St. Michael’s will hold their Christmas pageant December 1 – 3. Before, during, and after the pageant, the women of St. Michaels will hold a bake sale. With all of us working together, the bake sale will be a huge success! (And although this is the “women”s” bake sale, men are welcome and encouraged to volunteer and donate!)
Many hands make light work!!
