The Lone Star Chapter gets creative with Moms’ Meeting

This last November, the Lone Star chapter decided to try something different to keep their mom meetings exciting and well attended.   Sheri Bastie, V.P. of Philanthropy, came up with the great idea to have a Philanthropy Fair.  At this meeting, the moms divided up by grade level and worked on projects for four of our philanthropies.  For Metrocrest Social Services, they made candy poppers out of empty toilet paper tubes, covered them with wrapping paper and tied on the ends.  For Dallas Life, they made gift bags containing Bibles and journals.  For Meals on Wheels, they made gift bags with note cards and stamps and, for Support the Troops, they made gift bags containing a Starbucks gift card or an AT&T gift card to be handed to each member of the military as they stepped off the plane.  Since everyone enjoyed the fresh venue, the fellowship with the other grade level moms and helping out our wonderful philanthropies, they are planning on it again for next year!
