From Dianna Stimson:
IMPORTANT CORRECTION !! The information regarding the St. Paul Lutheran Memorial Chili & BBQ Cook Off held at Crawford,TX on March 19th the Trails is incorrect. It states that the First place winner of the Chili Cook Off will receive a Wendell Rankin hand painted stove..... The FIRST PLACE WINNER OF THE KID'S CHILI COOK OFF will receive the stove!!! Sorry for any confusion.

This is the February reminder, and this is the final notice:
As promised after the 2010 Texas Ladies State CCO, this is the reminder to the ladies expressing an interest in joining the group of ladies contributing to the CASI National Scholarship Program in lieu of the traditional Texas Ladies State “good luck” giveaway tokens. This is the second notice and I believe all email addresses are correct.
If it is still your intentions, please remember you are responsible for sending your contribution to the CASI National Scholarship Program Administrator prior to a March 1, 2011 deadline. Remember also, the amount of your contribution will remain anonymous. A Contribution Form is provided as an attachment. You can print, fill out and mail the form to the Scholarship Program Administrator. (The attachment is a Microsoft Word document. Some of you may have to open, do a Print Preview to see the document as a one-page document, and then print.) The Scholarship Program Administrator will verify the receipt, but will not disclose the amount of all contributions. The list of names will appear on a flyer which will be handed out at TLS and for signage. We hope to have it ready to set up at the TLS registration area.
Please feel welcome to extend an invitation to any other ladies interested in joining the group. Also, please forward their names along with any questions that may arise to the group contacts. The contacts at this time are:
