The Easter Egg Hunt was a tremendous success! The Junior Belles did a great job and the all of the kids had a great time!! Not only was it a great event for the community, but the Junior Belles also learned a lot about responsibility, leadership, and following through with plans. All proceeds from the event went to a scholarship fund that will be awarded to an exemplary Senior Belle!
Next up on the calendar is the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society’s First Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Junior Belles. The Junior Belles were split up into groups to plan the event. Such groups included; advertising, sponsorships, event planning, and tickets. The girls in the advertising group worked very hard creating posters and advertisements and distributing them around town. The girls in the sponsorship group were able to gather over $800 worth of sponsorships for the event! Girls in the event planning group got everything needed for the event and were there early to set up and work the event. In the ticket group, girls designed and printed tickets and made sure each Belle sold the 5 tickets they were given. The Junior Belles have worked so hard and we can’t wait to see how the Easter Egg Hunt turns out!!
This month the Belles worked at the Tuscaloosa County Preservation Society’s first Earth Day Garden Show. The event was hosted at the Battle-Friedmann Home and the Belles spent the day setting up, gardening, greeting guests, helping with the auction, and cleaning up after. The Preservation Society’s first Earth Day Garden Show was a great success and we are so glad we got to be a part of it!

This past weekend the Belles and their parents were invited to our annual Belle’s Christmas Party. As taught in etiquette lessons during monthly meetings, the Belles each brought an ornament for the hostesses Christmas tree as a hostesses gift, being that it was the first time they had been invited to the hostesses home. While at the party, the Belles picked a book from a list that they wanted to donate to the Alberta Elementary and University Place libraries. These were two of the schools destroyed in the April 27th tornado. The Belles also picked two people in local nursing homes to write personal notes to in Christmas cards. Along with giving back to the community, the Belles and their parents had a wonderful time mingling and enjoying the refreshments!
