NOVEMBER & DECEMBER OUTREACH AT ANNUNCIATION
POLICE AND FIRE STATION “THANK YOU” BASKETS – THANKSGIVING EVE
Did you know that Lewisville, Flower Mound and Highland Village now have SIXTEEN Fire and Police Stations? Annunciation is bringing back a tradition that started over twenty five years ago, when these three towns were smaller in population but still serviced by loyal police officers and firemen. Our tradition has been to invite church members to bring baked goods and edible treats to be divided between baskets labeled for each Fire and Police Station in Lewisville, Flower Mound and Highland Village. Families attending the Thanksgiving Eve Holy Eucharist at 7:00pm can choose a basket to deliver on their way home. We will be gathering all of the items & baskets together at a large common table beside the altar for a special blessing. After the service, we’ll hand out the sixteen baskets for delivery. Here’s how you can say “THANK YOU” to our hardworking officers and firemen this 2014 holiday season:
ITEMS REQUESTED FOR THANK YOU BASKETS
Cutie Oranges, Red or Green Apples
Cans or sealed packages of peanuts or mixed nuts
Home-baked cookies sealed & labeled in Ziploc bags
Pies or Cakes sealed and labeled in disposable tins
Hard Candy or packages of gum individually wrapped
Granola or energy bars individually wrapped
Handwritten notes saying “Thank You” from you and your family
Cough Drops & Boxes of Assorted Tea
WHEN DO ITEMS NEED TO BE BROUGHT TO THE CHURCH?
You can begin bringing any canned or pre-packaged item to the Welcome Center starting Sunday, November 23. The church will also be open the Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday of Thanksgiving week. All baked goods need to be brought to the church either Tuesday or Wednesday (Thanksgiving Eve).
HOW DO I SIGN UP TO TAKE A BASKET AFTER THE THANKSGIVING EVE SERVICE?
There are no sign ups before the service. If you are attending the Thanksgiving Eve Holy Eucharist at 7:00pm, simply stay after the service and we’ll be handing out the
baskets with the addresses on them and they’ll be ready to deliver!
