Behind the Scenes – Basket Day

As it so happens this time each year, BVL members are all focused on pulling off yet another successful Wonderful Witchy Women With A Cause event. Everyone is on one committee or another helping to get things done. There are tasks, though, that require a lot more hands than are already part of that specific committee. So, dates are scheduled in the calendar for everyone in BVL to know about, come join in, and help. One of these dates is “Basket Day.”

“Basket Day” is when we create all of those fabulous display items for the silent auction like you see below:

A lot of thought has already gone into the contents of the packages. And quite a bit of planning has gone into the types of containers and sizes needed, the filler, the organization, the bows, and more, much more.

On Basket Day, we gather at a member’s home where production lines have been organized and start packaging everything. Does it sound tedious? Sure, this kind of thing can be, but <smile> this group knows how to make things fun. It’s kind of like a mini party before the big event. It’s one of the things that’s special about this group – the camaraderie, the desire to help out wherever it’s needed, the gratitude for everyone’s efforts, and the fact that every member embraces the purpose for which this work was created – helping the less fortunate in our area.
