February Girl Scout Event
Our Girl Scout committee has been brainstorming this past month on an activity for our February Girl Scout event, and is currently talking with local troops to see how we can best be of service. We’ll post the date and time of this February event ASAP.
March Shamrock Event
CAKD has decided to do a shopping event at White House Black Market for our 2010 Shamrock event on March 7th. Appetizers will be served, and 10% of all total sales for the shopping party will go to Prevent Child Abuse America’s, a KD philanthropy, projects and services. We will have Pinwheels for Prevention for sale for $1 each, and feel free to invite your non-KD friends (especially if they love to shop at White House Black Market) to this community service event!
March Business Meeting / Elections
According to chapter bylaws, March is the month for CAKD’s annual business meeting and elections. The nominating committee will present their slate of officers in the March 1st newsletter, and then an election will take place at the Annual Business Meeting to be held Monday, March 15th. Please make plans to attend and make your voice known. An Installation ceremony will follow immediately after the business meeting. An Open Board Meeting (officer training / 2010-2011 planning meeting) will take place in April, with the Annual Mailing stuffing party in May.

o Are you involved in your local community (PTA, church, Junior League, community service, etc)?
o If involved in the community, do you hold any leadership positions? If so, what are they?
