The Wagoner Caroling Party has outgrown the Wagoner home!  That’s a good thing!  Come join us on Friday, December 19th, at 6 pm, in the All-Purpose Room of Grace Church.  We will enjoy good food, fellowship and fun … oh, and caroling and hot chocolate too!  A sign-up sheet is at the Welcome Center so Tami can plan on just the right amount of good eats for our carolers.
