Announcements & Forms Due
When I was a child, I couldn’t wait for December to come because I knew Santa Claus would come and bring me a few presents. The saddest day of the year was the day after Christmas because I knew I had to wait 364 days! Now a days people put up their decorations in November and take
them down the day after Christmas - this makes me sad - It’s like they want to take down the magic. In Maryland, we put the tree up the week before and have it stay up until New Year’s. Whatever your tradition, Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanza, celebrate the season with family, friends, and faith. Help others when you can and always be humble and kind.
Love and hugs, Debbie
