The annual members meeting will be held at 5pm. This will be followed by a candlelit walk and the holiday party with dinner and fellowship after the walk. At 7pm we will take turns decorating the Christmas tree with your special ornament. Later, we will hold a holiday split-the-pot raffle.

Every year we ask members to bring a gift for those in need. For the children please bring hats, mittens, or a new toy. For adults please bring a non-perishable food item, toiletries, or household goods.

We ask each family or individual attending the party to make one holiday ornament to decorate our Christmas tree. We will take turns sharing the special meaning of each ornament and then hang them on our tree. The tree will stay decorated until after the holidays, on display at the Nature Center.
