HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO all of YOU - THE BAND OF SISTERS!!

We are having a Birthday Party for our 5th birthday. Plan to join the band on Wednesday, June 19 from 12:30p - 2:30p at Linda Bedo’s home. There will be lemonade and tea and cupcakes - and even some magic!

You won’t want to miss a minute of the party because at 1p, we will be mesmerized by magic. Following the show, we will have the opportunity to actually learn some magic tricks so we can wow and delight our children and grandchildren! Come share in the magic of celebrating together.

We will be sending out invitations soon - you can RSVP at that time. For now, save the date!

NOTE IN THE POCKET

Note in the Pocket provides clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County. This organization believes it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school. Band of Sisters invites folks to meet up with Linda Bedo, Maureen Leahy throughout the year to work with Note in the Pocket in processing incoming donations and outgoing orders.
