of course, big thanks to Jill Bennett. I still can’t believe you stood there in those evil shoes, super preggers the ENTIRE party!! You are amazing!
We also had four teenage volunteers. Three of the four are working to raise $1800 for a trip to sing at Carnegie Hall in March. If you have any jobs for them to do – car wash, mother’s helper, babysit, yard work, errands you need help with (at least one of them drives!), or maybe you want to hire some carolers for your holiday party, they’d be happy to help! Contact Shelly Bishop for their info.

We did the raffle at the end of the evening. Thanks to all who participated! Julie will give us an update with the amount of money we raised later this month:
