Holiday Party

The Holiday Party will be held on December 9th in the Fellowship Hall at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Corner of Glen Ave. and South Reynold’s Street, Scotia, NY beginning at
12:00 Noon.

In the spirit of “Helping Hands for the Holidays,” we will donate toys or books to our local Ronald McDonald House for children going into Albany Medical Center for treatment. Please bring only new toys or books for children ages 2 to 8.

Gift Exchange: Members who would like to be involved in a Holiday Gift Exchange should wrap a gift with an average price of $15.00 in value and bring it to the party. Please do not place any nametags on your gift. Only those who bring a gift to exchange are eligible to participate. We will use the same exchange rules as last year with each gift only being permitted to be swapped once; however, due to more people attending, you will have to be prepared to make your swap within one minute after your number is pulled or you will be asked to just take a new unopened gift from those remaining!

Dish to share: 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.

If you have questions on the Holiday Party, please send an e-mail to Cindy Jennings at: UNYHS@aol.com or feel free to call her at (518) 541-3598.

Please Bring your Beautiful Photos to our Holiday Party! Since members had so much fun at our first two photo contests, we thought we would repeat it again at this year’s Holiday Gathering. So please sort through all those beautiful photos you have taken! Photos must be 5″ X 7″ size with no frames or mats.
