Thought for June by Lucie King

“Come Celebrate! The sun is up!”
The birds did sing,
And so I opened a weary eye in hope that it was spring.
To my surprise, what greeted me was a magical affair
The wonderment of new beginnings was present everywhere.

Dress A Girl Around the World Project by President Pam

Sharon Miranda and Pam Barrett for Dress A Girl Around the World

We had a very nice turnout for our Dress A Girl Around the World celebration on May 23.  Eight members of SITS joined us.  SITS President-elect Nancy Muller reported our district made over 600 dresses and the region made over 4,000. The Northern California DAG Ambassador Sharon Miranda told us how the DAG project was created.  I announced that our club made 208 dresses!
Our club’s individual winner is Roxie Upton who made 40 dresses that her daughter will take to Niger and Madagascar.  Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in the project whether you sewed dresses, made a monetary donation or helped us stuff panties in the pockets of the dresses and roll them up for distribution.

Attendance Reminder

Just a reminder to all that your RSVP to the weekly attendance notice is important.  

  • We need to give Harrah’s numbers by 12:30 on the Monday before a meeting.  An accurate count keeps our expenses way down and helps Harrah’s plan the amount of food they need. 
  • Remember that if you register properly you will receive both an immediate acknowledgement at the site AND an email thanking you for registering.  
  • If you forget or think something is wrong, you can email or call me to get on the list. We always try to accommodate you.
