Sue Varges, gift shop manager, and Christine Makinney, asst. gift shop manager, along with their team have done a beautiful job with the displays. Check out the new holiday items to pick up for hostesses, friends & family, or something for yourself. As a reminder, our Holiday Boutique will begin at 10:00 am on the December 5th Board Meeting day. 100% of the profits go directly back to the Woman's Board initiatives. Stop by soon!
