When a family drops off their food contribution, there is a list to check your name; it is the responsibility of the family to ensure the name is checked off.

If you have questions about your food item on the list, please contact Carmen.details@rogers.

GIFT CARDS FOR EVERYTHING!

Purchase gift cards for your gas, and earn money for your travel account every time you fill up.  Buy gift cards for your favourite grocery store and earn money every time you shop.  Have Christmas presents to buy – give them a gift card.  Know a company that gives gift cards for Christmas, have them order them through you and earn more! Wedding gift, baby shower, Birthday, even just personal shopping - the opportunities are endless; it’s all up to you! This program allows you to purchase gift cards from over 100 companies.  Each gift card earns a specified percentage of $$ towards your travel account.

NOTHERS SENIOR OFFICIALS

I am looking for officials for Nothers Invitational (Nov 26-28 at CGAC). This is the first major LAC-hosted meet of the season, and is double-ended, so we need lots of officials. 

For all positions other than Timer and Stroke & Turn, please email mcdonald.denise.e@gmail.com. Let me know what sessions you are available.

If you have taken any clinics and would like to try out new positions, feel free to make requests and I will see what I can do. If you are comfortable working the ARES electronics or would like to learn, please let me know.

Thanks

Denise McDonald
