Update on December Activities

Happy New Year to all of the Fabulous Women! I hope you enjoyed your holiday festivities! The Winter Season is always a busy time……that’s why our group took a break during December. Although our group didn’t meet, the Fabulous Women adopted two kettles for the Salvation Army. Chantel Smith and Anastasia Schuster helped organize the shifts. We had a kettle outside of Copperfields and G&G Market. It was awesome because it was pouring rain on that particular day, and the ladies embraced the challenge. Some of them even brought their kids. The Fabulous Women raised the most money for Petaluma on that day. Thanks to everyone who put on their Santa hats, cozy coats...

Other Fabulous Events for the Season….

With the help of our Community Leader, Anastacia Schuster, Chantel Smith is organizing “The Fabulous Women” to ring the Salvation Army Bell during the holiday Season. Please call her if you are interested. It’s a great way to plug into the community. It’s also a great way for our kids to be involved in Community Service.

Fall Kindness with COTS

The Fabulous Women worked their magic this past month. We were able to look at homelessness from a new perspective. With the vision of Karen Nau , we were able to raise over $1100.00 to assist “The COTS Organization”. We were able to deliver a cart full of crock-pots along with custom-made recipe books. These crock-pots are being passed on to the transitional homes within the COTS Organization. Our goal as a group was to provide some love and comfort during the fall season. We were hoping to facilitate some life style changes by encouraging the clients to eat simply and nourish themselves. We were also able to hand over an envelope of money...

Peterson Farm and COTS

The Fall Season gives a wonderful opportunity to give! Thank you to all of the women who came out to the Peterson Farm to support our cause for COTS. The farm was an awesome setting for this event. The day was beautiful, the ladies were generous and we really got to understand the role of COTS in our community. The word ³homeless´ means so much more now. We were able to dispel myths about who is homeless and what their needs are. The group raised a total of$1,161.00. Included in that amount was a $300.00 donation from Target. Karen Nau was our hostess. Her goal was to raise money for the organization and buy...

Another Fabulous Cause: Relay For Life

For those of you who were able to attend the event at Club One to support Relay for Life, I would like to thank you for your presence and generosity. Club One was fantastic about opening up their facility to our group and Christina Groverman was a fantastic hostess for the evening. The gathering was inspiring for a number of reasons. There was a relay group present called, “Kathy’s Way.” They were able to speak about their inspiration for doing the relay. They talked about their good friend and sister who had just passed away in July. She lost her battle to cancer. Her name was Kathy Cerami. Her life was inspiring because she...

Supporting the Rwanda School Project

Thank you to all of the women who attended the gathering at Melissa Becker’s House. The cause was inspiring and left all of us feeling more grateful for what is so abundant in our lives. It’s the simple things that we often forget to appreciate like having a warm home, having clean running water, having schools and jobs to help us learn and grow, having shoes on our feet, mirrors on our wall and balls to kick around the yard with our kids. As we looked at the slide show put together by Melissa and listened to her first hand account of her experience in Rwanda, our hearts stretched a little bit larger. Most...
