Time to start putting money aside for NYS Court Guardians fundraising events.  When you visit the dollar store – pick up a tube of toothpaste, pack of toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, body wash or an item you know can be of good use to a person in need.  That way you can meet a need with your supply.  Small things from big hearts create an atmosphere that shows others you care.
 
Grand Council of Guardians Women’s History Month Program 2018 will be here sooner than you think.  If you stash away $10.00 per pay period now, it can get you off to a good start to be able to purchase a ticket for you, your family members and a friend to sit with our organization.
