The Wyandotte Pioneers met at the home of Robin Rose. Pledges were said and all reports we made. The leader went over the newsletter and told that the audit was turned in. Crystal and Heather's top record books are due to be turned in by December 14. We were also reminded of the next club meeting to be December 16 at KFC/Taco Bell in Bonner Springs.
December is the club's big community service month. Members are helping with Santa's Express Dec. 16. The club has also decided to help a family in need for the holidays.
Crystal demonstrated how to make a craft pillow. Members then had star cup cakes and milk.
The Wyandotte Pioneers helped the Children's Museum with its family fun day. Members helped make mice out of Hershey Kisses; took tickets to get a picture taken with Santa. They helped the children write a letter to Santa. Members also helped with a Santa Bean Bag game. They tossed Santa down a chimney. They also made reindeer food with oatmeal and glitter for the children to put in their yard on Christmas Eve. The club then went for pizza and some time of visiting.
