Cabi clothing event thank you!

It was a pleasure seeing the ladies who attended our first
shop fall/winter Cabi clothing event! We enjoyed seeing each other as well as finding some cozy attire for our daily activities!
We also earned $75; the event was geared to simply have social distancing and fun! We are planning on a spring event if you missed our fall fun!
Once clothes arrive I will be in touch to have a meeting
date for pick up at the DWC!
Special thank you to all who attended and Pam Williams
for being my assistant. It truly was fun to have some
human interactions!
