It is that time of the year again!   The nights are downright cold.  Christmas decorations are popping up around the neighborhood.   And our big Annual Holiday Party is on Thursday, December 21st.   We very cordially invite all our members, volunteers, and their guests to come join us for our year end celebration.   We'll recognize our wonderful volunteers and all their great accomplishments, share holiday treats and appetizers, socialize ... and do some shopping!   The party features our big silent auction, always brimming with some quality items donated by our members.  Even if you have not been to a meeting in a while or if this would be your very first meeting, we encourage you to come out and partake in the merriment.   The party is from 7 pm to 9 pm at the Oaklette United Methodist Church.    Please bring a desert to share and join the festivities.   Also, the Oaklette United Methodist Church food pantry will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items.

Adopt-A-Park Volunteer Work Day
Date: Saturday, December 16th, 9:30 am to Noon
Location: Plymouth Community Park at 701 Pond Lane (two blocks north of Border Rd)

Plymouth Community Park is a small waterside park along the Indian River that is in need of some love.   

The city will provide garbage bags. Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves. There may be some pruning work, if you can bring some pruners.  We will have water and lots of snacks. (We also always encourage folks to bring their own water in reusable bottles to minimize use of plastic bottles). Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.

Annual Holiday Party

Location: Oaklette United Methodist Church, 520 Oaklette Dr.

This will be our end of year celebration to recognize our many accomplishments, recognize our volunteers, and socialize. Please bring a desert or appetizer to share and join the festivities. We'll have a silent auction, so you can finish some Christmas shopping too.   And if you have some nice items to donate to the auction, those are greatly appreciated.  Please also consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food items for the Oaklette United Methodist Church food pantry to the meeting this evening. 

First Day Hike
