International Cooking-Fried Rice

Thanks Mr. Kaneshiro for the great cooking demo of fried rice. We learnt how to cut up the veggies, stir fry the meat just right, and the best way to prepare the rice. Delicious!

Pottery class at Jimmy Potters Studio

We had a great time making bowls at our Jimmy Potters Pottery Class!

First we centered our clay, then we formed the clay into a circle. We learned how to spin the wheel, to use our thumbs to shape the clay, and much more.

Thanks to everyone at Jimmy Potters for creating such a fun experience for us! IMG_6266 IMG_6274 IMG_6259Redone pots


Rescheduled March and April meetings

postponedDon’t forget that the meetings for March and April have been pushed back one week to the 3rd Tuesday. See you there!


December 2016 Service Project

We voted to donate gifts and cards to teens at the Kathrine K. Hanley Family Shelter to add some cheer to the lives of homeless teens over the holidays. With every thing that we have in our lives, it is hard to imagine not having a home to go to at any time, and especially in the winter. We made gifts of new personal items like earbuds, clothing, perfumes, colognes, cosmetics, candy, and so on. The things we thought we would miss if we had no home for the holidays then we gathered to wrap them and to make cheerful cards to go with them.

As the new school year begins, the club must select new officers to lead us in our meetings and other events.  We chose a president, a vice president, a secretary, and a treasurer. This year, we have an awesome new group of club officers. Good luck to all!


City of Fairfax Fall Festival Fundraiser

City of Fairfax Fall FEstivalWhat a rainy day! But we persevered, offering goodies that we made to support the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. We did not sell the desserts for a fixed price but offered them to the people who came by in return for a donation. At the end of the day we had some desserts left over and we gave them away. The people who took the free food still gave very generously to our cause.
