We decorated 150 bags!

About our project: I called and spoke to the base commisary manager Mr. Jones, I explained to him what we wanted to to, what it was for, and asked how many bags we could borrow. He was very willing to help us out. On Wednesday the 7th I stopped in and picked up the bags from the head bagger Claudia. Then on Monday I explained to the kids who were intrested, what we were doing. They were excited and got right to work. We continued this all week. Mrs. Stvie & Mrs. Tabitha who runs the teen room got their teens to help out too. We still had a few more so I handed them to Mrs. Tammy the School-Aged Program Director, so the young kids could get involved. Everyone worked together, I even had kids that rarely get involed helping out. After all the bags were completed I went to the commissary on Friday the 16th to return them. I also was able to hang a few posters up so customers knew what the decorated bags were for. I can't wait to do this again, the kids really enjoyed seeing their art work on the bags.

Look at our pictures!
