A portion of event proceeds benefit the Foster Parent Association of WA. Free to attend. Sat, Dec. 16 from 10:30 am-4 pm.

Blue Christmas Service

The holidays are not always happy times and this service, while not a "sad" one, acknowledges that not everyone is in the holiday spirit this time of year, and those people may need some uplifting and community to help them through what can be a difficult time of year. No cost. Thu, Dec. 21 at 6 pm. Bethany Presbyterian Church, 2607 S. Ray St. (534-0066) ♦
