Ten members of the Big Cedar Homemakers met Oct. 12 at the Big Cedar Schoolhouse to start planning for their annual Christmas swag sale. Before starting their meeting, members wired 600 plus Ponderosa Pine cones. It was decided the deadline for all swag orders would be Nov. 5, and the new price would be $15 each. Madelon Gribble volunteered to take orders and can be reached at 926-4709. On Nov. 7, members will gather the greenery and on Nov. 9 the swags will be assembled and cones wired on. Application of bows and delivery will occur Monday, Nov. 21. Once again this year, the proceeds of the sale will be divided between the Tahoe Quick Response Unit and the Ridge Runners Fire Department.
