Gift card idea makes much more sense as the added cost of shipping the items could be additional money they could use. I can also get VISA gift cards for free as an employee of Chase so let me know if that would help.

State of Texas Employees

I don't know how many people, if any, who are coming to this meet are employees of the State of Texas. But any who are know we are starting our annual SECC campaign. I discovered that Give Kids the World is a listed charity you can have a payroll deduction taken out for. This is an opportunity to give $10.00 a month (or more) each month for a year to GKTW, and just have it deducted from your check. It's a relatively painless way to make an ongoing contribution even after the meet in October.

I am going to change the first post to say in lieu of bringing items from the wish list we will be collecting gift cards to various locations so they can purchase items. I will check in with their fundraiser coordinator for a list of locations that they need gift cards to and will update out information once I receive it.

That's great. I was wondering what cards would be best, in addition to places like Target and Office Depot. Thanks for all your efforts in doing this. You're doing a great job!

No, put me down as attending. I worded it poorly.

I'll be there unless something unexpected happens. (work travel shouldn't since I have a 2 week trip scheduled for that Monday but who knows). And on the off chance something does come up, I'll be sure to let you know beforehand.

Good evening everyone.

I believe I have the attendee list current and up to date. If I have any of you listed as maybe's and you know for sure whether or not you are going to be attending please let me know so I can make that adjustment.

I just set the appointment with the venue and the deli to go and meet with them and discuss set up of the room and the exact food that will be donated. I am still working on gathering items for the silent auction and the raffle. If you have items that you want to donate but haven't gotten me the information yet please drop me a note! msc2slc@att.net

I added an exciting item this afternoon to the Silent Auction. k5jmh (Christy and Mike) from Spring, Texas are currently on the London/Paris ABD trip. They have purchased a bag from the Paris Disney Store and plan to fill it with goodies from Disneyland Paris and Paris. They are also asking other ABD travelers on the trip to donate some items to the bag. Once we have a more thorough description of the bag and it's contents I will post them here. It will be late next week sometime.

I hope everyone is getting a break from the heat. I know here in Aledo we are having beautiful weather. I just hope the cooler temps stay until AFTER the football game Friday evening.

If you have any comments, suggestions or questions about the upcoming event please post them here or drop me a line directly. msc2slc@att.net

Thanks!

Suzette

Just in case I missed anyone on the maybe list when I sent out emails this evening...

I am meeting with the deli on Wednesday, September 21. I need a firm head count by the evening of Tuesday, September 20. Please drop me a line and let me know if you will be attending.

THANKS!
