A Plethora of Easy Fundraisers

Dear Families,

We are just moving along with fall and it’s hard to believe the holidays will be here soon. Starting off the holiday season, a big thanks goes out to Alice Webb for all her work on the Wreath and Poinsettia Fundraiser from Johnson Brothers. The totals sales were $4,209.00 with a profit to Charlemagne for $1,593.25. Thank you everyone who participated in this fundraiser.

The Holiday Market is coming up on Dec. 5 and, if you are looking for gift wrap, see information below on our online fundraiser for Innisbrook. Also below is fundraiser information for Tactics and Unique Eugene Gift Certificates that could make some nice holiday gifts.

We are kicking off our Turkey Donation Drive this week. If you are able to help out, please see information below.

The Southeast Neighbors are holding a fall meeting on Nov. 11, where they will be discussing on preparing for winter, but let’s hope we don’t have one like last year. All Charlemagne families are invited to attend. Please see below for more information.

Lastly if you are looking for some entertainment, Rose Children’s Theatre is performing Peter Pan Jr. Some of our own Charlemagne kids are performing. Click here for the flyer.

Hope everyone has a great week!
