Going Green: Green Planet...Let's Plant Something

With Earth Day only FOUR days away (Thursday, April 22) we thought what a great opportunity to learn a little about going GREEN and GARDENING. I mean, these days that is all we hear...go green, save our planet, no more plastic...ahh you get the idea. I am sure some of you are totally intimidated about the idea of growing your own food. However, it isn't that hard and wouldn't you like to walk outside late summer and grab a tomato off your plant? Tomorrow join me as we learn ways to do just that! You can make your garden a simple Topsy Turvy OR till up your whole backyard, the sky is the limit!
See YOU in the morning!

Our Great Moms Walk

Our Great Moms Walk is coming up on Saturday, March 15th at Jamestown Park and we need to start raising funds. The money will raise will help to lower our dues next year, provide scholarships for moms who cannot afford our program, and cover general costs that each meeting has. If each mom collected just $10 from 10 different people we could easily meet and surpass our goal of $1,000! Here are some ideas of people you would want to send letters to:
- family -friends -doctor -dentist -restaurants -photography studios -book stores -toy stores -real estate companies -hair salons -kids entertainment places

It helps if the business is familar with you and your family. Maybe consider delivering the letter in person to a business owner you know and whose business that you frequent. Keep in mind that the donations are tax deductable because we are a 501 (c)3 organization. As you ask businesses, please reply all so that we all are not approaching the same people.

For those of you who do not like asking for money, you could really sell that this is a great way to honor your mother or grandmother for Mother's Day. We will be making and printing "cards" to give to the woman that you make a donation in honor of ___________________.

There will be an awesome prize to the top fund raising mom! Plus, each meeting between now and the last meeting, a small prize will be up for grabs to any moms who raised funds that week. This Tuesday at our April 6th meeting, we will be giving away a prize to one ladies who either raised the most money so far, or who sent out the most letters. You can do it ladies. It's for a cause that you obviously feel strong about =)

Let us know if you have any questions,
Heather Waldridge and Melissa Howard
