Goodwill Inn Dinner

ANNUAL GOODWILL INN DINNER

Our tradition continues with the congregation providing Christmas dinner to the residents of the Goodwill Inn. Please contact Terry Tarnow and let her know what you would like to make. Home cooked food is always appreciated but store bought or monetary donations will also be accepted. For those of you who may be out of town during the holiday we use the donations to buy some of the food served at the meal. Please meet at Beth El at 4:30 pm on Christmas Eve, Monday, Dec. 24, to drop off your food or join the group to deliver. NEW THIS YEAR we have been asked to help serve the meal on Christmas Day. I already have enough volunteers to provide this service. Since the food is not served until Christmas Day you have the option of dropping off your donation on Monday or Tuesday before 3:30 pm.

Join us for our annual Christmas Eve Jewish Tradition of going out for Chinese food. After delivering the food to the Goodwill Inn we will go as a group to Asian Buffet located next to Big Lots on S. Airport Rd.

PLEASE contact Terry Tarnow and let her know what you will donate and if you will join the group for dinner. Thank you for your support.
