"Project Lollipops"!

  • Jul 16, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Marcine's House


Who's ready to make washcloth lollipops and a few diaper cakes?


For our newer members, we have a fairly new project that we work on monthly for St.Rose Hospital (Dignity Health). They have a program called Family to Family that assists new mothers in need (income qualified) with basic baby and health care needs. The program receives about 65 new mothers each month. Our role is to provide 65 of the above lollipops to give each of these new-to-the- program mothers, as well as two diaper cakes. These diaper cakes are used in raffles within the program at the Director, Jennifer's, discretion.

It seemed to work out well last week with everyone having a quick dinner before heading over, as we found that the food part took too much time away from the project. I'll have some snacks, if you'd enjoy wine, please bring it. I will have all the supplies ready for you, yes, even extra scissors that WORK, ha ha!


I delivered our lollipops and cakes today to the office of Family to Family. The managers were overjoyed and the mothers that happened to be there were so excited! We really DO "make a difference", ladies! If anyone would like to come with me next time, please let me know.


This event will be hosted in a private home. Per our group's requirements, you must have attended a public event prior to a house party. Please do not RSVP yes if you have not done so. We will be doing this monthly, so if you are new to the group, please join us next time.


Pet Alert: Several cats reside here, although they will most likely be napping.

    Marcine, I am sorry to cancel so late. I just pulled my back out and I'm not going to be able to make it tonight.

    Cookie can do all of the heavy lifting for me... and the twisting and turning of the washcloths, in the meantime!

    Maybe a Sunday morning around 9:30 a.m. and the talented members could work on lollipops and I could work on cakes and then we could all go out to lunch someplace near Marcine's house?

      We can do that, Greta. We want to vary the times so everyone can be involved sometimes too. In fact, we'll shoot for September for that time.
