Mother-Daughter Banquet up Next!

25 Apr

Hello, GEMS and GEMS Moms,

We have reached the end of the GEMS season and will finish with a Mother/Daughter/Grandmother Banquet. The banquet will be held on Wednesday, April 27, at 6:30 PM at Unity CRC. Please have your daughter invite her grandmothers, too. (Note: Dress for a banquet! GEMS t-shirts are not necessary!)

We ask each mom to bring a salad to serve 10-12 people. Thank you for supporting your daughter and GEMS throughout the year.

Come and celebrate what God has done through the GEMS program this year by joining us at the banquet.

Thank you,

The GEMS Board

There is a GEMS Camp open to girls who have completed 4th through 8th grade and are members of a GEMS club in our area. It is held at Camp Foster of the Okobojis outside Spirit Lake, Iowa. The dates are June 16-18. Register online: https://sites.google.com/site/gemsgirlscamp/

For every five girls that go to camp, we need to send one counselor/mom. If you are interested in serving as a camp counselor or have questions about GEMS Camp, there will be a short info time after the banquet with Miss Megan.

If you have any questions, be quick to contact one of your co-Club Coordinators, Megan or Lenae.
