All the stuff we could dig up!

Food Committee Report

The food committee chairman is not attending this year's reunion so the executive committee has decided that the menu will be the same as last year:

Hamburgers / Hotdogs / Salad / Chips

Everyone needs to bring there own beverages
We need volunteers to man the grill.

Please bring a dessert for the desert table!

A volunteer is needed to purchase the food and deliver it to the reunion. Or if this is not possible we need a volunteer to gripe that there is no food at this reunion.

Entertainment Committee Report

There will be a bubble gum blowing contest for both children and adults.

There will be a piñata. Volunteers will be needed to help.

The entertainment committee has not reported in. The executive committee has decided to repeat the 'Tricky Tray' as the primary fundraising activity. The rules are as follows:

There will be seven 'baskets' or raffle prizes.

You can purchase any number of tickets and spread them between baskets or put them all on the basket you want to increase your chances of winning. (That's how two people won two baskets each last year!)

Everyone should bring something for the basket which corresponds with the month you were born. For example someone born in November should bring something for the "Holiday Helpers" basket.

Everyone is encouraged to bring things for the other baskets as well if they have things that fit the category and were planning on getting rid of it anyway.

Ask Katie (Advice for the under 5 Set)

Dear Katie,
      I have monster problems. I move around a lot from toy room to toy room but this monster is following me. First he growls right behind me. I look but he is not there. Then he gets mad and becomes real stinky. He is behind me a lot. I think my mommy is scared of him too cause she puts me in another room. But she can see him cause she always yells his name which is 'Phew!'. Also he is short because he never follows mommy and me to the new pants table. But it is time to get rid of this stinky smelly guy. I can't out run him. What should I do?

                        Much ado about Phew

Dear Ado,
      I get many monster letters (There are 101 different types) "Phew" is known by all. First get your facts right. Yeah, he is short and smelly and noisy and fast but mommies are not scared of them. The new pants table is magic and gets rid of "Phew" and mommy knows this is so. What you do when "Phew" starts scaring you is stick real close to the mommy. Follow her from room to room and stay close. This somehow makes the mommy put you on the magic table. Don't worry, remember "Phew" is short. So as you get to be a big kid then he goes away forever. Good Luck.

Ooh I see something that I can reach and I do not know what it is but I am going to try to eat it!
