Hope you are all doing well.
It’s that time of year again, "𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐬 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞" when we share with those of us who are less fortunate.
This summer for the past three years we have been able to have our usual family day fund raising picnic. Thanks to all the members who helped and donate to make it a successful event.
For more that twenty years we have held our annual food treat program for the elderly and shut-ins in our Village. During the pandemic, we were still able to carry out the project through your generous donations.
This year again, we are hoping that members will donate to this worthwhile cause, no matter the amount you can afford. "𝐎𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐜𝐨 𝐟𝐮𝐥𝐥 𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐭"
Thanks in advance for your continued support, you can contact me or our treasurer Carl Beharie to make your donations. Paying your annual dues of $25.00 is a good way to continue your support. You can also donate by clicking on the donate button below.
