🏆   V H S Annual Awards will be presented at the December 6th Potluck Meeting .. have you submitted your suggestion for the Whiteoak Award or the Unsung Hero recognition ?  



💪    Hard to believe!  December is creeping up on us with the Annual VHS Potluck Meeting to look forward to!  Great food, great speaker, great company!   A bit of help is needed in the following ways:

1.   Setting up the room and orienting members when they bring in their food items.  No table set up, just getting out cloths, creating table arrangements and assisting members.

2. Donations of flower arrangements and greenery.  If you’re doing a bit of trimming in late November of greens and holly that would be suitable table arrangements save a few branches for us.

If you are able to help with either of these please contact Gail Miller at or sign-up at the meeting this Tuesday night.
