General Information


Welcome! 

Hi everyone, 

We're now just about a month before graduation and the spectacular lock-in party!  While we still have a couple of events to go (Scrapbooking day on Sat, May 7, DeutschenPfest Wings N More booth from May 20 to 22, and flocking continues...), we also need to start getting ready for the party.

Attached are 2 important things:  

A registration form:  the earlier your child is registered, the more chances for a grand prize they get.  Please get them in ASAP!  This Friday is the first deadline to be eligible for 5 chances to win.  

A volunteer sign-up sheet:  please let me know what your preference is and what time you're able to donate.  We already have a few people signed up (Linda Casper, Diane Harvey Anderson, Olga Garcia, Kathleen Campbell will be there all night - if that's incorrect, let me know!) and I'd like to hear from everyone else re: your availability.  

Set-up:  We will be setting up on Friday June 3rd from 2 pm - 7 pm.  Please help if you're able!  We'll be doing a final check on Saturday between 12 noon and 2 pm.  

Saturday night: Since our graduation is at 6 pm, we may not get there until just before the event.  There are some non-2016 parents that have volunteered to step in and cover for us, just in case we're not there at a decent hour.

Forms can be found here CC2016 Forms

Thanks, everyone - this is going to be fun!

Diane

Our biggest fundraiser of the year!  This huge community event includes a reverse raffle, entertainment, dinner, door prizes, games, a silent auction and raffle items.  It’s a wonderful evening and we hope to see you all there! 

Ticket sales for the event will begin in January, 2017. 

Here's where we need help: 

  • Collecting donations!  To help, contact our coordinator, Miriam Moorman (miriammoorman@msn.com).  Silent auction items and raffle items are still needed to make this a fabulous fundraising event!
  • Selling tickets!  Pick up a 10-pack of tickets at the next meeting or arrange with a team member to pick them up.  
  • Working the night of event!  We will need help with the check-in, raffles, clean-up, etc to make sure that the night goes smoothly.  Sign up here to help:

GOODWILL DRIVE: 

Save your donations!  We are sponsoring a Goodwill Drive in April.  Please save any items that you would normally donate to a charity.  If you donate them to us for our drive, we earn money for CC2016!  If you don't want your donations hanging around the house, never fear - we have had a storage unit generously donated by Shurlock Storage at 805 Pflugerville Pkwy in Pflugerville and we can pick your things up!  Contact any team member. 

FLAMINGOS: 

Our pink flock of flamingoes would love to come and “flock” a lawn for a special birthday, anniversary, or just for fun! Cost is only $25! This is a unique way to surprise someone on their special day.  If you’re interested in “Flocking a Friend”, contact Head Mother Flocker  Cathy Cook at cathy_cook@hotmail.com, or Linda Casper at ghosthouse5@austin.rr.com,  512-771-3005.  You can find a flyer for flocking here.

We're still selling our 1200 Thread count sheet sets for $45, no matter what size. They come in aqua, black, burgundy, camel, chocolate, cream, grey, mocha, navy, plum sage, white, rust and lavender. They are as soft as Egyptian cotton and are very long-lasting.  You can find a flyer with sheet information here.
