Holiday Party

Our Holiday Party will be Saturday, December 14th – Gather at 12:00 Noon with lunch to be served at 12:15 pm.

This year’s gathering will again be a joint celebration with the UNYHS and HADS and will be at Dave and Cindy Jennings’ Church (Prince of Peace Lutheran Church at 4 Northcrest Dr., Clifton Park) in their fellowship hall
just off Rt. 146.

Dish to Share and Door Prizes:
As is our tradition, each member is asked to bring a favorite holiday dish to pass. A stove is available if food must be held at a warm temperature. As in the past, everyone is encouraged to bring a door prize to donate to make our festivities more memorable.

“Helping Hands” Toy or Book Donation:
We have decided to continue with our traditional theme again this year of “Helping Hands for the Holidays.” We ask both the Hosta and Daylily members to donate a NEW toy or Children’s book that will be given to the Ronald McDonald Houses located near and in Albany Medical Center. The three-house complex has a special “Toy Closet” where a child can select one toy to take with them when heading for surgery or a major procedure at the Medical Center. We ask that those willing to donate should be careful to not purchase toys from bulk imported stores where the toy may not have US Safety Approval due to the way it is manufactured. Also, please do not wrap the gift. The ages for the toys or books should be 2 to 12 years old. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Cindy – Holiday Party Chair
