Are You Ready To Party?
Eat, Drink, and Be
Mardi… Gras!

Now that the Thanksgiving feasting is finit and the winter holidays are soon to be fond memories, there is but one event looming large on our agenda… the February Fundraiser - A.K.A. Mardi Gras!  The number one question each of us faces now is:

What will I do to contribute?

Here are some suggestions to think about:

  1. Think about what you could donate for the silent auction.
  2. Think about making a cash donation.
  1. Think about what businesses you could contact for a donation after
      the first of the year.
4.   Think about who you will be bringing as a guest(s).
  1. Think about wearing purple, green & gold (some or all those colors) on February 9th.
  2. Think about cleaning out your costume jewelry box for our Beads Boutique.
  3. Think about any ideas or suggestions you might have and call Pam Anderson at 423-7364.
  4. Oh, yes, and don't forget to think about those smiling faces and tearful expressions of gratitude when we present our scholarships in May.  It's not just a wonderful day for us - it's the start of a wonderful life for them.


Thanks to all of you who continue to rise to the occasion - whatever it may be - to make the New Smyrna Beach Branch of AAUW shine brightly.  I wish a wonderful winter holiday season to you and your loved ones.
