Jim Uram:
  1. The Bell ringing went very well –the totals will be out in a couple weeks.
  2. Don’t forget the Christmas Party – Next Tuesday at Lone Pine, Social at 5:30 and Dinner at 6:30.
  3. The Uram Open House December 28 – 4-8 PM.  (Editor’s note: All are invited and it is a party you should not miss. Stop in…you’ll be happy!)

Volunteer Hours:

Don’t forget to report your volunteer hours. You don’t have to “itemize” the hours. You can just say “hospital” and put total hours down. The date can be the date of report or activity. Remember: you can just hand Tom Drewitz a piece of paper and he’ll enter it for you. Try to do it yourself…it’s fun!

As always, the Chorale gave an inspirational and professional performance of Christmas Music from around the world.
