Before, during and after our January 17th event, we've logged about 250 service hours provided by 22 club members, 4 friends of club members, and 26 women from the church group. It's interesting that many new club members mention Operation Smile as the first BWC event they ever attended.
Here's a glimpse of what it takes to pull off an event like this.

We owe a HUGE thanks to Liz Allman, who watched all the wee ones while their moms sewed. She was completely exhausted at the end of the four hours. Thank you Liz!
It's hard to believe that all that effort was squished into two medium sized boxes, which were sent off to the Operation Smile headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia. According to their donation inventory forms, here's the value of our donation:
- 54 hospital gowns valued at $270.00
- 77 smile dolls valued at $385.00
- 46 smile bags valued at $92.00
We also sent a check for $600.00 to go towards cleft palate surgeries. That should cover 2.5 surgeries. Go here if you'd like to make a personal donation.
NICE WORK LADIES!
