Here comes Santa Claus!

Put your smiles on and come to our Annual Christmas Party! With Santa, food, entertainment, singing carols, gifting table, craft tables. Read on for the exciting news on this year's party! Food will be by the Golden Corral, a turkey dinner and a wonderful surprise dessert. We will enjoy the Copper Hills High jazz band, and we will sing Christmas carols with Sandy Ruconich playing the piano. We might have a special solo singer, too! Bring spending money to do a bit of Christmas shopping, for there will be a small craft boutique as well as the traditional bake sale, and any extra dinners will be sold as part of the bake sale. Craft tables : there are two or three left. No cost for tables, we are asking for a donation to the Utah Council of the Blind from what you sell. No reserved spots for the tables. First come gets which ever table they want. Call Sandy England with any questions. Gifting table for the first time for adults. This is the way it will work. Bring a lightly-used item or a new item (no clothes, please). Put on the gifting table. When all have put their gifts on the table, then we will have people go up and pick one item until everyone gets one, and then we will see if there will be more to give out. You don't pay for the gifting item, and there are no restrictions on the value of the gift you bring to give away. Any gifts left over will go to the Utah Council of the Blind to do this again someday. Toy gifting table for the kids is the same way. Please make sure toys work and are for ages 3-12. No clothes, please.

This year some of the volunteers will be puppy raisers plus others. However, I still need help to set up and take down and through the whole party!
