Thank you!  We appreciate all the members who signed up to be “Cookie Angels” and “Table-Scape Decorators!!”

If you are an “Angel,” please remember that we need 3 dozen sweets (brownies, mini muffins, cookies, or any treat of your choice) for the meeting.  “Decorators” plan on arriving a little early (6:15), so we can set up the table for all our “Angels” and members.  Our May 21st meeting “Decorator” will be Karin Cermak.  Our May “Angels” are: Marilyn Wright, Delores Creekmore, John Fingerlin and Karin Cermak.

Big Hugs to Hannelore Ramanayake for coming in early and making coffee the last two meetings!  Thanks to our April “Angels”: Karen Lamb, Suzanne Magee, Carol Mulcare, and Mickey Henderson.  Many thanks to Suzanne for her darling bunnies and gorgeous Delft flower arrangement!

Thanks again and we’ll see you at our May meeting!
