The CFAWL Bylaws Committee needs YOU!  We are looking for a few members to review and revise (where necessary) the CFAWL Bylaws. It's our goal to form the committee, have an initial telephonic committee meeting regarding goals, and review the Bylaws by the middle of January.  Then, the Committee will meet in person by the end of January and present the Board with proposed amendments by its February meeting.  If you're interested in serving on this Committee, please email Committee Chair Barbara Leach atbarbara@bleachlaw.com by Friday, December 19, 2014.

Angel Tree Project

Each year in mid-December, CFAWL sponsors a holiday party and provides gifts for the children of Rock Lake Elementary who would otherwise go without.  Good news!  All children have been assigned!  But you can still help in a number of ways:  Financial contributions in any amount will be used to supplement the gifts for the children and to purchase party supplies and food for the children at the holiday party. Individual toy and clothing donations are also welcomed to supplement the gifts for the children.  The holiday party will be held around 1:00 pm on Friday, December 19, 2014.

To arrange to make a financial or gift donation or to sign up to attend the party, please email cfarley84@gmail.com
