UCB Christmas Party

December 4th, 2021
Time: to be announced
Place: Division of Services for the Blind

Yes, we will have a Christmas party this year. Not too much information yet. We want to get the news out and get ready for this party! If you would like to help, please call me. We are in the planning stages of this, thinking of a bake sale and craft tables for those who are blind and would like to sell their goods. Please let me know if you want a table this year for your craft items. We might even have a silent auction fund raiser during this party. More details to come later.
This year we will be offering Christmas pictures. Plan to bring your family and your kids and have a wonderful Christmas picture done by Kate Schofield Balzly of Schofield Photography (Leslie’s daughter). Watch for more information on this in the October newsletter. We want to make this a great party, so if you know of someone who would enjoy this let them know. We look forward to seeing you at this event. Watch for more detailed information in the October newsletter. For questions or to volunteer call or text me, Sandy England, at 801-634-8002.
