We will continue to collect coats and accessories until at least the end of this year. It was so wonderful to deliver our collection to date to Hope Bridge. There were 17 coats, 2 pair of ski pants and 10 hand made scarves. All of the items will be given free of charge to people in need of warmth. Way to go!!! Thank You ! Anyone can drop off additional items at any of our general meetings.

If you have some new and extra Christmas cards, please bring them to our November general meeting. The cards will be by signed by members. It would be fun if some of our youth (kids and grandkids) could also write a short message inside the cards. We will be delivering these cards to the residents when we go to sing and visit in December. It really warms your heart to experience the caroling!

October 26th, it’s almost here! Your opportunity to finish most of your Holiday shopping in one day. We have over 140 crafters and artists selling their items. Be sure to invite your friends and relatives to share in the day. The event is open from 9am to 3pm, so you have lots of time to shop. Coffee and treats are also available for your enjoyment.
We still have some volunteer opportunities open on both Friday night for marking spaces and on Saturday to help out. Friends and relatives are also welcome to join our volunteer crew and get to shop too. If you are already signed up to help, thank you so much for making this event a SUCCESS. We couldn’t make a difference in our community without your help! Contact Rita @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

The Women of Today Organization, has had several name changes since its start 70 years ago. Originally it was part of the Jaycee’s Organization, it has helped women to improve their lives and find their places in society over those many years. At Winter State Convention in January, we will be celebrating the 70th Anniversary of our great organization. Please try to join us for this celebration at the Doubletree in St. Louis Park. More information will follow in the upcoming newsletters. If all goes well, the State Program Manager for Living and Learning, Sarah Sundine and President Cat will be joining us at the November meeting and we will be starting the meeting at 6:30 both in November and December when we have our Holiday party. I hope members will come with support and questions. Don’t forget Make a Difference Day is October 26th, where millions of volunteers will unite in a common mission!-Rita J.
