VP Trish: Nest Reports

Quite often, I am chatting with Nest Officers and hear that they do not have a current roster. This is a bit frustrating as every quarter, a Nest roster is uploaded to each Nest page. This takes a considerable amount of time for this information to be posted to each Nests’ page. There is no problem with our doing so, but if it isn’t used!?

I remind the Officer to contact Courtney (even give them her email address) to set up their Nest page. This page (on our site) has the monthly reports, rosters (not all Nests will have a report every month, it is dependent on Nest activity), and other information the Nest may need.

Courtney kindly created a username and password for each Nest for me. Next week, each Nest President and Financial Secretary will receive a letter (in the mail) from me with your Nest username and password.

Previously, there was a monthly Nest mailing with all of this information. Rosters were mailed out twice a year. This mailing has not been done in years!

Clothespin Wreath Supplies

Most of these items are available at the Dollar Store or Walmart.

  • 36 – 40 clothespins

  • Craft paint and paint brushes – You can make the wreath all one color or two colors, and coordinate with your ribbon choice.

  • Ribbon – 1 piece 14 inches long, one piece 12 inches long (wired ribbon works best but non-wired will work too)

  • Cardboard circle – 6 ½ inches in diameter on the outside of the circle and 6 inches on the inside. I use foamboard, but even a cardboard amazon-type box will work.

  • Wire – 10 – 12 inches long or you can use several twist ties. This will be used to hang your wreath.

  • Paper or plastic tablecloth to cover your workspace

  • Plastic gloves so you do not get paint all over your hands.

  • Paper plates to use as a palette for your paint
