Following the program in the church, we'll transition to the fellowship hall to continue our meeting and have refreshments. As a reminder, we are accepting donations for the Domestic Violence Service Center. A list of items is available in your annual Courier newsletter.

Mary Smida is once again looking for your bake sale donations for Palmerton's annual Christmas in the Park festivities on Saturday, December 1st.  Our club has become known for the tempting assortment of treats that we offer for sale. We can generally use some help and a few tables to display our wares. Come and join us- we have a great time with lots of laughs. Baked goods should be dropped off at the Palmerton park from 10:30-11:30am. Also, Mary is looking for a few tables. Please contact her if you are able to help. Thanks for your generous support! Also, Vinita Horinko will be selling some of the snowman crafts that were made by club members as part of this year's Meals on Wheels craft. They are available for $7 each.

We're excited to once again bring our Holiday House Tours to the Palmerton area community! This year, we're trying something different- the tour will be Friday night, November 30th from 5-8pm. Preview night for guides is Thursday, November 29th beginning at 5pm at Teri Delich's home. Tickets for the Holiday House Tours ($10 each) are on sale at the Palmerton Library, First Northern Bank, and the Palmerton Heritage Center. On November 30th, tickets will be on sale after 4:30pm at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (5th & Lafayette).


Calling all members! We need you to be part of our January Talent Show and our March Fashion Show!  We're looking for acts to showcase their talent - anything goes! Whether you sing, play an instrument, recite poetry, want to display and tell us about your crafts, we're want to know about it!  Please consider signing up- at this point, we only have one act!

Also, we're looking for 2 more volunteers to serve as models for our Fashion Show. All shapes and sizes are welcome! Now's your chance to strut your stuff! We've made arrangements with Boscov's where you'll get to pick your own outfits. If you like, you may purchase any pieces that you model at a discount as a perk. We're trying something new to register: sign up online for the Talent and/or Fashion Show at  If online signups aren't your thing, contact Lisa Snell Kern as soon as possible. There are a limited number of spots, so don't delay!

The club continues to collect Boxtops, which we contribute to the Palmerton Area Junior High to fund field trips for students who have financial difficulty and would otherwise not attend. Please give your boxtops to Lisa Snell Kern.
