The Holiday Season! Time for turkeys, parties, presents and shopping till you drop. It's also time to spend quality time with family and friends. We would love to have you come spend time with your DG sisters at the upcoming Holiday Brunch. Come in for a coffee and crepe and enjoy some sisterhood. There are many in need this holiday season, including those still recovering from the flood, so we are asking you to DO GOOD and bring a donation to the brunch; think toys, gloves, hats, books) and we will make sure its gets to the right hands for distribution. I am so thankful for all my fellow sisters and the great things we do together locally and nationally. Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year.

ITB,
