April Service Sign Up

Happy April!  This month’s SUG is a light one but has some AMAZING opportunities to get out.  Kudos Kids will be hosting an in-person event to sew pillowcases!!!  Make sure to grab your spot on Chyi’s new porch.  We will also be helping out two local volunteer events.  First, we will be assisting in food donation/collection for a new organization in Wyoming.  Please use the link on the SUG for their google form to sign-up but also put your name on the SUG here so I can track hours.  We have also been asked for help with Wyoming’s UpCycle Day (hello Freebox on steroids), volunteers will help with directing cars and unloading.  Again, please use the link on our SUG to go to their SUG to officially register but include yourself on ours for tracking purposes.  Let me know if this is confusing or if you have any other questions.  Can’t wait to see you all out and about!!!  Katie McMenamin, katieconrad@jwc-wyoming.org, 937-304-7083.

Board Positions

Sponsorship Chair Needed:
Please consider joining the JWC Board as our Sponsorship Chair! It’s an important position that you may not know much about, so here’s a little info from former Sponsorship chair Katie Conrad:


“All the work is done by October!!  – So many of the sponsors are local organizations with strong connections to the club so it is an easy conversation to have and low pressure!!  I never ever felt like I was having to “sell” it to anyone. (No “cold calling” necessary!)- You have a small team working with you.  As the chair I felt more like the coordinator for my team.- I found it personally to be a great way to start to get more involved, to meet a lot of people and to join in on the fun of the board.”


If you’re interested or would like more info, please reach out to Becca Barry. April 1 is the deadline to let the committee know that you’d like to run for board election! For more information about Sponsorship and the other board positions, please click here.
