MOTHERS GUILD CHRISTMAS DINNER THANK YOU
Special thanks to the Freshman Moms and Representatives, volunteers, and the Junior and Senior Vice Presidents who hosted the very festive Mothers' Guild Christmas Dinner on December 4th.
At the dinner, we celebrated the success of our 2017 Craft Show by presenting Mr. Gregory Geruson with a check. The proceeds from the Craft Show will help to provide for installation of the Audio Technology package in the Holt Center Theater. This year's Craft Show raised a record setting $45,000!
Our Poinsettia Fundraiser was a success again this year. Special thanks to Rita Charlton for chairing the sale, and to all who purchased poinsettias. The chapel altar looked beautiful adorned with the donated poinsettias.
Also, thank you to Jodi Zelinsky for chairing the St. John's Hospice Shoebox drive. We appreciate the generosity of all who donated the shoeboxes for homeless men.

If you would like to purchase an 'HGP Mom' apron, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will also be available at the February meeting. The cost is $20.
