Ladies Pink Button

Hello, Ladies!
I hope you’ve been enjoying the update to the Pink Button. Let’s get ready to “Let Your Light Shine” for the Christmas season and our upcoming December planning meeting.
If you missed it, the following link will show highlights of our 2018 Florida State Convention, complete with our Mardi Gras-clad ladies at the luncheon. https://www.photoknight.net/KofC/2018/2018-State-Convention.
Our next meeting, the Mid-Year Meeting, will be held December 7-8, Friday and Saturday, at The Florida Hotel & Conference Center.
As always, we will have our delicious cookie exchange on Friday evening (please bring multiple copies of your recipe, along with approx six dozen cookies).
Saturday morning we will have our Appreciation Breakfast and, hopefully, another visit from a representative from Canine Companions for Independence, based in Orlando. For those who are craft-minded (or to find your inner artistic side), Jean Cipriano will have a demonstration/class on her painting techniques. If available, we’re also hoping a Mary Kay representative may provide a set-up for any ladies interested in having a “makeover.” As a fun addition, Melodee is providing recipes, helpful household hints and beauty tips. This one is really relevant for us here in Florida who have intermittent visits by those tiny ants.
1 c water, 1 t Borax, 1 t sugar
Mix together well. Saturate several cotton balls and place in areas you think the ants are
coming from or where they seem to be congregating. Leave for several days (out of the reach
of children and pets!) At first you will see a proliferation of ants, then a day or two later, they
should be gone. This is poisoned food the ants take back to the nest and it kills them all.
