Beginnings and Bottles

Hello everyone:
I trust you are all enjoying the summer, thus far.
We are in the final stages of the baby bottle campaign. It was a tremendous success. So far, we have received donations of $5,662.51. And I am quite sure there are more bottles still out there waiting to be picked up. This is enough to keep the centre open for another year! God is good!!
It is a lot of work, counting and rolling.....but it was also a learning experience. We already have come up with better methods to count the coins (thanks Jocelyn) So if you still have bottles out there, please drop them off asap. Linda VW will be purchasing large plastic totes to store them in the basement. It would be nice if we have close to 400 bottles stored again.

I have received a reply email from Kerry Vandergrift at Beginnings. Two members of the Beginnings Board of Directors would like to visit with all the volunteers at the centre on August 9, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss our dedication and focus for Room2Grow. This is a very very important meeting.....please try to attend. Please let me know if you can attend, so I can inform the Beginnings Board of Directors. They have sent me a list of questions to complete prior to their visit. It has to be returned to them by August 1. I will leave copies here at the Room. Please feel free to put your comments in before the deadline.
thanks everyone
be safe
