Our next Machon study session is meeting January 23, 2o11 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at CBI. “Bring a snack to nosh on and let’s schmooze.” (This is a quote from Rachel Lessem!) Contact Rachel if you have any questions. Her number is in the directory.
We had a nice time touring Cornerstone Gardens last weekend. I am amazed that we all were able to fit in this picture. I think everyone found something that they liked at the gardens and perhaps due to the weather, it seemed like we had the place to ourselves.
Napa-Solano and Petaluma chapters at Cornerstone

Finally, if you have used toner cartridges at your house just waiting to be recycled, please check the list on on our blog http://hadassahsolano-napablog.com/qualifiying-toners-and-cell-phones-for-recycling/ If you have cell phones that you wish to recycle, please check the Funding Factory’s website. Our chapter is beginning a recycling program in which we will recycle toners and cell phones and in exchange, our chapter will receive money.

The next event our, 52/100, is our biggest fund raising event of the year. It will take place on February 13, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. The ”52/100″ works this way: You choose a playing card in advance and donate $100 for it; if your card is selected, you get $1000. If not, you still can win a door prize or raffle items at the event. Couvert (food costs) is only $9 this year as we’re focusing on desserts. It will be a fun, gala, local event, full of happy people supporting a great cause. If you are interested in attending, you may fill out the attached Invitation to the 52/100 and send it in.
