About our Club
Our end-of-year lunch will be at Scotland Run at 12:30 on Wednesday, June 21. Last year we all enjoyed our lunch and catching up and sharing summer plans. A sign-up sheet will be available at the meeting or you can contact Denise and Linda to RSVP.
This will be our last function as your Social Entertainment Gals.
GWCM Lunch Box Program
June is here! To the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries (GWCM) Lunch Box Program this means the time to start packing lunch boxes. The volunteers meet on Monday mornings from 8:30-10:30 at St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church in Woodbury.
The volunteers pack non-perishable foods for the children of the GWCM food pantry clients. Parents will pick up the boxes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from late June until late August (about 10 weeks). School supplies will also be distributed in August.
Do you have an hour or two to spare on Mondays this summer? Do you know a student in need of service hours for school or church? Come join in this fun and worthwhile activity. Monday, June 12, is the first day for Lunch Box.
Contact Joan for more information.
Summer Book Club
Denise H. has volunteered to host our book club in August during the change-over in chairpersons. We will be reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
It is a story of a grumpy old man who has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. But behind Ove's cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations.
Please sign up at our June meeting and we will choose a date, probably August 22 or 23. Or email Denise H.
Designer Bag Bingo
Friday, October 20, 2017
West Deptford Middle School
For tickets: 856-853-0211
Each month a Coordinators meeting is held in order to advance our timeline; make decisions and vote on them; and prepare for the next Designer Bag Bingo fundraiser—just five months from now. Eleven designer handbags were purchased along with several tiebreakers. During this month of June, we need to secure all of our sponsors for these bags. This allows us to apply in July for all the required licenses needed to run our bingo event.
Denise Hosier has given our Bingo logo a new look using the colors green and purple. Our Bingo flyer and program will have a new format as well.
Joanne Keegan has purchased various supplies needed to run our Bingo games. Supplies needed were rolls of tickets, daubers, and Bingo game sheets, which Joanne has replenished. Joanne and Linda J will work on securing large baskets for our forty themed raffle baskets. We would like club members to consider working in small groups of two or three in order to gather items for a "theme" basket of your choice. Each basket can contain items from businesses and/or items donated by club members as well. To comply with NJ law and West Deptford School requirements, please, NO WINE, LIQUOR or CORDIAL, and NO LOTTERY TICKETS.
The Bingo committee is encouraging
all club members to "shadow" a
coordinator of their choice in order to learn, participate, and be engaged in our Bingo evening in October. This once-a-year large fundraiser ensures that our treasury will be replenished and our contributions to charitable causes in our West Deptford community and beyond will continue.
Thank you to all the members who tirelessly continue to work toward our goals for the next Designer Bag Bingo fundraising event.
******The next Coordinators meeting will be held on Thursday, June 29, 7:00 p.m., at the home of Carol M. We encourage all Coordinators and members to join in on learning more about the timeline and how to engage in being a Bingo event volunteer.
In club friendship,
Linda J, Donna B, and Carol M
