Messiah Sing Along

You will be thrilled to know that the UCB was able to obtain tickets again this year for November 24 as everyone gathers to sing the Messiah along with the Utah Symphony. Last year those who attended claimed that it was one of the best experiences they had had in a long time. At 7:30 on Saturday night you can join with the Utah Symphony and raise your voice to the beautiful strains of Handel's Messiah. It is just the thing to turn your thoughts to the Spirit of Christmas.

Tickets are $10 each. Call 801-292-1156 to reserve yours. The tickets are limited, so don't wait too long. Send your check to the UCB at PO Box 1415, Bountiful, UT 84011-1415 or call Tina to use your credit card for the purchase. Tina can be reached at (801) 245-9264. Those wishing to participate need to be able to get to Abravanel Hall on their own. Hope to see you there.

We will also be holding a bake sale from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, in conjunction with the Christmas Party and Boutique. As usual, we are requesting donations of baked goods and other goodies from our members to sell on this day. Please call Tina Terry at 801-245-9264 to let her know the details of your donations. We do ask that they be plated or wrapped ready for purchase, since we do not have a way to re-package them at the sale. Be sure to bring a bit of extra cash to the Christmas party to shop both the bake sale and the boutique. Happy holidays, and happy shopping!
