What a meeting!
Great Friends! Scrumptious Food! Lively Discussion! Plus a Call-In from the author of our book selection, Margaret Cezair-Thompson!!!!
Thank you Honored Queens!
For those who were unable to make the meeting, we missed you and hope you will be able to make our next meeting.
Next meeting will be June 25 at Allison White's house in Sulphur. Food Committee: Lea Durio, Allison White, Marsha Williams and Courtney Huck.
The book selection will be Mermaids in the Basement by Michael Lee West. Reading Guide attached. Allison has invited Tammeka head of the Literacy Council of SW LA to come to our meeting to discuss volunteer opportunities for promoting literacy that are already in place or new ones that she's been waiting for volunteers to help implement.
The group decided to support Literacy by helping our Pulpwood Queen Laurie Cormier bring reading supplies to Nicaragua on her mission trip in July. She will be sending us a list of needed items that we can contribute and bring to our June meeting. Laurie we're behind you!!
Also we will be releasing books into wild next meeting so bring one or more you wish to release!
