WINTER Season Program Highlights:
December 2009 - We started as a group of dynamic young ladies who desired to bring cheer and share love with our elders through Christmas Caroling. Our first Christmas Carol Adventure began at the Westbury Heath and Rehabilitation Center.
December 2010 - Young girls and guys were invited and trained alongside active church youth members to spread Christmas Cheer again through Christmas Caroling at the Westbury Health and Rehabilitation Center. Then, we were asked to visit and sing to the elders at Griffin Assisted Living Center.
SPRING Season Program Highlights:
April 2011 - Our first Annual Spring Tea party was held at TeaFuse in Atlanta to give our girls and guys the opportunity to develop their social, etiquette and presentation skills. The youth made presentations on topics they were passionate about and their were educational demonstrations on the history of tea and traditions long time ago.
SUMMER/FALL Season Program Highlights:
September-October 2011 - We offered sewing training sessions for our members and then a community sewing session was held at the Peachtree City Library to teach this craft to the community at large free of cost. During these sessions documentaries were shown addressing the state of orphans in today’s society and discussions were held to see how we can fulfill our civic duty to give back an item sewn with love.
November 2011 - Our members and community sewing participants were invited to attend our Children’s Home tour held at the Georgia Baptist Children's Home-Palmetto Campus. Gift baskets were presented filled with items requested on their needs list and items sewn during our sewing sessions. After the tour, attendees enjoyed a Christmas Carol Concert together at Spelman College.
WINTER Program Highlight:
December 2011 - A large group of talented girls came together, first at a sleepover where they rehearsed and bonded together before visiting two new assisted living centers. They shared Christmas cheer and cookies home-baked with lots of love and care. This year's Christmas Caroling experience took place at the Fellowship Senior Services and the Baptist Manor assisted living Center on the Palmetto Campus of the Children's Home.
Our 2nd Annual Tea Gathering was a great success. This year's "Guys & Gals Classic Tea Ball" was held at Southern Oaks in Fayetteville, GA. Our members and community enjoyed each other's company in a formal picturesque setting, our girls and guys learned how to waltz and presentations were given by dynamic speakers on how to make a difference in their home communities and ministries.
