Dinner and Program
In keeping with the true spirit of Christmas, it would be wonderful to see your family’s Christmas Nativity scene at a dinner table for the ward party.
Just bring it with you to the party, for safe keeping, and take it home with you when the party is over. Sign up on the RS blog by leaving a comment, or put your name on the sign-up list that comes around.

Julie Palmer works with a committee for the Festival of Trees. If anyone of 16 years old is interested in volunteering during the festival as a host/hostess please get in touch with her. This involves a three or four hour shift monitoring an area within the festival, greeting guests, answering questions, etc. It is a lot of fun and a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Also if anyone is interested in donating hand crafted items to the festival these items will be sold at the “craft store” within the festival. All hand crafted items are welcome and some things I have seen sold are: handmade cards, jewelry, blankets, quilts, Christmas decorations, neighbor gifts, etc. If you are interested please get in touch with Julie.
