    Christmas is coming! And so is our Gift of Giving Party for the Boys & Girls Club. Our Party will be bigger than ever as we adapt to the growing B & G Club. This year, we'll open our doors twice so that all Boys & Girls Club members can "shop" for gifts to give to their caregivers. Party dates are Dec. 9 and Dec. 10. Thanks to volunteers from FUMC and Grace Lutheran Church, this double-header event will be as successful and meaningful for the children as always. Save both dates!
