December Service Project

Our December service project to benefit the Devereux Kanner Learning Center is underway!

Join us this Friday, December 6th from 12 noon to 2 p.m. for pizza and beverages, then make an ornament for a holiday wreath we will donate to Devereux.  RSVP for the event by filling out the bottom portion of the flyer, and return it by backpack to Tr. Patrice by Thursday, December 5.

We are also collecting donations through Monday, December 16th of new, never-worn and never-used items for Kanner Center residents. Devereux has requested the following items:

* Hats, Gloves, & Mittens (boys' large to adult medium, girls' large to adult medium) 
* Art Supplies (Preschool level) 

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you for our party Friday!
Goshen Parent Community

Dear Goshen families,

As we spent the recent holiday giving thanks, we would like to take a moment to remember Michele Kornegay. She brought so much light and life to the Goshen Community. The GPC could not be more thankful for all the help she gave us and the warm environment she helped to create for our children.  We will remember her fondly.

In Friendship,

Dana Kelly
GPC Clerk

In Other News

Our November service project was a great success! We collected 311 pounds of food for the Chester County Food Bank. Thanks to our Goshen Friends School community for your generous donations, and thanks to our students for helping to load the food for transport!

Our garden beds are empty now, but we look forward to the spring, when we begin raising vegetables for the Food Bank. It's just around the corner!
