 “Give a Gift in Someone’s name”: There are envelopes in the Parish Hall that you can give a give a gift to one of St. Andrew’s Designated Funds and give that gift in someone else’s name. They will receive a card from St. Andrew’s letting them know that a gift was given on their behalf.

NOTE: if you provided cooked goodies or other items for the boughs & bonbons fair, please pick up your personal containers from the table in the Prince Room as soon as possible. Thank you. 

A lavish holiday dinner, open to all, will be served at At. Andrew's at 12:30 on Christmas day. Parishioners who wish to donate a dish please sign on the sheet in the parish hall. Items such as olives, pickles, cheese/crackers, vegetables and pies will be warmly received. But most of all I would really like it if Santa would bring me a clean- up crew. if so inclined please indicate so on the same sign-up sheet. Thank you in advance. Thank you. ~Carol Tubman
