On Wednesday, November 16, 2016, fifteen of our church's Women of the World gathered for a potluck lunch, much socializing, and to work on our Christmas projects.
We decided in October to adopt a Christmas family from Kenwood School this year, so we were busy writing their Christmas wishes on ornaments to put on the “giving tree” that we set up in the Fellowship Hall. There was such excitement as we talked, laughed, and got to work.
Having finished that, we got busy preparing for the Gingerbread Extravaganza. If you have never been to a gingerbread house building party, please save the date: Saturday, December 3, 2016 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. It'll be an afternoon you won’t soon forget.
Each child decorates their own small graham cracker gingerbread house to take home. There will be movies and popcorn, cookies to decorate, crafts to create, and the Christmas spirit surrounding you.
Thanks to Linda Salomon, this wonderful activity continues year after year. The women of WOW recognized Linda at our meeting by presenting her with a gingerbread plate. Please let us know if you are coming so we will have enough houses for everyone. Call the church at 707-833-1087 or email Linda directly to RSVP.
On Wednesday, December 21, 2016, at noon in the Fellowship Hall, WOW will host our annual Christmas lunch and gift exchange. Please save the date. Cathy Valerga and Linda Salomon do a wonderful job with this program. We set a limit of $15 for the gifts. There is a lot of gift “stealing”, laughter, and great food. Plan to come and have a wonderful time. There will be a sign up sheet in Fellowship Hall or call the church at 707-833-1087 to RSVP.
One more date to save: October 10-11, 2017 will be our fall women's retreat at Westerbeke Ranch. More information later in Notes and News.
