Christmas Store 2016 December 7 th

Each year the children of Assumption look forward to the Christmas Store.  It is the day the school gym is converted into a magical wonderland of gifts for them to purchase for family and friends.  This magic could not happen without the help of the Assumption elves – parents, grandparents, and friends.  While the Christmas Store provides the children the opportunity to select from a large array of pre-purchased items, our handmade crafts are always a big hit.  These crafts items are where we need your help! moncler aredhel aphrotiti

Christmas crafting is the place to be if you would like to sit, chat, snack and do a bit of crafting.  We meet in the multi-purpose room on Wednesday mornings (8:15 – 11:00 am) and in the evening on Tuesdays (7:00 – 9:00 pm).

All crafting skills are encouraged to attend – we have something for everyone to work on!

Our kickoff for Wednesday crafting is September 21st and October 4th for Tuesday evenings.  Please click here to see the full schedule of crafting sessions.

We are looking for 18oz clean  soup cans for a project.  If you have any to donate please leave them on the counter on the right side of the multi-purpose room.
