Monday, June 3rd, Women's Club meeting and social, usually held in the Community Garden, and everyone brings an appetizer and wine ! The Women's Club does not meet during July or August. Please join us. the Garden is on Swayze Street, next to the Rodeo Grounds and the NEW Community Center. Call Rosie for details and an agenda ( which is very small for this meeting ) at 238-1662. If you have any items to donate to the Bingo Burger Bash Raffle - please bring them to this meeting.
Thursday, June 6th BOOK sale at the Library. 10 AM - 5 PM. The Library is across Adams Street from the Elementary School. The Friends of the Library are selling way more than just books: DVD's and some nice wrapping paper (new) and cards (new) and all sorts of puzzles ( new) and maybe some baked goods, and drinks - you will not be disappointed. The Friends fund the Children's Summer Education Programs. These are held in July at both the Library and also the School Lawn and Basketball court.
June 8th, Saturday, the Women's club will host the annual Bingo Burger Bash, at the Community Garden, beginning at 4 PM with a delicious dinner -- then, at 5 PM, the Bingo begins. the Women's club will be selling adult beverages ! This event is co-hosted by the Creston 4 H ( they cook the food ) and the proceeds are split. If you have never attended this event, it is so much fun. The Bingo is fun, but, there are also a whole bunch of cool raffle items, which are rather easy to win. Each item has a little brown paper bag next to it. You can buy, say, $10 worth of tickets, and then, go around the tables and pick out the items that interest you, and then, just drop one of your tickets into the brown bag. There could be as few as 10 tickets when the "bidding" closes, and you would then have a 1 in 10 chance of winning that item ! Cheri Roe won three items last year, and all were "treasures". The items are all very different, so, there is "something that interests nearly everyone" - in my humble opinion !! There is also a MONEY HAT with lots of real CASH attached. There is a raffle for the cash. Call me ( at 438-3543) if you want to buy tickets for this event: $25 per person. the Bingo has a $50 cash award for each winning card. There are 10 games, so you have 10 chances to win the $50. The Women's Club sells only 100 tickets to this event, so, there is a pretty good chance of winning !
CCA's Swim Pool Poolooza party will be held on August 17th. The Swim Pool is funded by cash donations from the local community ( you will get a flier in the mail ) and from the proceeds from this huge, fun, exciting party.
