Goldonna News 11-9

The Christmas Season is right around the corner and the Goldonna Baptist Youth group is not sitting idle while your presents go unwrapped! They going to host a holly jolly gift wrapping fundraiser. There are currently two days scheduled and they can possibly add another if the business is bustling. December 4th will be in honor of the early bird shoppers. December 18th will be in honor of the normal people who shop later in the month.

It will be held at the Goldonna Baptist Church. People can either drop their gifts off or wait there while they are wrapped with care. Prices will start at $2 and they will have several different kinds of wrapping paper, ribbons, tags and bows. The wrapping party is slated to begin at 10:00am and will last until at least 6pm, unless the elves run out of gifts and supplies sooner. If you would like your gifts people wrapped on a different day they can either call Victoria Walker at 318-200-4495.

These elves are very accommodating and want your business!

The elves will also be selling candy apples, led foam batons, cookies and face painting at Christmas in the Park.

Be on the lookout this winter for more exciting fundraisers!
