Ladies Tea and Craft Coordinator
Thank You for All Your Support Over the Years
Since this is my last article as craft coordinator I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has taught a class at our rallies, especially Peggy Morris who has pitched in when I really needed a class. Also thanks to everyone who helped me set up, clean up or assisted in teaching a craft. Thanks to everyone that attended the classes I hope you enjoyed them. I know Suellen will have lots of new things for us to enjoy.
MONACO AMERICA LADIES’ TEA
What can I say but thanks to all the ladies that hosted a Tea through the years. I have been very proud of all the support we have given to the numerous community organizations through the years. Ladies, you did good.
The Goshen Tea will support The Ronald McDonald House in South Bend, IN at the October 2016 rally. They have three separate requests: The Ronald McDonald House, The Cart With a Heart, and Stitches of Hope.
Ronald McDonald House needs are: Gift cards to Walmart, Target, Office Depot and Office Max, Meijer and Martin Grocery stores, also phone cards. Individual chips, pretzel and Doritos snack packs, single serve cereal boxes, granola bars, pudding and fruit cups, juice boxes, bottled water, coffee. Also toilet tissue, air fresheners, paper towels, dish soap. Postage stamps and copy paper. Plus the usual personal care items.
The Cart With Heart: They take snacks, juices, water and cookies around every afternoon to the patients and parents. The little individual packages are best.
Stitches Of Hope: This group provides clothing for anyone in need while they are there. Baby items are needed especially quilts and blankets. Since it will be close to Christmas items for teenagers would be welcomed. They are unable to accept any used clothing, toys or appliances.
We had decided at the Rayne Tea we would like to make a huge donation of pop-tabs. So save ‘em and bring all you can collect.
On June 9, 2016 The Rayne Acadian Tribune printed a front and second page picture and article about our donations to the Daily Manna and the Veterans Park.
As this is my last report on The Ladies Teas, it has been a most rewarding and memorable time.
