Holiday Gifts & Giving

This year we are wrapping up a bundle of gifts to share with you and the community. Think elves, gifting, and shenanigans. The elves will be in top form as they prepare the membership for the holidays.

Our first gift will be the gift of giving to Rachel’s House as we have done in the past. For a list of needed items, click here. The program manager added they were always in need of breakfast items such as creamer, coffee, prepackaged breakfast goodies such as Pop-Tarts®, sugar, fruit, instant oatmeal, etc. Donations of money and gift cards to Walmart are always appreciated. (Suggested amount $25.00.)

Finally let the shenanigans begin as the Merry Ukes provide the music. The elves will happily take your picture (on your phone) with Santa and there may be some audience participation involved. So dress in your holiday colors and get ready for a festive morning of fun, frolic, and lots of laughter!!!

Invite friends–our general meetings are open to the public.
