General Meeting – December 9th

9:30 Social, 10 Program
Foothills United Methodist Church (King Hall)
4031 Avocado Blvd., La Mesa, CA 91941

Our annual winter party & program will feature our community impact opportunity Good Shepherd Ministry Center & the vocal group Cantate.

At our October general meeting, we heard from Susan Naslund, director of Good Shepherd Ministry Center, which provides food, clothing, & diapers to those in need in the El Cajon community. Donations are welcome at our December 9th meeting! Please place your donations of non-perishable food & gently used clothing on the decorated table. For more information about Good Shepherd & what it provides, click here.

Cantate Women’s Ensemble is a group of 22 Granite Hills High School Choir alumnae & friends brought together a year ago by retired GHHS Choir Director Merryl Nelson. Granite Hills classes represented range from 1999 to 2012 when Mrs. Nelson retired.

Wear winter colors & prepare to celebrate the shortest days of the year. Our meetings are open to the public so bring a friend! Click for flyer.
