Christmas for Utica Project
Time is drawing near to complete the project for the Refugee families in Utica. Lisa Wood and crew are making stars for the Christmas trees that will be donated. It would be a wonderful treat if we could also send along some donated small tree decorations. So, bring down those holiday decorations a little early, dust them off and see if you have anything to donate. There is a collection box in the office or you may contact Barbara Burke at 536-7020. We would like to mail these out in just a few weeks!

Meet here at 1 p.m. to register to walk or to donate to the cause!
