The Ladies’ Auxiliary is having their annual Christmas get-together at Osaka Grill in the Crofton Shopping Center, 1665 Crofton Center, Crofton, Maryland on Route 3. If you’d like to join us on Monday, 1 December at 6:30 pm please sign up on the Christmas Dinner sheet located on the bulletin board at the bottom of the sanctuary steps.
Everyone will pay for their own meal, Adults $10.99, Seniors $9.44, Children 6-10 years $6.50 and Children 3-6 years $4.59. The Osaka Grill is an all-you-can-eat experience located near the K-Mart and Dollar Store in the shopping center. They serve Japanese/Chinese/American cuisine. Ask to join the First Lutheran group when you get there. Please leave your own tip. You don’t have to be an auxiliary member to come, just join us and enjoy the fellowship.
Ladies who have a secret pal are encouraged to bring their Christmas gift to the dinner as it’s the time for your secret pal to be revealed. You must give thought as to whether you want to enroll for a secret pal for the upcoming year. See Secret Pal article in the News Section.
Every year at the auxiliary Christmas Dinner (December 1 this year), ladies who wish to participate draw names for a “secret pal”. All through the year the secret pals are requested to remember the person whose name they drew with little gifts anonymously. Gifts are usually left in the narthex near the sink. The gifts could be for a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s day, Easter, get well, thinking of you, etc. This year we will again offer the “Secret Pal” program for those who wish to participate. If you have questions, please contact Linda Vitchock, 410-987-1043 or firstname.lastname@example.org who has generously agreed to handle the program again this year.
