New Years Eve

You well may be asking, “What’s so special about New Year’s Eve?”  Well I could go into a long description about the sidereal year and the path of the Earth’s orbit around the sun, but I think you would rather know about our evening.  Here’s what makes our New Year’s Celebration special, in no particular order:

We do not have access to the dishes of the church, nor to the dishwashers, and so we ask you to be mindful of that as you prepare your dishes.  As always, we encourage you to bring your own mugs and / or water bottles.

We will not be gathering up any “lost and found” items as we have no way of knowing if the item belongs to someone from the church.  Items left behind will remain at the church.  So be like Santa and make a list!
