"I am pleased to share with you our grant report for Girls on the Run – Idaho for 2009. Since receiving your generous grant for the amount of $2,500 we have had two successful 10-week seasons and have served 285 girls in the communities of Boise, Meridian, Nampa, Middleton, Star, Kuna and Caldwell.
Our Spring 2009 season was held from March through May. Our program was offered at thirteen sites across the Treasure Valley in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Star with 139 girls participating and 32 coaches volunteering their time. Our 2009 Fall season was held from September through November. We had sites in twelve locations across the Treasure Valley with 146 girls registered and 33 coaches. We were able add new sites in Kuna and Caldwell during the fall, along with offering our existing sites in Boise, Meridian, Eagle, Star, Middleton and Nampa. While we saw a bit of a decline in our annual numbers from the previous year, we were happy with the numbers we served, especially in this time of financial instability for so many families.
Also we have a member of our group who is looking for books to add to her non-profit library assisting those in need. She is looking particularly for self-help, inspirational books however any book donated is a good book so if you have one or two you have been meaning to pass on here is your chance! Bring your books to the brunch event!
Hope to see you soon!

Undoubtedly, with the start of this new decade, we all have made resolutions...and because you are a member of the Little Black Dress Club, I would be surprised if you haven't thought briefly about becoming more involved in your community.
We are being given a wonderful opportunity to do just that, with a special invitation to take a tour of the the Women's and Children's Alliance, entitled "If These Walls Could Talk." This one-hour tour consists of descriptions of the services offered through the WCA, local statistics of domestic abuse and sexual assault, and finally, how we can help women and children through volunteering with this organization. If there is interest after the tour we can walk downtown to share conversation and perhaps a drink.Tuesday, January 26, 5:30 p.m.
