New Business:

*After mulching and weeding tonight, our City Park garden looks great! we're on the lookout for plant donations from anyone who's thinning out their gardens!

*Relay for Life Luminaria forms are available now to honor friends who have had cancer. All team members have forms available. The minimum suggested donation for a candle to be lighted is $5. The Lighting Ceremony is scheduled to begin at 9:30 on 5/17, 5/19 in the event of bad weather.

*Candy bar sales are going great! If you haven't tried them yet, get your chocolate/almond, peanut butter meltaway, caramel, or crispy crunch bar today!

*Candle sales have begun. for $6 we are selling heart-shaped candles ~2" tall and 4" diameter, in scents of Cinnamon, Love Spell, Hot Apple Pie, Sugar Cookie, and Blueberry. Make arrangements with Steve to pick up candy bars or candles (, but he's off on vacation next week), or see a local motives member to buy some for yourself! they make great gifts!

*profits from sales of candy bars or candles will go toward your personal total of money raised for Relay for Life. For example: If Janet sells 20 candy bars for $1 each, she will have raised $20. After covering local motive's costs, $10 of that is profit, so Janet has raised $10 for relay for life. Candy bar profits are $0.50, Candle profits are $2.

*Cycle for CF, scheduled to be held May 4, has been cancelled.
