Astra Club Members – Since we are unable to host Community Christmas this year, all of the clubs are donating items to make holiday bags for 500 kindergarteners in our area. Astra Club is going to donate holiday books for the bags. These should be paperback books about snowmen, gingerbread, Rudolph, Santa, etc., that can be for a boy or a girl. Please do not bring any books that are specifically for a girl or boy. These are due by TODAY to Mrs. Prothro. Each member is asked to bring 2 books. Do not wrap or label them in any way. Each book will count as one hour. Also, each member needs to come by Mrs. Prothro’s office, and vote how to spend our dues. The forms will be in the green container on my desk.
