It's See's Candy Time!

Calling all Scouts. Calling all Chocolate lovers!, Calling all people that have to get their Aunt Tilly a gift! It's...SEE'S CANDY TIME!

That's right everyone, it's that time of year again. The boys can sign up with Sister Thomas to help staff the See's Candy store in Indio. Each hour that the boys work will earn them $10 towards Scout Camp. The store fired up this last weekend and will be open until Christmas Eve. Boys can sign up for Saturday hours and hours after school. Talk with Dave Thomas, or better yet call Kelly Thomas. Now go out there and buy, buy, buy!

Sacrament Bread for December

Congratulations to Alex VB, who is going to be our newest Teacher. Alex you will be in charge of the bread for the month of December. Teachers, remember to get there early (preferably around 10:45) to help set up the sacrament.
