For the more expensive items and those that don’t get purchased, DGC has $300 reserved for the B&G Club to help fill their needs. The money came from last year’s bake sale and from Donna Morrison.
Boys and Girls Club Holiday Store – Maureen is looking for a team leader to help Leslie purge and organize the items left from last year’s holiday store and to come up with a list of items needed. She is also looking for a team leader to organize the decorating, granny elves, etc. at the holiday store the week before Christmas. Mary has the aprons from last year.
Holiday Gift Bazaar: DGC and the Community Center are co-hosting the holiday bazaar scheduled for Sunday, December 6th. We will have 2 free tables for fund raising efforts. Looking for our creative types to make 1-2 crafty items to donate for the sale. We will also have baked goods and will be selling Christmas boughs. Kim Sophia suggested selling boughs at the Tree Lighting ceremony the night before.
Library Team – Marilyn: Good quality current books can be donated for future book sales (year 2000+). They made over $300 at the July 4th booth!

Jeri is hoping to have a tour guide lead us around. There are some picnic tables there but plan on bringing a chair. There is no cost. For lunch we can either bring a picnic lunch and enjoy it there or we can partake of one of the many restaurants on Missouri Flat Rd. More information will be available in the Bloomin’ News.
