The success of our scholarship fundraiser is dependent on you and your contributions. At this time, I think we may have enough items for the nonfood auction. We do not have enough baked items. Please put on your aprons and go to your kitchens and prepare goodies for us to sell to each other as well as the other groups meeting at the University Club on that day. Please put your name on your item and include the recipe. I know small bags of cookies, brownies, muffins, candies or anything that can be packaged in small quantities will go quickly to folks coming through the lobby. Remember, we will have two tables in the lobby to catch everyone coming and going to other meetings.
LOGISTICS…We have reserved the Ballroom for our meeting on Thursday, April 20. If the Ballroom is not being used the day before our meeting for an evening event, we can set up on Wednesday afternoon about 3:00 pm. I have several volunteers who plan to come and you are always welcome too.
If you have a food item to bring that will not need overnight refrigeration, you may do so ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON BETWEEN 3:00 AND 5:00 PM. Pickles, preserves, jams, jellies, relishes and the like will do fine. Most cookies will also be fine. Some baked items may not do so well.
IF YOU PLAN TO BRING YOUR BAKED GOODS ON THURSDAY BEFORE THE MEETING, PLEASE BRING THEM NO LATER THAN 10:30 AM. We would be grateful if you would put a suggested price on your items.
One last reminder…..The member who brings the most guests will receive a really nice prize. Don’t forget your checkbook and lots of cash. If you have questions, please give me a call at 919-782-1984. -- Lou Mitchell
If for some unforeseen snow, ice or inclement weather, please follow the guidelines of the Wake County School System. If the Wake County schools are closed on our meeting date, we will not plan to meet as scheduled. We will also inform you regarding a possible refund for your reservation fee. The University Club will make that decision and we will not know anything until after the “snow day”. Your patience will be appreciated until we can have that discussion with the University Club.
