Daybreak needs you!

Have you ever asked yourself, what are the Daybreak Pillars? What events are going on later this year? How can I get involved? What the heck are D.R.I.V.E. points?

If you are interested in learning about these things or how to become a volunteer in one of the Daybreak Committees, drop by the mixer tonight (Thursday April 29th) at the Information Pavilion anytime from 6-8. Learn about upcoming events for this year and about the committee chairs. Also, enjoy some yummy catered foods.

I hope to see you there!

PS Everyone should of gotten an email from Daybreak about this. If you didn't, please check you spam inbox and make sure your emails aren't going in there. If you still don't get it, email Ruth Vest at

Play Group this Friday

For playgroup this week we have an appointment at the fun Gale Center in South Jordan on Friday (23rd) at 10:30. It's a place where kids can learn about the history of our town, and there are displays such as an old-fashioned schoolhouse, grocery store, farmhouse, etc. Let me just warn you that sometimes the people who work there can be pretty, uh...not-so-understanding-of-kids'-desires-to-touch-everything, so just keep close to your kids and follow the rules and we'll be fine. I promise it's worth the effort. Let's try to be on time (hard, I know!) since they'll start the "tour" at 10:30 and we have an hour. I hope I haven't scared you off. Please come, your kids will love it!

Looking ahead: We're thinking every other week for playgroup so that we have good attendance, and one local, one field trip a month. At our little planning meeting we also thought it would be nice to just have a backup in place beforehand for the outdoor venues so that if the weather doesn't cooperate, you'll know where to go.

If you are not receiving emails directly from me and would like to get the updates about playgroup, please send me your email address:

DIRECTIONS TO THE GALE CENTER: Take 10400 S. heading east. Just past Redwood Road, turn left at the NEXT light (1540 W., 1575 W., Beckstead Lane--not sure which of these appear on the street sign). It's the same street that in the opposite direction would take you to the library. Anyway, head down a block and the road empties into the Gale Center parking lot, 10300 S. Beckstead Lane.

Daybreak Resident Bake Sale

I am the new Connecting Committee Chair for Daybreak. We are having a bake sale at The Garden Affair. It is on Saturday April 24th from 8am to Noon at the Daybreak Community Center. This is going to be such a cool event. I will post more about it later.

I need help! If anyone can donate some homemade baked goods (ya know, cookies, brownies, muffins, etc.) please let me know. You can email me at, or, or leave a comment. All money made will be donated to our sister city in Africa.

If you know anyone else in Daybreak who might be able to help, please give them my email address (or theirs to mine, whichever). I haven't lived here too long so I pretty much only know people in our ward. So please help me spread the word.

We also need volunteers for that day to help sell the baked goods that day!

Danielle Brems

I just wanted to post the e-mail I just got from Danielle-

Hi Cami,
Thanks for checking up on us. We have had a long, crazy week and by the end of it, the adoption did not go through. Lots of issues were coming up with the birth mother and she was having a hard time making the decision in the end. We never thought it work out this way as we have all been set on this adoption for 5 months! However, when everything was said and done, my husband and I knew that having an open adoption with this couple could never work out and be healthy for all five of us so that feeling has been carrying us through all the other hard stuff. If you wanted to you could announce that our birth mother decided to parent and ask everyone to refer us when they hear of a crisis pregnancy. Our adoption blog is

Let's Play!

Wanna get out of the house and enjoy the good weather? (Hopefully) Come bring your kids or Grand-kids to the Park on Navarro and Degray this Friday at 10:30. If you don't have kids and you find yourself at home, come hang out and chat with your sisterchicks!
Thanks for setting this up Mary!

Card Group Details!

From Elisha Johnson

I have decided to become a Stampin’ Up demonstrator. NOT to make money
by any means but, to get new ideas and products and techniques for
card making. SOOO in order to keep my account open I will need each
card group participant to purchase $10.00 a month in product or $30.00
every three months. Whichever! This will help not only me grow my
products but you as well! I will need a commitment of 12 months. I
will showcase something new each month for card group to give you
ideas and INSPIRE! Also because I will have 3-5 projects each month I
am asking for reimbursement. Bring $2.00 with you each month. That
will cover the cost of supplies for me. That way I am not out any
money but enjoying the group along with you.

Because this is a card swap group you must also bring X amount of (the
same) cards which you have made to group each month. (You will leave
with the same amount). I will be making them as well but I will not be
in on the prize. A prize will be awarded for the best card. Voted on
by you! I will give you the theme of your card to make each month
i.e.: birthday, get well, congrats, etc. That way we all leave with
different cards for different occasions.

If you do not want to do the card swap and just the group let me know.
I would still love to have you come.

We will also have a door prize. You will enter your name in a drawing
when you come in and we will draw to see who gets the most awesome
prize of the day!

Because us ladies like to have treats at our gatherings feel free to
bring a treat to share.

I really hope that this will be a great experience for all of us and
we can all become inspired and have FUN!!! Time away from family to
just hang out as girls should be a blast!
