What’s New with CJWC: (from Facebook)

During Shot@Life's Blogust 2015—a month-long blog relay from 8/3 - 8/31— some of North America's most beloved online writers, photo and video bloggers and Shot@Life Champions will come together and share inspirational quotes for their children. Every time you comment on their post using our CJWC Facebook page, one vaccine will be donated to a child around the world, up to 50,000! It will only take you 3 minutes to help a child in a developing country!

To subscribe to Blogust via email, visit Blogust.org. It is free!

Please email me when you have commented on a Blogust post
and posted it on your Facebook page so I can keep a total of how many vaccines our club donates. dianeglasgow1@gmail.com

Thank you Senator Black for the lovely card you sent us. It meant a lot to us all. ...

And we are off and running. Had a Board Meeting tonight and it turned into a planning and strategy meeting for Santa's Workshop. I can't believe we're only 4 months away from it again. If you haven't already, contact Cheryl Thomas, our Vendors Coordinator. We only have one spot left and there are 12 people on our waiting list. We've got 150 Vendors coming!! It's going to be our biggest/best show yet!!! ...
