Parish Christmas Fair

Greetings:

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Join us this Thursday evening at the Holtzman’s Barn at 5 pm to try our hand at making decorative wreaths and sprays for the Lincoln Greene Senior Living Center to look festive this Christmas season. Even if you’re not crafty, the Anderson family is always willing to give direction and make corrections to any masterpiece! It’s a fun time, with snacks, music, heat from a wood stove and laughs.

Our parish Christmas Fair is next Saturday! Come for some fun, games, baked goodies, delicious ham dinner with all the fixin’s, Santa, music and chances at raffle drawings. Last year, we pre-sold dinner tickets a month in advance, and only sold 35 dinner tickets, and over 70 tickets at the door. This year, we will sell dinner tickets before the 4:30 pm Mass in addition to after Mass. This way, if you’d like, you may purchase your dinner ticket before Mass next Saturday to avoid waiting in line. Again, as I said in a previous bulletin column, the food is so good, that, word of mouth advertising is all that’s needed. Don’t miss out! If you, your family, or someone you know, would like to have dinner but cannot afford ticket(s)…please see me!

Be sure to also take a chance in the parish’s Big Christmas Raffle. Tickets are a ten dollar donation or three tickets for 25. Three winners will be drawn at the night of the Christmas Fair by Santa. 1st place wins $500, 2nd Place wins $250 and 3rd place wins $100. You do not need to be present to win.

Always remember to pray for the safety of all the members of the Armed Forces, those troops in harm’s way, and especially for parishioners who are currently serving in the Armed Forces. (I currently have 4 of them on my prayer list).

May God continue to bless our little parish family here in the White Mountains!
