Houses Decorated for Christmas!

Many wonderful volunteers have brought Christmas to Angel Reach! They provided trees, lights, and other decorations to each of our houses. In addition to providing the decorations, they also decorated the trees with some of the residents! We offer a big THANK YOU to Amy Taylor and Allison Kleinpeter Of NCL, Taylor Brown, Krissy Little, Kathryn Driskill, Billie Pomarzynski, and Brenda Oneal. Drop by and see how lovely our houses look with the Christmas Spirit everywhere!

Mentor Mentee Christmas Party
On Saturday, December 16, mentors and mentees joined together at TWUMC to celebrate Christmas with a BBQ lunch, games, and of course, presents. One of the games was a white elephant exchange with each person holding a wrapped gift. The game involved passing the gifts while listening to "The Night Before Christmas". Everyone enjoyed the fellowship! Thanks to Jenny Lee and others for their hard work in putting this important event together.
