BurnOutWELCOA: A Quick Guide to Beating Burnout
Resilience is the ability of a system to cope with change.  Our resilience can weaken when we get overly stressed with too much to do, too little sleep and lack of attention to good nutrition and healthy exercise.  Mid-semester is a good time to make deliberate changes to our mindset to allow our resilience to stay strong. 
 
WELCOA has a quick guide to help us stay on course through these cold, dark days and mounds of work.

PEOAnnual PEO Chapter D Hanging Basket Fundraiser 2019
It's time for the annual P.E.O.* Hanging Flower Basket Sale. Kathy Stover, CSI retiree, moved to Boise and passed her duties onto Alice Anderson, another CSI retiree and PEO member. I have been helping her since she retired.

*P.E.O. is a Philanthropic Educational Organization that celebrates the advancement of women, supports women's higher education through scholarships, grants, awards and loans to help women achieve their highest educational aspirations. Twin Falls local Chapter D of P.E.O. sponsors this annual flower sale and donates all of the profits from the sales to these higher education projects. P.E.O. Chapter D appreciates your support in our annual fundraiser! Thank you!

There are at least five different PEO chapters in Twin Falls and several more around the Magic Valley area. Many of the members are educators, but women from nearly every profession and walk of life all over the world belong.

Baskets are $25.00 each (23.58 + 1.42 tax) The baskets are huge and they last all summer long!

Baskets varieties this year include:
Geraniums in Red, Pink, or Mother Nature's Surprise & Mixed Annuals in a wide variety of colors


Ann Keane is helping PEO out with this project and has order forms up at the SSC reception desk that she can interoffice to you if you are interested. Or you can stop by her desk.
Ann has to have the order sheet and payments turned into Alice on Tuesday, April 2.

They make great Mother's Day Gifts

Baskets will be available for pickup Fri., May 10th between 12:00-6:00 pm at the TF Nazarene Church parking lot (1231 Washington St N - across from CSI)

Checks can be made payable to PEO Chapter D
