Drillers Game

Last night we got a group together to watch the Drillers play on $2 Tuesday.

The kids had a blast.

We also had a pretty good size group show up.

*Our Group*

I think Eli was enjoying the game.  =)

We have a meeting tomorrow night at 6:30.  If you're wanting to get involved this is the meeting to be at.  We'll have committees for you to join if you're wanting to help with some of our fall events so please try to come.  It will be at the school in Merkel Auditorium, Rm#CHSD007. 
(Come in at the entrance by the security desk so they can let you in.) 


Playgroup {Pool Party}

Monday, was our first playgroup and we made it a family affair.  Thanks Jessica arranging this, it was a blast!!

A few of us stuck around to play on the playground before heading home.

Be sure to check the calendar for more upcoming events.

Meet N' Greet

Last Friday was our annual Meet N' Greet. 

We were ready for all the new members with packets, pens, name tags and membership forms.

We also sold some of our t-shirts.  If you're still wanting one message me on facebook or email me.

We love to mingle!!

The kids had a blast as well.

This was a first for a lot of people but I think it went great.  We had questions set up for each round and all these girls love to talk, so getting to know each other wasn't a problem.

A big thanks to the Alumni Office for the AWESOME prize bags and Ryan Miller for being the MC for the night!!

Apryl and Allison were the winning team.
Allison also won the most Buncos, which included the the bag and a P.F. Changs giftcard. She got the giftcard and we needed to have a face off for the final bag.

The "Bunc-Off" between Kirsten and Jessica for the 2nd most Buncos.

Congratulations Jessica! 

A few people had to head out early but we still had a pretty good size group at the end of the night.

So glad we had such a good turn out and I can wait for the rest of the year!!

-Janelle, SAA President
