2nd Quarter Project: The District JOI students will be presenting this quarter’s Conference project. They have chosen to make ANIMAL TOYS for the local HUMANE SOCIETY. If you would like to donate, these are the items that we need:
– Washed old or new t-shirts
– Washed old or new towels
– Plastic shower rings
– Fleece (pieces or full)
– Toilet paper rolls
FUNraiser: Half the donations from the FUNRAISER will go to the District & half will go to the JOI students. This Quarter’s FUNraiser will be a Beer & Liquor pull. So if you and/or your Club would like to donate a 6 pack or bottle of liquor for the FUNraiser, please bring them to the 2nd Quarter Conference.
Contest: We have to find ways of staying warm in the winter so we might as well have fun doing it! Wear your best Hoodie & Hat to the 2nd Quarter Conference for our HOODIE & HAT Contest! We will have prizes for Best Hoodie & Best Hat.
Covid: We are following local government covid guidelines regarding masks & physical distancing. Regular & food grade hand sanitizer will be available at the Conference. If you have symptoms, we ask that you stay at home (you can switch from in person to Zoom for no extra cost). If you have been exposed to covid, we ask that you follow CDC protocol. Our main goal is for everyone to have fun and be safe!
