February Activity: Sweet Treats with Some Sweet Girls
What a great time we had in February hanging out on a Saturday morning with the teen girls at Boysville! Everyone tried their hand at decorating cupcakes with pastry bags full of frosting, fondant cutouts, vanilla chips, sprinkles and even some chocolate and caramel faux rocks.
The creatively decorated cupcakes were as beautiful and unique as the girls themselves. We could see the pride in their faces as the volunteers circulated and oohed and aahed over their creations. Of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without a sampling of the sweet treats that tasted as good as they looked. We finished in prayer, giving thanks for the opportunity to spend time with new friends.
A big Thank You to Kelly, Jillian and Katherine Hoog for hosting and providing all of the supplies for another fun Chicktime activity! We are so grateful that you have volunteered your time and talent for several of our events.
We Still Need Volunteer Leaders
Chicktime relies completely on volunteers to share their time and talents each month. We need activity leaders to fill the remaining months this year. Please think about your hobbies and talents and consider sharing them with the teens at Boysville. They come from broken homes, abuse, neglect and other challenging circumstances. In leading or volunteering, you are showing them that someone cares enough to give up a Saturday morning to spend time with them. The activities bring them joy and can be real confidence-boosters when they master a new skill they have never tried before. And, sometimes, it’s just an opportunity to have fun and help them take their mind off their troubles.
Please pray about it and consider whether you are ready to lead. The dates are 3/19, 4/16, 5/21, 6/18, 7/16, 8/20, 9/17, 10/15, and 11/12. If you are ready to step up, or just have some questions, please contact one of our chapter leaders:

“So we are to use our different gifts in accordance with the grace that God has given us. If our gift is to speak God’s message, we should do it according to the faith that we have; if it is to serve, we should serve; if it is to teach, we should teach; if it is to encourage others, we should do so.”
– Romans 12:6-8
