*Al's Alfajor Hat in Spud & Chloe Yarn.
*We bought the yarn in the Outer Banks 15 months ago.
It marinated just perfectly don't you think?
*I've been marinating some thoughts in my mind lately.
Winter is coming and I have to embrace the cloudy days.
Help! How do you handle the cloudy dreary days?
*Our big fundraising Gala is Saturday for the shelter.
I've been in charge of the cork pull.
Translation: Get Wine bottle donations of 30 to 50 dollar value.
You pay 20 bucks, pull a cork with a number on it and get that bottle of wine.
We have almost 50 bottles for this year, so that's a thousand for the shelter right there.
Last year they sold out in 7 minutes.
I have to say people have been very generous donating the wine.
This is one small part of the big Gala.
I feel that being on the Board of Directors is a big donation of time and energy, but I think we are making good changes.
I think fundraising is a big part of being on a Board.
I do think I'll transition to volunteering in my own new neighborhood in some way next year.
As much as I love the shelter, its a 90 minute drive to complete my term and responsibilities there.
I guess I didnt' imagine the house would sell so quickly etc when I was ask to run for the board in April.
What are your thoughts?
So many of my bloggy pals volunteer in one way or another.
I do think it very important to give back.
Have you learned from your volunteer experiences?
