It has been a few days since I have blogged. It seems when I have a second to sit down at the computer then I lose my train of thought, as if I had many thoughts to begin with… 🙂
It was a busy weekend, with the Harvest time festival at church. I missed a lot of it due to some illnesses in the house, but Jeremiah went to almost all of it and thouroghly enjoyed the fellowship and was truley inspired by the speakers and muscians and their passion for our Lord. It is very hard to talk to people about your faith, and where you stand as a Christian person, but watching these men speak from their hearts helps to add the confidence in our hearts to disciple more.
We had our first board meeting yesterday for 7:10 Foundation. We were able to face time from Sebeka, MN all the way to Tennessee to include everyone. We were missing one member, because Pam was under the weather, but her husband and son filled in for her. It was our first meeting, and I have never had any experience with board meetings before, so it was a little disorganized, but promise to be better by our next meeting. Sherry has the minutes written up and I will post them to the google drive later today so that any of you will be able to see what was discussed.
I wanted to throw something out there, just feeling for some interest. I am thinking about trying to put together a vendor event, in the next month or so, where the vendors would volunteer to sell their products as part of a fundraiser. I am not sure how many companies participate in donating a percentage of their profits, but I have had a Scentsy and a Pampered Chef fundraiser. It is just in the thought stages right now, because I wanted to feel out how many people would be interested, so if you, or if you know of any consultants that may be interested please let me know. You could comment here on the blog, facebook message, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . If I have enough of an iterest then I could start looking into a venue. Some ideas would be Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Mary Kay, Tastefully Simple, Thirty One, Jamberry, Tupperware, Oragami Owl…. I am sure there are more, but this is what comes to mind.
Also, just a reminder that we willl have a 7:10 Foundation booth set up in Perham this weekend for the Harvest Festival. We will also have the kettle corn popper set up at the same time to raise money for the foundation.. We would love to see you all there. We will be across from Pizza Ranch in the parking lot on Saturday the 5th from 9-4.
Blessings to you all,
