With all of the great news we have had this year, here is one more exciting event going on soon!
We will soon be adopting a new logo which will be created by one of our members!
Because of licensing issues, we have decided to change our logo, and who better than our wonderful volunteers to select the new image to represent Operation Hugs and Kisses? Our members are busy designing and bringing their ideas to life for our July meeting where we will hold an official vote to select the new idea.
Stay tuned to see our newest addition as soon as it is availble!
Members: If you have not yet submitted your idea to Kathy or Joanne, the deadline is June 30th. Ideas must be submitted with name on the back (not the front, to avoid influencing other members' decisions) and will be displayed for voting at the July 7th meeting!
