Sunday, Dec 27th - after the morning service we will need to get the table of card/candles/etc. down. Cathy Jackson has asked to have the stuff to sell at her Pine Ridge yard sale next Spring but we will need a few people to help get the tables down and load the stuff. It would also be nice if we could go to Cathy's to help her unload it too. Any volunteers?
Sunday, Jan. 10th - We will start taking orders for Superbowl Subs. We'll need people to sit at the table and take people's orders and money. They have to pay up front so we can have some cash to buy the ingredients.
Thursday, Jan. 14th @ 7pm @ church - our first team meeting. All registration materials and payment due.
Sunday, Jan. 24th @ 6pm @ church - Jenny will be doing a concert and we'll be taking up an offering for the work project. So far we made around $400 (I think) on the table of card/candles. We need to raise $4500.00 so we've got about $4000 to go. The team will be acting as ushers to take up the offering. If you have a team t-shirt from a previous year you can wear it.
Saturday, Feb. 6th - 12 noon @ church - Team members need to be there and plan to stay until we have all of the subs made up and stored. Everyone who works will benefit. If you don't work, you don't receive any of the fundraiser money.
Sunday, Feb. 7th @ 12 noon - SUB Pickup for Superbowl. We'll need team members to help deliver subs (at church) to those who ordered them.
This week we will be shipping the gifts that our church bought for the family on the Rez that wouldn't have otherwise had any gifts this Christmas. It worked out great - each of the 7 children ended up with 6 gifts each - except for the only girl has eight gifts. Mom got a few gifts as well and each child will have a stocking stuffed with small toys and candy (socks instead of candy for the baby). We'll also be sending along cookies and fudge and hot cocoa mix for the whole family to enjoy.
Thanks to each of you who gave. As you sit around your Christmas tree this Christmas, take a moment to remember that somewhere on the Reservation are some very happy little kids who will always remember that some church somewhere showered them with love one Christmas.
