Since the Fire Station we hold our meetings at will be collecting toys for Toys for Tots, and we will be sponsoring a family at Christmas, we are going to offer an incentive for attendees to donate to both causes. Anyone who brings an unwrapped toy to the November meetings will receive a raffle ticket (per toy).

At the November meeting we will raffle a $25 gift card. The more toys you bring the more chances you will have to win the gift card. We will select the appropriate toys to donate to our sponsored family and the remainder will be donated to the Fire Station for Toys for Tots. It is truly a win-win-win situation and a great way to get into the holiday mood. If you do not bring a toy but wish to participate in the raffle, tickets will be sold for $5 each.

At this meeting will also have election of officers for 2013.

If you plan to attend the November CE meeting, please RSVP to:

Dental Economics    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
We live in a world of opportunity. We are basically unlimited in the ways we can practice dentistry or live our lives. One phrase that is almost true in this country is that we are limited only by our imaginations. It would be 100 percent true except for the one thing that limits us all – time. Time is the one commodity that is constantly diminishing from the finite amount with which we begin our lives and careers. More
