Giving Thanks for Our Girlfriends!

Well, here it is: one of our favorite times of year! We love having a chance to stop and say thank you to all the wonderful people we’ve met through Team Towanda. Your friendship and support mean the world to us.

On behalf of women everywhere, we thank all our girlfriends who keep us sane and safe and make us laugh when we don’t think we can. The ones who pull us up and draw us out when we are tired and sad and don’t have the energy to pull ourselves up when we know we should. And especially, especially, for all the people in our lives who understand the value of just showing up, and who are there for us during hard times, when anywhere else at all in the world is where they would rather be.

To each of those friends, we send you our love this Thanksgiving, and we wish each of you the long half of the wishbone.

Don't You Just Love a Sale?

We were thinking about the upcoming holidays and came up with a great idea:
  1. Everybody knows that copies of the TTF cookbooks, The Charge of the Casserole Cavalry and Towanda Celebrates with her Bosom Buddies, make just the best presents EVER, and the proceeds pay for mammograms for uninsured women in our community AND….
  2. Everyone at Team Towanda just loves presents… so...
  3. We thought of a great present for all our girlfriends! We’re going to give you what every woman wants more than anything: the gift of time!
From now until the end of the year, you can purchase a set of our cookbooks, and we’ll pick up the shipping cost* for you! You’ll save time AND money! The books will be delivered right to your door, and you can use the time and your savings on shipping to treat yourself to a nice glass of wine with your bestie before the madness of the holidays hits.

The books are great gifts for almost anyone on your list, except for maybe your sullen nephew who only likes things that are black. You can get a boatload of your shopping done with a couple of quick clicks. Please start here!

Our fine print: * This offer is good on all cookbook sets ordered by December 31, 2012, and for delivery within the continental United States. Books will be shipped media mail rate and can take up to two weeks for delivery. Please allow sufficient time for holiday deliveries.

Favorite Word of the Day: tit·ter/ˈtitər/

    Give a short, half-suppressed laugh; giggle: "Judith’s pathetic attempts to fake technological proficiency caused the rest of the Team Towanda board to titter in amusement. Good natured soul that she is, she was happy to provide the entertainment for them."
    A short, half-suppressed laugh.
    verb. giggle - snigger - chuckle - tehee - snicker
    noun. giggle - snigger - snicker - tehee - cackle – chuckle

Ladies' Night Comedy Event??

I don’t care what anybody says, "titter" is a GREAT word. Everyone at Team Towanda and pretty much anybody who has ever attended a FUNdraiser loves to titter, laugh, chuckle, chortle, guffaw, laugh off, smile away, snicker, snigger, giggle, burst out (laughing), be convulsed, shriek, roar, howl, cachinnate, beam, grin, smile, smirk, roar, shout, crow, have a hemorrhage, die laughing, break up, haw-haw, split one's sides, bust up, roll in the aisles, tee-hee, snort, and be in stitches.

In case you missed the announcement, the next Team Towanda FUNdraiser isn’t until April 2014. That is such a long time to go without seeing all our girlfriends! It also puts a very big dent in the number of mammograms we’ll be able to fund next year if we don’t come up with another way to FUNdraise. So, we’re considering doing a Ladies’ Night Comedy Event next spring. This is new territory for us, but that’s never stopped us before.

We’re looking for someone who has some experience hosting such an event, or has some connection to the comedy world and could help us find someone to perform, or even someone who has advance access to local comedy club bookings so we might be able to hire someone who will be playing in the area.

Relax ~ you can contact us with leads, suggestions, or contacts and we promise we won’t interpret it as an offer for you to run the whole thing for us. We know that’s how a lot of organizations rope volunteers and we don’t like it either. We just have a great idea and no idea how to implement it, so we are reaching out to our buddies and hoping somebody will know somebody who knows somebody or something that can get us started.

We’d like to host this event in the Spring, so time is of the essence. If you have any ideas, please contact us by emailing or calling (860) 57-TATAS. It could be so much fun and we’re ready to run with it once we know where we’re going! Team Towanda is all about connecting the dots, and we are counting on our pals to share what they know.

We’ll keep you posted as soon as we have more information. Stay tuned!

And so we leave you with this last little laugh. Sometimes those smug, so-called smart phones aren’t nearly as smart as they want you to think they are...

Happy ThongGiving!
All Your Girlfriends at Team Towanda

P.S. Now please go schedule your
mammogram and then call your
best friend and remind
her to do the same!
