Sadly, the East Monkton Church Association has decided not to hold the annual “Celebration of Christmas” due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This was their largest fundraiser in the past and its cancellation will be a significant loss in meeting their yearly expenses. In hoping to defray those expenses, the Association will be selling holiday note cards in the coming weeks. Each card will feature a photograph taken of a past “Celebration of Christmas.” The designs will have one of four photos including the front of the church in early evening before the event, the front doors of the church decorated with greenery swag on the railing, a nativity scene displayed in the church entry and a candle in the window. More details about the holiday note cards will follow in the next few weeks.
