Holiday Baskets for Families update: Thanks to Nicole, Torie and Joyce we have a plan to work on the Holiday Baskets for next month...Nicole spoke to Barry at Holiday Market, apparently the WOW point system hit a snag and it won't be up and running until December..Since we do have enough points to secure a modified food distribution to the 30 families selected from the Penn Valley School District, we're ok for this year..the food has been ordered and staff at the school district will  pick it up and package the bags at their offices...then a distribution drive thru will take place on Wednesday, December 16 before winter break...However, we will need folks to work the tables in December so we can collect WOW points for next year and for special projects with the schools like Science for sign up sheets...
