Last night was Ladies Night Out. (OK, it wasn't THAT kind of night - for why I'm not posting pics! I just didn't bring a camera.) Our group is mostly 20 somethings to 40 somethings and we "hang" one Tuesday night a month. I wrote about our December gathering when we made the charm bookmarks for the local crisis pregnancy center clients. Other activities have been: see a musical, paint pottery, try a new restaurant, have a game/snack party, learn contemporary line dancing, etc.
Yesterday we did a service project.Our fabulous coordinator heard that the thrift store owned by the same pregnancy center was in need of help. They sell donated clothing and household items and use the funds to aid the young women who come in to the center. (I previously mentioned the store as the place we donated leftovers from our Swap Party.) We sorted, straightened, cleaned, organized and displayed. They appreciated the assistance and we had lots of laughs. After a few hours we were ready to enjoy dessert and karaoke at Applebees.
Just wanted to pass along what I thought was a wonderful "inspiring idea" for a group of friends to do! Thanks, Kellie! :-)
