Our Foods project members met last Monday. Project meetings are a great place to present your demonstration! And Foods meetings are fun because there are cookies!
Achievement Night is this Friday, November 2 beginning at 6:30 p.m. I hope you all plan on attending. There are members in our club who will be receiving awards so it would be great to show support to them. I also know there will be dessert. It starts with a slideshow, and there are pictures of several club members included. Join us in the exhibit hall at the McKee Building.
Our community service Turning Pens for the Troops will be on Sunday, November 4 at Woodcraft. Members including Cloverbuds and any new members are encouraged to come and turn a wood block into a beautiful pen to send to our service men and women. There is plenty of instruction available so no experience is necessary. Please sign up on the club website under Signups. If there is a time filled up and that is what works for you, email Cindy and we can probably work you in. We need to fill all the time slots as there are over 100 pens to create.
The Foods Project meeting for November will be held next Monday, November 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the McKee building. Anyone interested in a foods project, please attend.
