Pathfinder Christmas Party, December 3, 4:30 PM

Pathfinders, you wanted to wear comfy clothes for your Christmas Party, so you can wear comfy clothes to the Pathfinder meeting and party.  The Pathfinder meeting will be at the normal time of 2:30 pm and will go to 4:30 pm.  At 4:30 pm we will start the Christmas Party.  
There will be pizza, drinks and games.  Come and have fun socializing with all of us.
Your ticket to get into the party is to bring pajamas, boys or girls, size (newborn to 5T) for the underprivileged.  We will be giving the pajamas to Mrs. Rosario Leichner to give to the families she works with.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
