Trivia Night / Silent Auction News

We are still selling tables for the trivia night this Saturday, December 3rd. If you are attending, please let me know if you will be bringing children (4-12 y/o) that will be using the childcare. We need to know the number of children that will be in childcare, to make sure we staff it appropriately. The children will be in the care of upper school students, one of whom is certified in First Aid, CPR & AED.

We will have light appetizers, but you are more than welcome to bring any snacks you would like.

We will have the silent auction baskets set out on Friday morning for a sneak peek.
