     Our movie night is still this Friday starting at 6:00 (the doors will open at 5:30).  How the Grinch Stole Christmas will start playing right at 6:00 and The Muppets Christmas Carol will begin immediately after that.  We are in need of volunteers!  I'll be sending home a sheet on Monday asking for help.  The cost is still $3.00 per person, $10.00 per family.  All concessions will still be just $1.00.  The more people who come on out, the cheaper our trip to Washington, D.C. will be!  Our goal is still $1000.
