Garden Harvest Swap
August 1st, from 10 to 11:30 am


The WCA Garden Swap is for any gardener, baker, and canner, DIY enthusiast, new or experienced, who has something to swap and share. Too many tomatoes, zucchini or eggplant? Bring your harvest abundance or homemade goods and swap it for something else. The Garden Swap is where everything is home grown or homemade and you can trade an item you made for an item that someone else made - items are swapped 1-for-1.

Dining For Women
August 13th, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm


This month's featured program is Community Cloud Forest Conservation in Guatemala which alleviates poverty and protects forests through education, reforestation, community development, leadership scholarships, and ecological improvements to agriculture. CCFC believes that holistic human / community development through education and capacity building is the key to peace building in Guatemala's central highlands. Community based conservation gives peasant farmers ownership and incentive for good land stewardship.
Enjoy a pot luck supper and hear more about this project and contribute to the cause what you could have spent eating out.  www.cloudforestconservation.org

Book Group Starts
Monday, August 24th at 6:30pm


Our first selection is: "My Education" by Susan Choi. The book is available in paperback and can be purchased at The Book House - there is a special section for registered book groups - mention you're in our book group at checkout for a discount.
 
Discussion of the book will begin promptly at 7:00 pm. We will start by meeting every other month, moving to monthly if the response will support it. This group is still forming - please join us in August and get in on the ground floor.  For more information, please contact linda.m.wag@gmail.com


Ongoing Collections

The Community Service Committee has organized two collection drives.

Plastic Jar Lids: Please bring clean, plastic jar lids ranging from 3 to 6 inches diameter from common household items such as peanut butter, mayonnaise, Nutella, etc.  The lids will be used to modify the switches on battery-operated toys for use by children with disabilities. The Northeastern Woodworkers Association makes the bases and the GE Toy Modification Volunteers group does the wiring. Donations are required on an ongoing basis and may left in the basket in the clubhouse foyer at any time.

Swim Suits for Kids: Swim suits for boys and girls ages 4-14 (girls suits are needed most) to be donated to Grassroot Givers who will then distribute them to several local organizations - the Arbor Hill Community pool program, a children's camp and to local homeless shelters housing children. New and gently used items are needed through August.

For more information on these projects contact the chair of Community Service Committee Joann Crupi at j.crup@att.net
