Book Chat: Looking for something new to do in 2018? Join us on Tuesday, January 9, to discuss Lisette’s List, by Susan Vreeland. We gather once a month at 6:30 p.m. in the Trinity Library. Bring a light dinner (dessert is provided) and enjoy fellowship and lively conversation. Contact Kathy Maher, Kathyngs@gmail.com.

Crafts for a Cause: Thanks to your support for the Holiday Bazaar, Crafts for a Cause is roaring into 2018 with energy and purpose! We made more than $3,800, which easily funds another year of supplying comfort items to hospitals and shelters. We’ll also be able to support the Leadership Center and Heart2Heart in Honduras, Art for Humanity, and several other causes chosen by the group.

If you would like to help make the pillows, blankets, dolls and dresses, we meet on alternating Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 in Room 124. Upcoming dates: Mon., Jan. 8, and Mon., Jan. 22. All adults are welcome; no skills required; instruction provided. Read more…
