General Membership Meeting

Hi Ladies! Just a reminder that our next General Membership Meeting is this Monday, November 12th. New member orientation is at 6:30, followed by Social Half hour at 7:00 and the meeting at 7:30pm. Looking forward to seeing you all. A few reminders for the meeting: 1) TASTE OF SCOTLAND We will feature a SPECIAL OFFER for Taste of Scotland General Admission tickets for $60 each -a $40 savings (1 per person). You MUST attend the meeting to purchase a ticket at this special price. This offer is available to Junior Friends women exclusively, who are current in membership dues. JFs in good standing already can purchase one discounted ticket for $75. So, at this meeting you are able to buy one ticket for $60 and one for $75. Invitation is attached. 2) TOY COLLECTION At the meeting, the Programs Committee will be collecting gifts that will be used in TCC's Holiday store for needy families. They are looking for new gifts that are designed for children 3-5 year olds. Families love to pick dolls and doll houses, tea sets, dress-up sets, toy trucks, trains, construction tools—really any sturdy toys that can be used over and over again. They tend not to pick items such as drawing materials, play-doh, games or plush animals. Donations should be unwrapped. 3) HEATHER & GREENS Heather & Greens pre-ordered forms may be submitted at the meeting. Check out the amazing moss covered letters they are selling this year. You can pre-order those as well. ($10 for the small size, $15 for the large size) The attached photo shows the large sized letter. 4) DUES If you have not paid your dues, please do so as soon as possible to be a member in good standing. You can easily pay online at 5) DAY OF DUTY Day of Duty sign ups went out tonight! Please be on the lookout for the Volunteer Spot link. 6) EDC REQUEST If people would like to bring unused/ still packaged items to donate to please do so, and if anyone has tickets to sports events or gift certificates or other items they would like to donate (they don't have to have the current tickets in hand- say for next year football we'll have someone make a certificate).
