"I think we have to appreciate that we're alive for only a limited period of time, and we'll spend most of our lives working. That being the case, I believe one of the most important priorities is to do whatever we do as well as we can. We should take pride in that." Victor Kiam
The November We Can meeting was held Tuesday, November 1 at Carolyn's home. Those ladies in attendance were RaeLee, Barbara, Judy, Patti, Vila, Ardis, Ann, Paulette, Phyllis, and Carolyn.
We worked on four projects. We filled 10 Christmas stockings that will be sent to soldiers in war zones for Christmas. We completed 100 shape toys (these go in school kits and are mainly being sent to Afghanistan). We also made more than 30 dog chew toys.
These will go in Christmas stockings for dogs and are sold at the gift shop of the Festival of Trees. The fourth project was a tag in the shape of a Christmas ornament. The tags go on the dog socks and say "Merry Christmas from Santa Paws" with a picture of a dog wearing a Santa hat. Ann and Carolyn's cub scouts will finish filling the dog socks with a tennis ball and dog biscuits. We also collected candy for the Children's Justice Center Christmas Hats project. Besides working on service projects, we enjoyed a nice pot luck lunch.
We will be going up to Salt Lake City to attend the Mother's Without Borders Boutique, Saturday morning, November 5th.
Our next meeting will be on Monday, November 28th. We will be going up to the Festival of Trees to set up our Chirstmas tree and take any craft items you have made to the Gift Boutique. Bring a lawn chair, snacks and drinks. Festival of Trees will run from November 30-December 3 at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy. It is open from 10:00 a.m to 10:00 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at the door or through Zions Bank .
