> Yep, our members were asked to bring their favorite candy bar. During
> introductions, they told which candy bar they had brought and why. At
> the end of the meeting, we drew a number and the person holding that
> number took the entire of bag of candy home with them... or at least
> that was the idea. Mary Helen Schrieber was the winner and she turned
> around and sold each candy bar for a $1 and raised $10 for the
> chapter. Go Mary Helen.
