FRIENDS Holiday Party

Friday December 6, 2019 - 06:30 PM - 09:00 PM

***We kindly ask that you RSVP by Sunday, December 1st. Please remember this is a catered event, and we will be charged per person. We understand illness and emergencies arise at times, but last year we had quite a few “no shows” resulting in large quantities of leftover food.***

We look forward to celebrating the holiday season with our wonderful F.R.I.E.N.D.S. families!!!! We have a delicious catered meal planned for all that can attend!! We ask that you just bring a dessert to share with the group.

Santa will be joining us as well. If you would like Santa to give a small present to your child(ren), please bring a wrapped present with a name tag.

This is one of our largest meetings of the year! So come hungry and ready to celebrate. Any questions please touch base with Evan Routzahn at
