Okay!  I know it is early, BUT, it is not too early to start collecting your colorful cans for Mini Challenge #3 which you will bring to CONFERENCE 2017 (and not before!) We have not yet selected a facility to receive the cans, so that’s TBA.  Having this information early will provide an opportunity to get the most for your $. If you catch a sale on any of the items in your district’s category, you can purchase and stretch your bucks and maybe get more!  Most everything you buy now should still have a good sell-by date for August. And, you will have plenty of time to relate this information to your members and keep reminding them. It proved to be impossible to come up with items for each color of the rainbow, and it didn’t seem fair to give one district an easy color like green and another to get one like purple, so the colors were combined and 2 districts chosen for each color category.  Remember, your colorful cans may be EITHER the color of the food inside like the suggested foods OR the color of the can on the outside. Yes, I know black is not a color of the rainbow but it is a food color. HAPPY SHOPPING!!!
