Instead of making “Book Thongs” for the Barnes and Noble Fundraiser, we will be making “Angel Marks” with ribbon (instead of string) this year. Marguerite and Carol will be ready to show us how to make these during the meeting… By the end of the meeting, we should have a good supply ready! What fun!

If anyone is interested in making the cards to hold the “Angel Marks” this year, please let Marguerite know. Email Marguerite Suggs at:
