COTTONWOOD -- An Advent concert, “Joy of Christmas,” by Jaime Thietten, will be held at St. Mary’s Church on Friday, Dec. 6, at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy this wonderful music!
The nativity play at St. John Bosco will be Wednesday, Dec. 11, at the school gym starting at 7 p.m. “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” was written by David and Erin Wassmuth and Makayla Rose, who are all high school students at the Academy. Come and enjoy this production to get you into the Christmas spirit.
St. Mary’s Hospital and Clinics is sponsoring the “Angel Tree” again this year. Numbered tags will be put on the tree with the children’s wishes. Take a tag, shop for the child, and return the unwrapped gift by December 16th. In conjunction with the Cottonwood Food Bank, SMH volunteers will prepare food baskets for “Angel Tree” families as well as elderly residents in the community. Requests for food baskets should be directed to Donna Quick at 208-962-3251.
