Snowmobile Trips: our annual club trip to Phillips, Wisconsin is scheduled for February 16-20, 2017Cards for a Cause Fund-raiser: There are three different box sets available. Two of the sets come with all occasions, birthday, sympathy, baby, get well, blank and one set is strictly kids cards. Each box contains 30 hand-made cards, is reusable, and comes with dividers. The club has purchased the box sets for $17 apiece and will be selling them for $30 a box- profiting $195 on the sale of 15 boxes. Any club member can take orders for the cards- very similar to how Girl Scout cookie sales work.

Several Board members are in need of a break, so if you have any interest in volunteering to be an officer, please consider doing so at the February meeting. If you can’t make the February meeting, let me know, and I’ll pass along the good news.Norge Ski Jump: Last weekend’s Norge Ski Jump in Fox River Grove was postponed due to rain.
