We are planning on adopting a Christmas family through the Help Center again this year. So we will be collecting, at the December 6th party, or by mail *, donations of cash, and/or gift cards from Fairway Mkt., Target, or Walmart which will be used to fulfill their wish list..  It would be appreciated if checks were made out to Toni Berthelotte rather than the Garden Club, since she is the one playing Santa Claus. Note   'Christmas family' in the memo section and you will receive a donation receipt for your taxes.  *35061 Barbara Lee Dr, Mt. Ctr CA 92561

NOTE: Your dues should be paid by 12/31 Please check your current listing to be sure we have all of your information and that it is accurate. Let us know if not.
