Plans in the works!

We saw a lot of pictures from the Belize 2012 trip in our weekly meeting tonight. I think I speak for the group when I say seeing where we're going and some of the experiences we'll have makes us even more excited for the trip. It seems far off, but then the realization that March is really only a few months away hits, and I think of all of the planning that is still left to do! Plane tickets are soon to be purchased, supplies are planning to be collected, and fundraising is still in progress!

We're making good starting progress on our fundraising. We have done the bake sale, a first round of collecting bottles, and we have started selling tickets for donation for our Gift Card Christmas Tree Raffle. The next event is the Pampered Chef party on November 28 at 6 pm-- We hope to see lots of people there! (More information included in the Pampered Chef tab above)-- We are planning to do another bottle drive on December 1st-- Please help us out by donating your bottles! Another fundraising event is planned at Texas Roadhouse on December 6th from 4-8 p.m. (more information to come). Thank you for your support by checking up on our progress!

Our Bake Sale in the Union will begin 11:15 a.m. tomorrow morning! This is our first fundraising event and we are very excited about it. We will be featuring lots of baked treats as well as our Gift Card Christmas tree. The Gift Card Christmas Tree is a raffle we will be doing to help raise money for our trip. We have $200 in gift cards to stores and restaurants in the Orono and Bangor area. We are accepting a $5 donation for 6 raffle tickets, or $1 or one ticket. Please stop by and visit us for some sweet treats to get you through the day and learn about our trip! We will be located across from the Book Store in the Union. If we miss you Tuesday, we will also be there Wednesday from 9:45 to 3:00. We hope to see you!

Fundraisers Coming Up

We're making great progress in getting fundraisers going as well as setting up travel plans. We have a bake sale in the Union at UMaine scheduled for November 13th and 14th where we will also be introducing our Gift Card Tree Donation Raffle that has $200 in gift cards! Our bottle drive previously planned for this coming weekend (the 10th) has been re-scheduled for the 17th. Keep saving your bottles for us! In addition, we have set up a fundraiser night at Texas Roadhouse on December 6th from 4-8 pm. We will be passing out flyers to friends, family, classmates, peers, etc. If you come to support us at Texas Roadhouse and present your flyer, they will give us 10% of the bill! Please remember our Pampered Chef Fundraiser as well! There is more information located in the Pampered Chef Fundraiser tab above.

We are also making headway on travel plans. Next week is our prospective meeting for ordering plane tickets. We have guests planned to visit us to talk about travel safety, immunizations, and culture in future meetings.  Our adventure gets closer as each week passes and I think I speak for the group when I say we are all very excited!
