Home for the Holidays

Hello Young at Heart Friends and Family;

No need to dream, it’s going to be a White Christmas

 for sure! 

❄ Today we had a wonderful lunch as Mime Artist Dawn Day helped us celebrate the Reason for the Season. On Wednesday, this month’s BirthDay Celebrants and their friends will be treated to Christmas music and a sing-a-long with the Mother Singers, directed by Michele Ogren. This month BirthDay Celebrants are: Pat Adams, Carol Bos, Paula Broek, Joan Doyle, Bob Dragan, Kathy Edington, JoAnne Gensler, Pat Gietzen, Arlene Hummel, Fred Kraemer, Julie LaPorte, Sandy Miles, Judy Nawrocki, Lee Oppenheimer, Madelyne Mellema, Mary Powell, Aggie Stuart-Ruster, Clare Woodard, and Kathy Ybarra. If you see any of them, wish them a HaPpY BiRthDaY. 

❄ Wednesday Morning will be your last opportunity to participate in our Christmas Drawing. Two winners will receive $50.00, donated by an Anonymous Donor. Proceeds from the drawing will support the people in Ukraine. Tickets can be purchased through the Young at Heart. Cost is $1.00 per ticket or 6 tickets for $5.00. 

⛄ If you have not completed our Annual Survey, please take a few minutes to do so. (See the attachment.)Your feedback is very helpful as we plan for 2023. Are you pleased with what we are currently offering? Would you like to see a specific class or an educational presentation? Would you like evening programming? Please complete the survey and email it back, or drop it off at the Parish Office. We greatly appreciate any feedback. 

❄ Lastly, attached is the January Calendar. As I take a lesson from Calvin College, YAH will have its normal programming, but we are taking a break from special presentations as we take the time to Live Stream three presentations from the Calvin College January Series. Avoid the crowd, and come watch it with your friends in the comfort of the cozy lounge at St. Alphonsus’ Parish Center. We will be live streaming the presentations on Monday, January 9th, 16th and 23rd at 12:30-1:30. Please RSVP to help us plan for space. 


Safe travels, healthy visits with family and friends, and celebrate ALL things good!
