Let's Have Games and Snacks at Newhouse Shelter

To continue building our relationship with Newhouse, this event will be held with the occupants. Newhouse provides a safe shelter for abused women and children in the Kansas City Area. Let's spend some quality time with them by playing games and also provide snacks and refreshments. We will setup and collaborate first and then the games will commence by 6:30PM. The time that we share with the women and children counts towards grants for Newhouse.

The mission of Newhouse is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing the tools which allow women to make positive choices and lead self-sufficient lives.

    Thank you EVERYONE for first of all honoring your RSVP and involvement. That means so much to me and any other event organizer/host. Also thank you for helping to provide snacks and refreshments. Regarding involvement, what a great bunch of volunteers and it seemed to me that all of you were meant to be there. This type of event is about OTHERS and if I did not make you feel welcome then I sincerely apologize and would greatly appreciate you letting me know. Plans don't always go the way I hope, but I always hope that everyone was glad they came. If you are interested in participating again, then I would like YOUR ideas for games. Due to the friendly challenges while cleaning up, Skip Bo will already be on the next list :) I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a great year in 2014.
    'Til next time,

      Good ideas Vivian, thank you. I have good bean bags and brought them but don't remember if I took them out of the bin. If Cathy will also join us again (and bring Skip Bo) then that will give me enough confidence to setup the next event.
