feb/march 2010

candy sales are done! whew! this felt like a really long drawn out candy sales for me, i think having two kids selling is a big part of that. we made it through and we will be getting a nice check to add to our camp fire account which still have a pretty good balance. i will be ordering bead looms for us soon, so we can all start learning how to bead bracelets and headbands. we can take our bead looms to daycamp and work on projects there as well.

camp shiwaka will be august session 3 from august 9 to august 13. i will be there the entire week with the kinder group and can spend time with both groups. this works best for me because i will only be taking off one week instead of two. we will have a daycamp meeting when we get closer to the end of the school year. we will be earning a special patch/award that week as well. lets make day camp super cushy this year, if you have old blankets, pillows etc that are ready for the garbage, hold on to them for camp this year. we want to make a really cool hang out to relax in this year.

next meeting is feb 22 at danica's house, new address will be available soon. we will be having a new member join our group sophia shroeder, if you know her at school, be sure and welcome her to our group. she will need a few buddies to help her learn about camp fire, let me know if you would like to help with this.

pinewood derby has been postponed and may not happen this year, let me know if you are interested so i can keep you posted.

march 20 cake auction neighborhood event, 6:30pm at the camp fire counci (this is NEW UPDATED INFO) each child will bring a cake (homemade or bought, preferably homemade) with whatever crazy decorations you can come up with. the cakes will all be displayed and then auctioned off to the highest bidder. there will be awards given in several categories. it would be a great event to take grandparents to or anyone who would enjoy purchasing a cake from you, your camp fire group or to help support camp fire. i will post more info as i get it. if you have two kids in camp fire, you only need to bring one cake.
