Holiday Shoppe
FTC is going to have the Holiday Shoppe again this year from Dec. 12-16. At this event the children got to pick out reasonably-priced gifts for family members and friends. It is held at the schools during school hours so the gifts can be a surprise for family members. More information about the sale will be sent after Thanksgiving break.

We need volunteers to help make the Holiday Shoppe a success. We are looking for people to volunteer for 2 hour shifts. Please see flyer for details, and contact Kate Beckwith ( if interested. This is a great way to see the kids having fun and help spread some holiday cheer!

This year we are adding handmade items to the sale. If you are interested in contributing items that would be sold for $.25-$10 please contact Julie Tobias (  or review the flyer for further details.
