Welcome to our new officers for 2017-2018. Paulette P. as Vice President and Marylouise D. as Treasurer will join Beth L. as President and Denise S. as Secretary at the front table. Thank you for your support in advance. The 4 of us look forward to a wonderful club year!

WPWC MEMBERS PRESENT- “OUR ANTIQUE COLLECTIBLES”

Thank you to Greta W. and several other club ladies for getting together sort of an “Antiques Roadshow” from their collections. I don’t know much about what is planned but am waiting with anticipation to see what the ladies will present at the July 17th club meeting.  Thank you to Vicki C., Claire N., Maureen S., Kathy H. and Linda H. who will be our refreshment hostesses for the evening.

PROJECT HEALING WATERS

Project Healing Waters will take place on Wednesday, August 2nd 10AM- 2:30PM at the Indian Mountain Rod and Gun Club on Route 534 in Kresgeville. Ladies will be needed to make salads and desserts. About 8-10 ladies and, men as well, Darryl and Don were the “masters of the grill” at the May event, will be needed the day of the event. There was a signup sheet at the June meeting for working the day of the event and for making the salads and individually wrapped desserts. It will also be available at the July meeting. After speaking with Heide Cebrick, who is coordinating the event, she would like us to make BBQ chicken. It will need to be prebaked and then grilled the day of the event.

EFFORT SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD PANTRY/VALOR

We are collecting food for the Effort food pantry and for VALOR. The number of clients the Effort pantry provides for is down. They are a supplemental pantry and people are only able to go to Effort 12 times in a lifetime. By that time they should have found a regular food pantry home such as PVEN.

VALOR is collecting for their stand downs for the homeless and the homeless carry their items in backpacks. VALOR needs tuna, peanut butter (small bottles) pop top meals (such as Dinty Moore beef stew) ramen noodles, individual pop top canned veggies and fruits. They also can use razors, shaving cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hotel size shampoos, conditioners, soap, sunblock, meal bars, new socks and new men’s underwear.

YEARBOOK 2017-2018

Thank you to Linda B. and Linda T. for putting together our 2017-2018 yearbook. The new yearbooks will be available at our July meeting. These ladies do a great job but please check over all your information and make sure they didn’t miss something.

CIP-GARDEN CLEAN UP AT THE TRIANGLE

Pat M. wrote, “Thank you to the following members who took time from their busy schedules to help clean up the gardens at our CIP beautification project in Brodheadsville on June 28th.  Andrea L., Michele H. (brand new member), Pam B., Phyllis B., Carol R., Darlene B. and Pat M..  What a great way to show our pride in America by flying our patriotic flags and beautifying our little corner of the West End for the 4th of July holiday!” Thank you ladies for helping keep our gardens up as such a lovely welcome for visitors and residents alike driving on Route 209 and Old Route 115!

CLIPPING

Keep collecting, clipping  and counting your coupons. If you have questions, please contact

Carol E. or Claire N. The coupons should be dated May 2017 or later.  Make sure you put your name and the number of hours you spent on a paper with your coupons. You can call Carol or Claire if you have coupons ready to go or bring them to the next meeting

GETZ PERSONAL CARE HOME COOKIE SOCIAL/ VOTE to be taken at the JULY MEETING TO DISBAND THIS PROJECT AFTER AUGUST

The Getz Personal Care Home visit will be Wednesday, July 12th at 2:30PM. Thank you to the ladies who were our club representatives in June.
