Calling all Friends for a Team Meeting!!

Hi Friends for LIFE,
Just wanted to touch base with everyone and let you know we will be having a meeting in March. The date is set for Thursday, March 18th at the HomerHouse. I would like to start 6:00-6:30 but feel free to come from work and hang out until the majority arrives. We will have appetizers as usual. Email me if you need directions.
I will have incentives from last year to hand out including grand club shirts if you did not pick yours up. We will be discussing 2010 FFL team shirts (do we want them?), team fundraisers and activities the night of relay. Jen H has been working on a great project and I can't wait to have her share what she's been up to. Brandon Richard also has been working hard on a fundraiser and we'll talk about that as well. I bought the campsite decorations on sale after Mardi Gras so that is all set. I think camp will be smaller this year but that's ok with me. We will also be having the garage sale April 16th and 17th so bring any items you may have collected when you come to the meeting on the 18th. We only need to raise $40,000 to break a quarter of a million dollars, that's not too hard-right?? :)
We also have to come up with a give away for Survivors this year, I will explain more in detail but I can't wait to share that with you all as well. If you know of a survivor that has not been to relay, please invite them to come. They are what Relay is all about and we would love to help them Celebrate! They are still taking nominations for Torch Bearers so go to the website if you know of someone that you would like to walk in the torch ceremony.
PLEASE register if you have not already done so. The deadline for tee shirt sizes from the ACS is March 15th. Also, if you know of a sponsor that may want to be involved in Relay please let me know. We have a great sponsorship package for businesses this year.
There will be a silent auction this year, on Thursday March 25th from 6-9 pm at the Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum. Only 100 tickets will be sold. Dinner and two drink tickets are included. This is a LIVE auction with some silent auction items. The items are bigger ticket items so come prepared. :) If you would like tickets, let me know or email Kellie Jett is committee and would be glad to answer any questions you might have.
If you know ahead of time any supplies you might need (forms, stickers, cups, pens, etc) please let me know so I can have them at the meeting.
Thank you so much for being a part of our team. Whether you have donated to our team in the past, you have been or are currently a team member or you just provide us with emotional support, THANK YOU for your involvement. Our Hope is to one day find a cure. My HOPE is that my grand kids will ask, "What WAS Cancer?"

"We are friends with HOPE, We are Friends making a difference, We are Friends for LIFE!"
