PARENT SOCIAL ON NOVEMBER 14 - WINE AND SILENT AUCTION DONATIONS NEEDED
Time to book your sitter because the Parent Social on November 14th is quickly approaching! Last year’s Wine Raffle was a huge hit so we’re doing it again! Please help us by donating a bottle (or two) to our wine collectors Marianne Marquet, marimarquet@verizon.net, and Tory Stagnaro, torystagnaro@gmail.com. Remember - the more we collect the more winners we have! And who couldn’t use some extra wine over the holidays to give as gifts, to serve to friends, and to calm your nerves?!

We are still looking for donated auction items. Any event tickets, gift cards (even the ones collecting dust!), specialty goods and services are greatly appreciated. Questions? Contact Peggy Myers, peggyusc@gmail.com. But most importantly, we want to see you! Get those response cards in so we know you are coming!

Many thanks to the generous Beaumont parents and students who came together on October 10 to help spruce up Hilltop House (just in time for the Parent Social) and to gather a whopping 150 pounds of apples for Chester County Food Bank and others in need of food. It was a beautiful, fun-filled day and we look forward to our next service adventure together.
