Time to have some fun, & raise some money to help Sarge & Mrs Sarge at the same time! :o)
Please help and spread the word through out your Division Groups!
We are short on days now (2 DAYS!!) OMG!!! (o:
All the proceeds go to Sarge and his wife. They provide and purchase the food and hold this amazing reception for all of us to feel welcome and get information about our SRs – just because we are families/lovedones of Sailors!
Let’s Pay it forward, Pay it forward!
Anyone that would like to put together a basket filled with items to represent your home state or items you have crafted, baked, or borrowed (& forgot to return to the neighbor that moved) ;o) Maybe you crochet, or paint, or knit, or woodwork.
Holiday themes: Thanksgiving is here, Christmas is coming, Football teams(go Bears!!) lol.. We can have many different baskets with many different things in them: Sports items, Challenge Coins. Blue Candles. The possibilities are endless, anything goes! Really it is whatever you want to bring. There is a dollar store and a Walmart right across the street for people to buy baskets if flying in. You can use gift bags,buckets, think "outside the box".
You bring it yourself to the Meet and Greet (M&G) and we'll raffle it off. OR you can mail it to the Navy Lodge and we’ll get it to the M&G for you!
So far I have a basket from Illinois coming....anyone else....would love to see some friendly competition between states or teams! :o)
