 – Tuesday, December 13th from 11:30 till 1:30 –

It’s our first ever Open Invitation Live Animal Nativity Holiday Potluck, which is a mouth full – and may need some explaining.

Open Invitation – This means absolutely everyone is welcome!  Staff, kids, family, volunteers – anyone!  If you can make it and want to bring your mom, do it! If you’d like your kids to stop in and see the animals, great!

Live Animal Nativity – Since we happen to have a donkey, sheep, and a mini horse, they will be on hand in front of the SSB to receive your adoration.  They don’t mind photos and fanfare and add a special touch to any occasion!

Potluck – So, if you are coming to eat, it would be great if you brought something to share. Here’s a link to Signupgenius so you can see what others are already planning to bring (we can only eat so much mac and cheese) and so you can let us know beforehand what you might bring along!

We sincerely hope you’ll join us!
