Alpine Cleaning and Restoration - Be careful of ice dams! With rain and melting snow, check for water.

Larry’s Pharmacy - Still have flu shots, including high dose shots for 65 and over.

Sky View High School - Happy to host Night of Giving. Love the cause and all the help given to local kids.

Night of Giving Recap

Things went really smoothly this year. We liked the chairs that we used from Gladfelder’s and will use again next year. Thanks to Kim Tippetts for vetting and organizing all the names that we buy for. Thanks to Schreiber for all the cheese and giveaways. The Smithfield YSA ward will be wrapping on Monday evening at the church behind McDonalds on Monday night from 6-8 pm. Thanks to Lee’s for a great job with the food.

We had our biggest year! We raised $30,472. Right now we have $14,000 in cash out to buy for families - that number will go up! Please contact your families ASAP so we can be sure to get them taken care of before Christmas.

2020 Memberships

Memberships will be due in January. We will send out information and Terri will invoice.
