Promise Tree

Promise Tree 2

What can you promise?

Which promise would you like?

Our Promise Tree, which sprouted from a suggestion by Connie Gilmore, has blossomed into a popular and successful feature of each of our General Meetings.  The idea is simple enough – each member makes a “Promise” to provide a service, an item, or anything else they’d like to share.  This Promise is written on a leaf, along with a price, and hung on the Promise Tree for any member to buy, with funds going to the Club treasury.

Although the Promise Tree concept is simple, the results have been unexpectedly positive in so many ways.  Through the events and activities offered on the Tree, we’ve all gotten to know each other so much better.  Rather than exchanging a few words at a meeting, so many of us have enjoyed a meal or attended an event where we were able to really connect with each other. The Promise Tree has also helped reveal the hidden talents of so many of our members. Need a handmade gift or a fresh loaf of bread? Check the Tree!  And of course, the money raised has been put to good use supporting our Club’s activities

The Promise Tree  is overseen by Susan Canada , Connie Gilmore  and Mel McGrail.  You can contribute your Leaf at any meeting or by contacting Susan at or 772-3876 or Mel at or 778-1930.

Promises are only for club members, unless an exception is given by the donor.
