The Board of Directors met this week and we were fortunate enough to have the leader of the Jedi Scouts in Canada in town to join us. A lot of great ideas were shared. We are going to be mailing a Chewbacca action figure around North America to the different chapters to have the kids take pictures with ala Flat Stanley. We are also looking at setting up a pen pal/email exchange between members from different places. If your child is interested in having an email exchange with another Jedi Scout far, far away let me know and we will pair them up with someone similar in age.
Our first major fundraiser is going to be a cookbook. Please email your recipes to us or bring a copy to the meeting- Star Wars themed or otherwise. We will be collecting recipes through June 15. We are looking at both a hard print as well as an ebook version. If you have any questions, please contact Sandy at firstname.lastname@example.org as she is heading up this effort at the moment. Your participation would be greatly appreciated!
We are also looking for a few committee chairs to join us. If you are interested in heading up the Community Service or Fundraising Chairperson positions, please let me know and we can discuss more details.
Just a reminder that 2nd quarter dues is due. If you need a paypal invoice please let me know. Cash or check is accepted at the meetings.
Look forward to seeing you all Saturday. I have several very cool science experiments planned that the kids are going to love!
May the Force be with you!
