This year at Christmas, we will again be remembering our veterans at the Dayton VA Medical Center with “Shoeboxes for Vets”. Look for the Christmas tree in the Narthex with ornaments showing what items are needed by the Vets. Please take an ornament, do some shopping, and return the ornament along with your purchased items as well as a plastic shoe box and place under the tree. Do not wrap your purchases, the volunteer elves will do this when the boxes are assembled. All items have to be returned to the church by Sunday, Dec. 16. If any of you would like to volunteer as an elf, we will be assembling the shoeboxes on Monday morning, Dec. 17 in the Hospitality Room. There will be a sign-up sheet by the tree. Last year, a dozen elves volunteered and completed 117 shoeboxes and two additional large cardboard boxes filled with board games in under three hours. Let’s try to exceed last year! If you have any questions, please contact Brenda and Joe Ricketts at 885-2477 or 623-1689.
