Our club started off the month by learning how to make wine!  Club members Diane & A.W. hosted us and A.W. walked us through each step of the wine-making process.  We were also able to bottle a previous batch A.W. had made so we could experience the entire process from start-to-finish.  The wine we made will now sit until June when it will be ready to be bottled!
The following week our club volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House Family Room in Overland Park.  The RMH Family Room provides a place for families to relax, eat, shower, and even sleep while they are waiting on hospital care for their family.  Our club made 40 baked potato meals for the families!
At our club meeting on 2/14, we heard from the Head of Community Outreach for the Shawnee Fire Department Community Support Team.  She shared information about their CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) training being held in April.  CERT training prepares citizens to care for their family and neighbors in an emergency.  If you live in Johnson County (you do NOT have to live in Shawnee) and would like to participate, they have openings yet!  More information can be found here:  Shawnee CERT
Lastly, we will be hosting our club’s annual Music Bingo fundraiser on Tuesday March 28th 6:00p - 8:00p, with proceeds benefitting KC Ronald McDonald House and The Golden Scoop!  Music Bingo is open to everyone and will be held virtually on ZOOM.  If you’re interested in learning more, please watch our website and Facebook pages for more information coming out this week!
