Update on Cookbooks and More
Lubbock Marine Parents has been very busy lately! Mark your calendars for these upcoming events.
The cookbooks are selling like hotcakes! We have sold most of them already so we are thinking of ordering another printing. We want everyone to be able to get one. I have been using mine and the handsfree stand that comes with it is REALLY nice. We will have the remainder of our current printing for sale at Meet the Teacher Night at Crestview Elementary, 6020 81st Street, August 23rd from 5:00 to 6:30pm.
We are planning a fundraiser garage sale for September 1st. Our biggest challenge in shipping our care packs is always paying for shipping, so the money from the garage sale will be used for that. If you are in the area and would like to donate items for the sale, please let me know.
If you live in the Lubbock are and you have a loved one in Iraq, AT&T will be providing video calls on August 21st from 4 different camps. Among those are Al Asad, Camp Taji and Camp Victory. I don't know the 4th, but I will try to find out for you. Please let us know, and we will get you set up for that.
We are planning a Ruidoso, New Mexico scrapbooking retreat for the weekend of October 5th, through October 7th. Please let us know by September 15th is you would like to attend, so we will know what size cabin to reserve.
Our next meeting will be August 30th at 8:00pm at Daybreak Coffee on 19th and Quaker. We will be planning our September kick off for the Christmas care pack drive.
