If it is OK with everyone, I would like to make the October meeting a little more special than usual. I would like for everyone to think about someone that they could bring to the meeting-- just to introduce them to our group and see what we do. There is no commitment on their part. I will have door prizes, and maybe a few other surprises. The date of the meeting is Thursday, October 21, 2010.
If possible, I would like everyone on the mailing list to make the effort to come to this meeting. I know several of you have children, other responsibilities, etc., but this is just one evening during the entire year. We would all love to meet everyone that has contributed blankets, money, or material. PLEASE, PLEASE mark this date on your calendar and make every effort to stop by - even if it is for only an hour.
All the people that have said that they are really interested and want to be supportive, but can't find the time to come regularly, PLEASE try to find the time for this October meeting. I am asking this far in advance in hopes that all will be able to mark it on their calendar and attend. We will have all of the blankets, scarves, and hats out for display (except for the 100 hats that have already been donated). Plus, you will get to see baby kitties as an extra bonus!!
At the September meeting, we also need to discuss the items that we didn't get around to in August. See the posting on August 12, 2010. This would also be a great time to discuss anything else you have questions about or to offer any suggestions. We are getting ready to go into our second year, and I am so excited that we have been so successful.
