06 Nov Christmas Party for our Mexican neighbors
The Christmas Party for our Mexican neighbors who live in Cholla will be held on Dec. 8th at the clubhouse in Cholla. We have the toys for the children, but I could use some help with the food boxes.
So far we have 34 families. The meat will be purchased in Rocky Point this year, but I need to have the following things for the boxes: Peanut butter, jam and boxes of macaroni and cheese. I am not giving rice and beans, they can buy these, but I would like to give each family a special item, such as loaf of nut bread, or the like, or a package of those chocolate goodies they sell at Costco. Hopefully, I can also get some fruit??? If you have good oranges this early, it would be great if you would bring them down to give!
If you would be willing to bring any of these things down, please email me and let me know what you will bring. If you bring something this next weekend, give me a call in Cholla at 382 5036 and I will pick it up or you can bring it to the clubhouse, I will be there Sat. afternoon and evening, or to my house.
Of course we can always use money. Please mail checks made out to Cholla Bay Christmas fund to Nancy Schmidli, 10645 W. Connecticut Ave., Sun City, Az, 85351 or P.O. Box 218, Lukeville, Az. 85341.
This is the one event that we do with our Mexican neighbors, so I hope many of you will help with this party. (Some already have, Thanks!) We take the kids picture with Santa and print them out for them to put in frames made by Linda Eger, serve hot dogs and chips, they choose a gift to give to their mother, and break piÃ±atas. It really is a fun time, so I some of you will come to the party. You’ll be glad you did!
