HEADSTART HATS & MITTENS:
Due to the difficulties for people to shop this year, we won’t have the Christmas hat and mitten tree for the Headstart children. Instead, we are doing a winter project for the children. Our committee is donating our budgeted money to Headstart. We will collect money donations if you’d like. If you’ve already bought a hat and mittens, we will collect those also. We ask that they are one size fits all, and that the mittens are warm. We will present these gifts to Headstart on December 23rd.. The teachers will take care of each child’s needs. Please give your gifts to LuAnn, Allison, or Jean by December 20th.  Thank You!
