A few announcements from EDC (Event Donations Committee)

Katelin Moomau and Kristin Kalanick Husak do an AMAZING job and contribute in countless ways to our events throughout the year.

There are two flyers that I have uploaded to the Junior Friends facebook page. The first flyer is a list of businesses that have donated to our events in the past year. Many of these businesses are places where we all are frequent shoppers. When you stop in, please let them know that you are a Junior Friend and tell them that their donation means so much to us. We want to continue to grow all of these relationships.

The second flyer is a list of ways that YOU can help EDC. Please consider joining this fantastic committee or simply pass along ideas, suggestions, or donations to Katelin and Kristin.

Hope to see many of you next week!
