Below you'll find some tips for doing your own room make over. First thing you'll need to do is empty the room from top to bottom. You may want to leave any large furniture that you are sure will remain in the room. Arrange pictures and wall items in a safe place where you can lay them out. If you empty cupboards and shelves, put those items on a large table for sorting later. Fill nail holes, touch up paint or paint the whole room. Now walk through all the rooms in your house search- ing for any pieces of furni- ture that could be incorpo- rated in the cleared room. Arrange furniture pieces only back into the room. Walk through the house again looking for accent items such as lamps, pic- .tures, shelves, pillows, vases etc. Select wall accents that will go back in the room. Do not pound a nail until the wall items have all been selected and the exact spot they will be hung is deter- mined throughout the entire room. After the walls have been arranged begin selecting items to place on shelves, tables and furniture. This is also a great time to look at any window treat- ment changes that may be needed. If you have always had a heavy treatment, con- sider little or no window treatment and vise versa. Window treatment can. make a tremendous differ- ence in the overall look of a room. Did you find that you are missing certain elements to give your room a finished look? Do one more house search. When you're finished, create a shopping wish list of items you will start hunting for in shops, at garage sales or flea markets. If you have items left over, place them in other places throughout to house or pack them away for your next room makeover!

The girls were given minnows and instructions and set out to find their fishing spot. The challenge begins. Who will catch that first fish? It was a fairly nice day. even though my fingers froze, the girls enjoyed watching their poles and dipping out the ice. Well, sad to say. the girls didn't even have a nib- ble and their numbers didn't match any of the numbers drawn for prizes. The troop now headed for the Minnewaska High School to unload their gear for the night. The troop enjoyed a spaghetti Supper. and had another chance to sign up for a table prize. Finally, it's time to go swim- ming and during this time. someone came in and called out for Troop 641.
