Christmas Charity Event – Wednesday, December 7, 2016

We wanted to let everyone know that we picked up 30 Angel Tree tags from the Salvation Army last week (10 children, 3 gifts each = 30 total).

The Section Leadership Committee members are planning to meet at Toys-R-Us (next to Arnot Mall) next Wednesday, December 7th at 6:00pm to go shopping for the kids.

If there is anything that we cannot get at Toys-R-Us, the Arnot Mall is just across the street.

Please email if you plan to join in the shopping next week, so we can plan to include you!
