UCB Annual Christmas Party

Date: Saturday, December 7, 2019

Time: 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Where: DSBVI, 250 North 1950 West, Salt Lake City

If you would like to help this year, call me—my number is below my name. This year we will have the puppy raiser helping.

Here comes Santa Claus!

Get your reindeer in shape, and get your bells out, for we are going to have a great party this year!!! We’ll have Santa Claus, a great turkey dinner by the Golden Corral, and wonderful tasty desserts. We are trying to get a jazz band from Copper Hills High School, and, along with that, we will be singing Christmas carols. This year we will have a very small craft fair (6 tables). These will be first come first served, and you must be blind to set up your table. Instead of a cost for the table this year, we would ask for a small donation from your sales (you give what you think is best). Call me if you are interested. We will have gifting tables this year (one for adults and one for children). How this works: We ask each participant to bring an unwrapped gift; it may be something you’ve been wanting to give away, something you have made, or something lightly used (no clothing, please); for the children, you might bring a new or lightly used toy. There is no money value on these, the gift can be anything that is nice. At the end of the activity, each person will have a chance to pick something from the gifting table for themselves.
