Every year Margaret takes a group of New Gardeners to a local Wal-mart and we anonymously pay off several families’ Christmas gift layaways. If you would like to be part of this lovely gift to our wider community, feel free to donate money (if you write a check, make sure you mark it “for Christmas layaway”) or join us on our trip to Walmart on Sunday, December 8 at 1 p.m. Every year members of New Garden Friends Meeting fill handmade stockings with treats to share with elder members of the Meeting who are no longer able to regularly come to worship. Join us at Simple Christmas, December 14 to help create the stockings or pick one up from the RE bulletin to fill with treats and deliver. Giving and visiting is a wonderful way to celebrate this season that is all about spreading Light in the world! Stockings will be available to pick up and fill and deliver on December 15.
