Executive Board Meeting – Wednesday, February 27, 2019 7:00 p.m.

TBS Sisterhood Presents a Crazy Crafting Event “ Fun with Glue and Stuff ” – Wednesday, March 6, 2019 7:00 p.m.

This event is designed to lift your soul by having fun creating something different out of an old item (repurposed) or one that is new. The date is March 6, 2019. We will meet in the TBS community multi- purpose room at 7:00p.m. and start crafting immediately. Bring a tube of E6000 (found at Michaels) a small item that you want to decorate to look different and new. Some suggestions are: plexiglass 5×7” frames, picture frames with flat front edges, a small box, or perhaps a mirror. Michaels often has things that would be suitable. Use your imagination!!! All decorations will be there for your use and choosing. Good fun, laughter, a night out with old and new friends and a finished product to take home comprise this evening. A $5 donation is requested for Sisterhood’s Tikkum Olam fund. Mark your calendars for March 6, 2019 at 7:00 in the Community Multi purpose room at TBS. R.S.V.P. to ejcwiz@gmail.com
