Girls Clubs- Jamboree
Our girls clubs were able to attend the 2010 Jamboree at the Legacy Retreat Facility. There were girls from all over the state. Our girls had a wonderful time and enjoyed many, many fun things. The Jamboree consists of a day just for girls ages 3-18. It has swimming in the county's largest pool and a large lake with a gigantic trampoline for the girls to jump and slide off, lovingly called "the blob." lol They have canoes to float in and paddle boats to ride in. A large foam play area and a humongous shark slide and other inflatables to jump around in. Each age category can enter in a baking competition, a decorate a T-Shirt contest, and cheer or human video reenactments. The older girls even get to enjoy some spa time. The canteen is open for snack foods and a special mini-mall is open with everything a girl wants, from jewelry, hair accessories, purses, bags, make-up, hats and more...what girl doesn't like shopping? The day is packed with lots of fun. Our girls from PSCOG had matching shirts made by the director Kelly Vaughn. Through out the year, they raise funds to help them go to Jamboree, and helping others. They help the children's home in Sevierville, TN. They save Campbell Soup labels and send to the home. It has helped the Orphanage buy many things over the years, like clothes, school supplies even a van or two over the years. Wow! That's making a difference. They have other projects that help others in foreign lands too. The girls had the best time and looked "as cute as a button" in their little matching outfits. Thanks for all your donations to help keep girls clubs going at the Powder Springs Church of God. We appreciate it. The theme this year was "Over the Rainbow." It went with the classic movie, "The Wizard of Oz."
* You too can help the Children's Home in Sevierville without it costing you a thing, but a little time and some postage. Cut and save your Campbell Soup labels and send them to: Labels of Love, COG Children's Home, P.O. Box 4391, Sevierville, TN. 37864-4391
