SaddleBrooke Community Outreach

September meeting to feature Golden Goose Fashion Show

Nancy McCluskey-Moore

Each year the SaddleBrooke Community Outreach (SBCO) fall kick-off general meeting features the popular “Golden Goose Fashion Show.” This year’s meeting will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 23, in the MountainView ballroom. At the meeting, SBCO will provide information about its programs that provide food, clothing, and educational opportunities for local children and how you can assist by volunteering your time and talents.

At this meeting, you will also see “cheap chic” clothing culled from the many donations received by the Golden Goose thrift store. Throughout the year, Betsy Lowry searches for runway-worthy clothing and coordinating accessories, from casual to formal wear. She also recruits Goose volunteers who are willing to serve as runway models.

Make room in your garage or home office by packing up outdated paper files and bringing them to the shredding and recycling event on Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9:00 a.m. to noon (or until the truck is full). The event, hosted by Long Realty-Golder Ranch, SaddleBrooke Community Outreach, and the Beacon Foundation, will be held on the SaddleBrooke One bocce ball courts.
