Christmas Social & White Elephant Gift Exchange-All Invited! 

Sunday, December 9, 2-4 pm, Education Room

The Carson Valley United Methodist Women invite all women of our church to join them for a Christmas Social, Sunday, Dec. 9, from 2-4 p.m. in the Education Room of the church.  The social is scheduled on a Sunday so those who work can also join us for fun and fellowship. No program is planned, just fellowship time. Space is limited, so please sign up as soon as possible on the sign-up sheet on the UMW board in the Fellowship Hall.  Board members will provide the refreshments and set up for the social. All you have to do is bring a wrapped “White Elephant” gift for an exchange. White elephant, ladies, means you don’t go out and buy something fancy, just find a give away item in your house...serious or funny!  Invite a friend, someone new to the congregation, a family member. Just sign up and join us for the afternoon.  Questions? Call president Maxane Hylton at 782-5648.

These tins will then be distributed to shut-ins and those who just need a visit.  If anyone would like to help us distribute the cookies and/or visit people at this time of year, please contact Maxane Hylton at 782-5648. You don’t have to visit that Sunday--just within the following couple of days.
