Fall… a beautiful time of the year with the leaves changing, basketball season starting, soup and Apple cider time!!! As we all start gearing up for the Holidays, I would like to share some information and dates with you.
Our October webinar was a great success in many ways. Our Chapter raised about $400, 33 people registered for live webinar and 13 for the recorded webinar. Kudos to all involved to make this happen (Deb Steveson, Diana Hampton, Mary Pyatt, Donna Greer)!!!!! October was also our membership drive. We had 4 guests. Remember, you do not have to wait for a membership drive to invite guests. Invite someone for our November meeting. “ Be the ONE” to bring our next Tri-County member!
· Please promote the sale of our Bergner Community Day Booklets by either purchasing a booklet for yourself, selling one to a friend, family member, co-worker or neighbor. If you were not at the October meeting, please contact me, Judy Zimmerman, via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone @655-2057 to request booklets. The booklets are $5.00 and our chapter retains the full $5.00. The booklets will still be available at our November meeting as Community Days are November 9 & 10.
· The November meeting is also the last opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for the quilt. The chances are $1.00 each or 6@$5.00. The drawing will be held at the November meeting.
· Bring your “Box Tops” and “Dress for Success” donations!!
Information: We (TC) entered the Avery award program last year. For each chapter that didn't win the 'big' prize, a $5.00 donation was sent to IAAP. Here is the notification from Avery (letter attached):
