If you weren't's some pictures of the fun you missed!
Thanks Amy for a great job hosting the Deal or No Deal game.
Hope to see you all in January...
the January meeting will be pushed back a week to the 8th

November Meeting: Share a Book or Business Night

We heard short presentations by our moms who have home based business. These included:
Vivian--Creative Memories
Erica--The Angel Company
Amy--Upper Case Living
Candy--Cakes 'n Crumbs

If you are interested in buying any of these products or hosting a party call or email these ladies and they will be happy to help you.

Members who didn't have a business to share brought a book to share.

Next month will be the annual Christmas Party. Bring an unwrapped Christmas ornament or decoration that will fit in a paper lunch sack. We will be playing a "Deal or No Deal" type game to win prizes! Please bring a snack to share. Shelly will bring her famous white hot cocoa!

Bylaw Changes

*UPDATE*: These bylaws were changed again in 2010 and, while very similar, are no longer the most up to date version of our bylaws. The new by laws will be posted soon.

New Bylaws were voted on and passed at the November meeting.

Our next meeting (October 2nd) will be used to discuss the proposed bylaw changes. Please bring your copies, questions, and ideas to the meeting.

The bylaws with changes can be found here.

September Meeting: Open House

This year's Open House had a "Hat Party" theme! We enjoyed snacks, including delicious caramel apples, and caught up with other GBAMOM members. Prizes were awarded for hats and for the hardest "fall" trivia contest ever! A special thanks to Nora for all her hard work!

In case you missed it Carrie B. let us know that the GBAMOM Fall Resale has been set for October 3-4. If you are interested in selling contact her to put your name on the list.

August Meeting: Saving Money

Our own MOMs Shelly and Theresa shared how they save a ton of money and get all sorts of items for free using coupons. If you missed the meeting but would like to learn more about saving money, the handouts are available at the following links:

  • CVS Handout--this is the main handout we covered at the meeting (written by Shelly)
  • Coupons---a general how-to (written by Shelly)
Some of the items you can get for free using coupons include: toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, pain relievers, women's feminine care products, gum, candy, food, and LOTS more!!

The blog we started to share deals is GB Savers. Feel free to comment and share any deals you find!
That's a LOT of toothpaste...
Theresa and Shelly brought in all the toothpaste they have gotten for free or more than free over the last few months.

Want to try your hand at CVS? Here is a good first transaction with internet printable coupons to "make" you some money!

If you have any questions email Shelly or Theresa and we'll try and help you out.

July Playdate

July's GBAMOM Playdate was at the Botanical Gardens. The children's garden area was a big hit with dirt to dig and water available! A picnic lunch followed. Here are a few photos:

June Playdate!

If you weren't at the June GBAMOM playdate you missed out! We made cards for Father's Day, played a bit, and had a snack. The turnout was great! If you didn't make it...consider coming in July!

May 2008 Meeting: May Appreciation

May Appreciation is always a time of good food and good company! It is fun to hear stories of how friends, neighbors, and family help out our MOMs. We also take some time out of the evening to uninstall our outgoing board and install our new officers. This year Pat H. did a awesome job as our hostess with a garden/nature theme including some great little prizes!

Uninstalling...thanks Malinda! Secretary Theresa

Good food

Good company

Appreciating those who have helped

April 2008 Meeting: Elections

Here are some pictures from April elections. We had a really good turn out and only a few positions were left open. If you are interested in planning any of the GBAMOM holiday parties or in helping with Publicity please contact a board member. Thank you to all who volunteered to help with the running of our club for the next year. We couldn't do it without you!
