Fundraising - 2017 Spring Card and Game Party.
After a damp and dreary spring, the sun finally broke through for a beautiful afternoon for the Spring Card & Game Day at Thornberry. Cheerful smiles greeted the 250 attendee, who wandered through the Yum-Yum Shoppe on their way into the main party. Party-goers experienced an array of wonderful raffle and silent auction items. Bridge, mah-jongg, dominoes, hand-and-foot, horse collar and Sequence entertained the 250 participants for the afternoon. Another successful fundraising venture!

Fellowship - Mayflower Greenhouse provided a festive atmosphere for several BCCWC members and their guests to get ready for fall in Wisconsin on
Thursday, Sept. 23, 2016. People started arriving around 5:45 for a class that started at 6:00, and by 7:30 beautiful planters were created to decorate their homes. Socializing afterward
for 1/2 hour gave everyone a chance to admire each other's handiwork. Fun time!

Hot and muggy weather didn't deter 80 BCCWC members and guests from golfing in the annual outing at Mid Vallee on June 12. During the "morning meet and greet", members registered and looked over the raffle and silent auction items. They also bought tickets for mulligans to use on the course, and pieces of 2' string to improve their lie on the green. Using a scramble format, they teed off at 9, and were back in the clubhouse by noon. There they joined those who had played bridge or other games in the morning for a beautiful taco bar luncheon.
Low scorers for the day were Terry Jeffers, Sue Erdmann, Joanne Reimer and Sandy Badtke. Peoria winners were Marge Zdziarski, Sue Dahnert, Melissa Rusk and Jean Allgeyer. Mark your calendars now for next year's outing, scheduled at MidVallee on June 11, 2018. Watch online in the spring for the registration form.
Volunteering: Our very own JoAnn DeVoe was recently recognized for her volunteer work at the House of Hope. JoAnn eagerly shows up each Tuesday not knowing whether it will be a day of office work, child care, data entry, baking with a child/children, etc. BCCWC has been supporting House of Hope through volunteers, grants and drives since 2010.
Winners of the 2015 Spring Game Day silent auction celebrated as "Queens For A Day." Their hosts greeted them on a red carpet, with professional music performed outdoors, including a polka dance in the driveway. Tiara crowns were donned and the fun began. Music & skits, limousine ride to various sites, private room dinner at the Radisson and, of course, Bridge. A grand event to remember ...and friendships to cherish.

Fellowship: December 2015 Holiday Luncheon at Oneida Country Club. Despite unseasonably warm and rainy weather, Oneida Golf and Country Club again provided a
festive venue. Mrs. Santa greeted the 160 party-goers as they entered, and particularly enchanted the children of the Packer wives who were there as representatives of the "Give a Kid a Book"
campaign that BCCWC sponsored this year. Following lunch, party-goers were entertained by Tom Tunes, a trio singing a variety of Christmas songs.
