We have a service opportunity on Saturday February 4 to help with North
Fulton Charities from 2 to 5 p.m. Fifteen volunteers and two adults are
needed for a three hour commitment this Saturday. You will need your own
transportation.
Also, on Feb. 25 we will be going to Foster Care Support from 9:30-2:00
p.m. We need 15 kids and 4 adults. Both places are in Roswell.

Please give us your ideas for service that we can complete as a group. Some
ideas are: serving at a soup kitchen, volunteering at a nursing home, etc.
Give any ideas to our officers.

Lab Sign ups:
All are taken at this point.

Flag Take down and set up:
The flag needs to be put up and taken down daily. Whoever signed up just
left it up and needs to come down daily. Please see Mrs. Stovall or Mrs.
Murphy if interested in earning hours.

Christmas/Winter care packages for our soldiers:
We did not receive very many items for this project, so we will continue to
collect these items through April. Kendal Cano suggested that our club have
members donate items for soldiers as a community project. Check out
www.give2thetroops.org for ideas on what to send in. We will collect the
items through January. Members will receive one service hour credit for
every four to five items brought in for the soldiers. A maximum of 3 service
hours can be earned
T-shirts: Please pick up if you haven’t already. See me if you don’t have
one, so we can give a refund.
