Itinerary ~ September 3-7

We need volunteers to help cut, iron, and sew flags for our Color Guard. Fabric will be in soon and we are gathering our village. All parents are invited to help … even if you can’t sew, we can put you to work cutting or ironing (and it counts for your volunteer requirement). If you would like to help please email Yolanda Melendez at MayfairColorGuardLiaison@gmail.com for more information.

Thank you for supporting our Yogurtland fundraiser! If you have any pictures to share, you can upload them here. Next up … California Pizza Kitchen on 9/16.
