First Summer STFVM Meeting!

Our first summer meeting for STVM was a total success! We discussed new topics and new ideas! We also discussed what we would do at the local Van Meter Farmer's Market. WE decided that we would sell tie-die cup cakes, lemonade, coffee, iced tea, and string bracelets. Along with the Farmer's Market ideas, we talked about further ideas about future fundraisers. We hope that these Farmer's Markets, along with any other fundraisers that we will do, lead to our goal by the end of the summer. Reaching our goal, we find it that the girl might be able to start school around the same time that we do.

Summer Events Of She's The First!

As the heat rolls in, She's The First Chapter of Van Meter does not slow down! We plan to make an appearance at the local Farmer's Market, in attempt to meet our goal for the end of the summer. What is our goal you may ask? With high hopes, we have a goal of $1,000.00, which is the amount it takes to send a girl to school. As the weeks pass, the girls in the Van Meter Chapter have continued to bring new ideas to the table on what fundraising events we can do. Knowing that the cupcakes were a success at our elementary school, we will try to hit it off again with that. Tomorrow we will be holding our first get-together of the summer. There, we will discuss future fundraisers and also shifts that people will take at the Farmer's Market. At the Farmer's Market, we plan on selling the tie-die cupcakes, along with cold drinks that people will be able to purchase while they are walking around. By the end of this week, there will be a post about how our meeting went tomorrow. STF Van Meter is determined!
