Please check out the following updates
Mums – Ashley Tubb + Katie McMenamin
Time is winding down and there are only 5 days left to order MUMs. We have to get the final order in to the grower by 9/12/2023. Please share the order link:
on your social page and in an email to family and friends. If someone lives outside of Wyoming, they can indicate a Wyoming address to have the mums delivered for them. There isn’t anyone that couldn’t use a mum to spruce up their front stoop or porch with some fall flare. Mums’ deliveries will occur on October 1, 2023
Also, we need volunteers to facilitate the mum’s operation on the day of delivery. Please refer to the sign-up genius below to help out.
September General Meeting
Our first general body meeting of the year will be TUESDAY September 19th at 7pm. The new member huddle will be at 6:45. It’s never too late to invite another woman to the meeting who may be interested in joining. The official start of business will begin at 7:30pm.
Membership – Lindsey van Leersum + April Robles
Don’t forget to renew your membership for this coming 2023-2024 calendar year! Below is the link:
September Service Projects – Amy Goodman
9/8: Carthage School could use some sprucing up! Please consider purchasing or donating money toward the purchase of mums (sold via JWC… double winner!!) so we can liven up their school. Once you sign up, please confirm when you’ve purchased & use the option within your order to donate a mum to Heartfelt Tidbits.
9/9: Heartfelt Tidbits is holding their gala at the Civic Center. They’re looking for volunteers during set up (10am-11am), registration/silent auction during the event (5:30-10:30pm) and clean up (10:30-11pm). This is a great opportunity if you have a teenager that wants to be involved as well! Please use the Heartfelt Tidbits SUG link included to sign up. If you haven’t volunteered for them before you will need to register, confirm your email and then you’ll be taken to a page where you can sign up to volunteer. We know this is an extra/atypical step and we sincerely appreciate your help in this. Please let Amy Goodman, Amy White or Sophy Wolke know if you volunteer.
9/14: Friends of the Public Library needs help organizing a closet at their warehouse just outside of Wyoming. Please dress in casual clothes that may get dusty. You’ll even be able to do a quick private shopping experience if you’d like to take a look around.
9/19 & 10/3: Please consider donating candy or small kids’ toys (think party favors, happy meal toys, etc.) for the booth at fall fest. We will take donations of these are the meeting and take donations at Amy Goodman’s house (441 Springfield Pike – gray house behind the multifamily across from be.) or Beth Brigger’s house (129 E Mills) by Tuesday, October 3.
10/7: We’d love to see your faces running JWC’s fall fest booth! We need help with setup, running the booth & tear down. Nothing major if needed to run the booth. Just a smiling face, willing to chat about JWC and hand out goodies to the kiddos.
Last but not least, the amazing Becca Barry is looking to hand over the reins to a new liaison for Friends of the Public Library. In this role, you’ll coordinate service projects/needs with Alexia (Executive Director) and Becca and let me know monthly what we can do to supposed FPL. We’d love for someone who has a passion for FPL and is or wants to become a regular volunteer there to be the point of contact.
