As another year comes to a close, we're going to pause and turn inward to focus on ourselves and take time to help those less fortunate than us.
We'll be gathering at Brio Tuscan Grille for a wonderful lunch, great fellowship, and chance to talk one on one with some of the presenters from our monthly meetings throughout the year. Many of them will be in attendance.
This event will be at no cost to you. Elliot Consulting is covering the entire cost of our meeting. Please be sure to take a minute to thank Steve Elliot for his generosity and his continued support of GTBACP and its membership.
Important Note: You will need to register for this event and also select the entree you would like for your lunch. Please use the "Register Now" button below. Be sure to register no later than Friday, November 6, 2015.
The November meeting is also the time we elect our officers and directors for the coming term. Members in good standing should have already received an email outlining the candidates, which includes a link to the online ballot. If you are a member and you haven't had the opportunity to vote online, please do so prior the meeting. If not, there will be paper ballots available at the meeting.
Annual Charity Drive
We've chosen a worthy charity that can help those that need it the most; the children of our community. This year, we've chosen Toys for Tots. The United States Marine Corps Reserve sponsors this annual toy drive and GTBACP is honored to participate.
Gunnery Sargeant David Barrett, a 23 year Marine Corps veteran and an Iraq combat veteran, will be in attendance to accept our donations. Please be sure to thank GySgt Barrett for his service to our country.
Toys for Tots has offered guidelines on donations:
Age groups with the most need:
- Newborn to 2 years
- 9 to 12 years old
- AVOID toys for 3 - 5 year old as these are already in great abundance within the charity.
- Young adult book series
- Board games
- Play sets
- Barbie accessories and clothes
- PuzzlesPlease avoid donating gift cards. They will be accepted but cash or check will work far better for the charity because they can target much need items and distribution companies can give them the largest discounts on bulk purchases.
