Come out and help us clean Brackenville Road, our Adopt-A-Highway fall activity coinciding with this statewide event.

Dear Countryside members,

Listed below are some of the items needed for our Christmas stocking project for Friendship House. If you have other suggestions or ideas about items to be included please let us know. Also gift cards from Walgreens were suggested because there is a Walgreens within walking distance to Friendship House. Gift Cards in amounts of $15.00 or less will also be included in the stockings.

If you have old Christmas stocking that you no longer use or want and they look good please bring them, nothing too big. New Christmas stockings would also be appreciated.

We hope to start collecting items at our October 16th meeting.

Some suggestions for full size items for Christmas stockings:

Toothpaste, tooth brushes, dental floss, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, razors, shaving cream, talcum powder, bath soap, bath gel, hair spray, hand cream, body lotion, lip balm, Q-tips and gift cards from Walgreens.

Thank you, Joanie
