I always get a special feeling of reconnection when the school year starts, after not seeing many of my colleagues over the summer break. I experienced that same positive feeling when College Club members “reunited” at our first general meeting of the year. Along with that feeling of togetherness, SPFHS alumna Meg Reilly’s program “Adventures on the High Seas in a Yearlong 47,000 Mile Ocean Race” combined adventure, risk-taking and the mantra “One must give before one can get”. It was an inspiring way to remind us of our mission which focuses on giving to young women and in turn having an alumna from our High School to give back to us with such a fun and educational program to begin the year.

Our fundraising efforts are off to a great start! On September 19th, we had our Clothing Drive and gathered 689 bags of clothing, shoes and three bicycles, one stroller and several bags of small toys. Thank you to all who donated clothing, picked up clothes from the Scotch Plains Thrift Shop, stored bags, publicized the event, transported bags and/or worked that day. We greatly appreciate the donations from the Thrift Shop; do try to support them during the year with donations of gently used clothing and small household items. A big thank you goes to Cathy Hirschhorn for her organization and leadership in chairing this fundraiser for the sixth year. The total $1575.20 raised from the Clothing Drive adds to our Scholarship Fund.
Our Community Calendar is being sold in many stores in Fanwood and Scotch Plains and several people have commented on its updated cover. Just a reminder that each member is required to purchase or sell four calendars. If you have not met this obligation, please contact Jean Naugle to arrange a convenient time to pick up your calendars.
October has another fundraiser for College Club. October 29th is the Lord & Taylor Benefit Bash and our participation garners more funds for our scholarships. Carolyn Dittus and Ginger Rachko are co-chairing this fundraiser and you can either contact them or see them at the October general meeting to purchase tickets.
This year the annual College Night at SPFHS will be held on November 10th. Look for information at the General Meeting since many members are needed to ensure this evening runs smoothly. Please contact Co-Chairs Sue Spirko and Joanne Glover if you can assist that evening.
I am looking forward to our October program with Linda Kenyon presenting “A Life of My Own: Meeting Eleanor Roosevelt”. As always, friends, relatives and neighbors are welcome to join us. October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As my predecessors have done in the past, I would encourage every member to make an appointment for a mammography, if you have not already had your annual exam. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to put your health at the top of your list of priorities for this month!
Finally, look for an e-mail from me, as promised at our last General Meeting, outlining the various descriptions of the jobs that combine together to become our Spring Event. You may e-mail me with your choice of which committee(s) you will be joining, after which I will be calling each member to sign her up for a job, so that our Spring Event truly becomes a TEAM effort, proving once again we are stronger together! Looking forward to seeing you on October 19th!

That blog related to the different companies that related to the sale and trade and they have their policies. Those companies has different policies about the different accidental situations. Because they gave the warranties of that kind of accidental situations during the trade and transportation also in case of any mishap.
