Walkway of Lights will be Dec.27 and 28. A volunteer sign up was passed out. It was decided that no more than 3 volunteers in trailer, per shift, because the space is so small. All are needed to bake cookies. Please put cookies in individual baggies for the sale. We will also do hot chocolate and get 4 cases of water to sell. Judy will reach out to other area clubs so they can come out and see what we do.
Our Christmas party will be at Painting Pallet in Marble Falls on Tuesday, Dec. 10. The cost is $50 per person, due that night. We will paint an Aggie theme item that we will donate back to sell at Boutique. Candi will pick 3 designs that we can pick from that night. She will also select the correct colors. A sign up sheet was put together and an email will be sent to get an accurate count. Count is due by this coming Tuesday.
For Boutique we decided to use Dani’s idea of making 2 gift type baskets/ packages for a raffle instead of making several different things to sell.We will do one for a guy and one for a girl….all things for a dorm room or apt. Perhaps sell tickets for $5 each. Boutique is April 17. Hotels are booking up fast and are also very $$,it was mentioned.
New Business: Judy asked if we wanted to donate to Marble Falls Project Graduation. We decided no because we would need to donate to the other schools where our members are from.
Keva gave the Tradition…the history of the Aggie ring. It was very interesting and went into more detail than what our speaker had discussed. Judy thanked all who brought yummy refreshments. Candi’s daughter won the big $40 fun money! Door prizes were drawn. Meeting was adjourned at 8:00.
