Special Events/Activities:

President’s Pillowcase Challenge:

The President’s Challenge is for every member to make at least one child/teen focused pillowcase, so that we have enough pillowcases to donate to Southlake POGO/Pediatrics and Doane House in November.  We’ve done so well that we’ve upped the goal to 200 pillowcases now.  Please add your pillowcases to fulfill this challenge.
