The Rubies Leader Assistants have worked so hard since August to come up with items for their fundraiser. These girls are working on earning money to pay their way to a leadership training retreat in February in Florida. Unfortunately because we were so busy working there are not enough pictures to show just how many hands helped in making this craft fair successful. Special thanks to all those not shown who spent many late nights working to make this day a success! We appreciate you and couldn't have done it without you!!!
The Rubies Girls learned how to make pear & raspberry preserves, pear & apple crisp, and canned cinnamon pear sticks. This weekend was definitely filled with lots of cooking and kitchen preparation. Great job girls!

This camp the girls learned all about the different rooms in the house, how to properly clean, hand embroidery skills for dish towels, and lots of cooking! What a great group of Rubies Girls!
