Craft Night this Friday at 6:00 p.m.--Help needed!

The annual Fall Creek Family Craft Night is this Friday, December 11 at 6:00 p.m. in the school gym.  There will be many fun crafts to make and take, including some home made gifts for the holidays.  We hope to see you there!

Help is still needed to make the event run smoothly.  We need grownups or older siblings to help out at the craft tables.  Please let Sarah Cummings know if you are available srcummings@twcny.rr.com.  It is easy and fun (you don’t have to be crafty) and you can work at a table while your child is going around to other craft stations in the gym.  Thank you!
