Just a word of thanks to all who brought in canned food items to the last general meeting. The collection was over 200 canned items that were delivered to Hardeeville Food Shelf. That is amazing. Thanks for making that effort a wonderful success.

NICU Creations/ Community Project
A recent change to the name of our group will be noted on the website. Though we continue to complete items for Julie’s Mission and our Community Projects, for the sake of space on the website heading, our name their is listed as Community Creations. The mission of the group is the same.
As a reminder, the Bar B Q, a Julie’s Mission fund raiser, is March 11. There are 2 seatings, 4:30pm and 6pm. Location is the Pavilion. Cost per meal is $15 with both eating in or take out available. Contact your neighborhood JM leader, or give me a call, for ticket info.
Our Community project has expanded again. With the overwhelming response to the Fire Dept project, we have many blankets that we wish to be used by children in our community. With this in mind, and the board approval, we will provide blankets to 4 of the area elementary schools. The blankets will be in the nurse’s office, as the child is lying down, waiting for their parent to pick them up from the school. The nurses will accept responsibility for the laundering of the blankets when needed.
Thanks to all who make these efforts a wonderful part of our club.
If you would like to join us, please do so. Our monthly meetings are the second Thursday of the month from 9:30-11:30am, in the Sewing room.
For more info, give me a call.
