GWA PIN AND TSHIRT PROJECT

This year's GWA pin sells for $5.00. It represents two important traits that every dancer must have to be successful. The rhythm of the heart, together with music, creates a beautiful background for the dancer.

The t-shirts may be purchased for $10 (S - XL) and $12 (XXL - 3XL), and they are available in three colors: pink, gray and heather purple. We hope to see everyone wearing these while travelling to our Official Visits and to Assembly and Area meetings and activities. Both will be available at each Official Visit.

   
  OUR TENNESSEE MASCOT - ANGELINA

This year's mascot is a flop-eared bunny, named Angelina. She loves to travel and she looks forward to receiving some accessories at the Official Visits. Please bring Angelina with you as you travel around the state. The mascot will be available at each of our Official Visits for $10.

   
  "KEEPING OUR SPARKLE FOR SHRINERS HOSPITAL"

We hope that each Assembly will raise money for the Shriners Hospital for Children in Lexington, Kentucky. They treat children with a host of orthopedic conditions while providing families expert medical care in a family-centered environment.

All donations are due to Mom Fortenberry and a report to Mrs. Susan Owenby by May 20.

   
  "PRESERVING OUR RAINBOW STAGES"
SUPPORTING OUR SPONSORS

We would not be here without our fraternal sponsors, so each Assembly is asked to do something positive for their lodge. Assemblies can clean the lodge, prepare a meal, serve at their Official Visit or make cards for the shut-ins. Be creative!

A report of each Assembly's participation is due to Mrs. Lori Phillips-Jones by May 20.

   
  "THE DANCE OF LIFE"

Knox Area Foster Care and Adoption Ministries (KAFCAM) provides assistance to adults wishing to become foster parents or are considering adoption. We will collect pocket change at the end of each Official Visit to support these adoption families through their leadership, training and supporting events.

A report should be sent to Mrs. Suzanne Bracey by May 20.

"SHARING OUR HEARTS WITH OTHERS"

Everyday there are children involved in horrific events such as car wrecks, fires or physical abuse. Most of our local Police and Fire Departments collect stuffed animals and blankets to give to these children. Let's help them add to their collection!

A report should be sent to Mrs. Marcella Centola by May 20.
