Note for Friday Fun families – tomorrow – 30th Nov. we will be starting at 16:15 as that is the earliest our student volunteers can make it.
If you didn’t have enough cookies and cakes at the CEL open afternoon on Saturday there will be baking on Friday afternoon – story time at 15:30 and afterwards the chance to make biscuits with Claire. Please let us know if you plan to join us – firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that due to volunteer work commitments – this Friday afternoon CEL will be open from15:00 (rather than 14:30)
Thank you also to all those who supported us, we raised over 300 euros to be split between CEL and 1st Stuttgart Rainbows/Brownies/Guides … and welcome to those new members who signed up on Saturday! Come and see us again at CEL soon.
The girls from the 1st Stuttgart Rainbows, Brownies and Guides (with Emma’s help) will be baking cookies and cupcakes to sell at the CEL Show and Tell open afternoon (Saturday 10th November – 13:00-17:00) to raise funds to buy the necessary resources for the new Girlguiding programme unveiled this summer.
Pre-ordered cookies and cakes will be available for collection on the day. There will also be other cakes and delights made by the girls to eat at CEL with a cup of coffee or tea
during the open afternoon. (proceeds from this will go to CEL)
To avoid disappointment and to help us plan we would be grateful if you could indicate below how many cookies/cupcakes you would like to pre-order.
Please hand your donation and CakeOrderForm– in an envelope to the volunteer at the desk or e-mail to email@example.com
If you can’t make the open day (or are feeling generous) you can also donate ingredients for the baking – there is a box at CEL
Due to a shortage of volunteers CEL will be closed on Wednesday 26th September. We will be open as usual on the Friday 28th.
We will also be closed on Wednesday 3rd October as it is a public holiday.
Put Saturday 10th November – 13:00-17:00 in your diary and pop along to CEL – and bring along all those English speaking friends who have never quite got round to coming!
The girls from 1st Stuttgart Rainbows, Brownies and Guides will be offering tours of the library, readings, a quiz, a craft and of course coffee and cake … to encourage more people to come and see what CEL has to offer … and of course all our members are invited to join the fun.
We’ll have fliers at CEL for you to give to friends.
