YEARBOOK: The CBWC 2009 / 2010 yearbook is ready!
Plus, this year we have very nice new light blue covers. All current members will receive the insides to update their yearbook, but if you would like one of the new covers, they are available for $7.50 each. Of course, incoming new members will get these covers with the yearbook info inside as part of their induction. If interested in purchasing a new cover, please contact any of the Board members to place your order.

The Artful Bra Project.
The State has adopted a fun project to keep breast cancer awareness in the forefront, and we are excite
d to participate. Each member has the opportunity to decorate a 36C, padded bra on the outside, inside and straps. This is a chance to get really creative! We will use the decorated Bras our members make as table centerpieces at our January Fashion show. Then we will take them to the State Spring Convention in April and enter them in the FFWC State competition and show. At that time, all the bras will be sewn onto padded hangers, which the State will supply, to prepare them for going "on tour". Needless to say, they hope you will allow them to keep the bras. A time line has been created to allow each district to display them three to four weeks each. Again, this is to heighten awareness about breast cancer, but is also lots of fun. If you need some ideas or want some clarification, contact Julia George at 868-7393.

Holiday Craft and Vendor Fair:
We still need help for Saturday, November 21st. Funds from this event help to cover our club expenses during our various service activities.
We need yummy bake sale goods, as well as volunteers who are willing to help decorate and/or monitor the tables.
And of course, we need you to get your friends and neighbors to come to the event! Please contact Julia George at 868-7393 if interested in helping in any way. Thanks!

Volunteer Hours tracking:
It's that time of year again--the annual State reports about our service activities. Did
you know that each member needs to report their volunteer activities from January 1, 2009 thru December 31, 2009?

Look through your '08-'09 yearbook to remind you of what you've done to help during 2009. Examples: if you baked/brought refreshments for one of our monthly meetings, count the hours you spent baking and the estimated money value of what you brought; count the number of hours you attended planning meetings around events or department specific meetings, including related phone calls; count the financial contributions you made to any project/activity including personal checks, admission tickets, raffle tickets, etc.; count the estimated value of any items you donated.
When you write these items up, make sure to put the date, related event or department, hours contributed, and money contributed.

Don't forget to put your name on the page and give this info to Jean Carey or Pam Kendrick by the January 7th meeting in order for it to be included in our Club reports.

You'll be surprised at how quickly our volunteer hours add up!
