Chairpersons Jan Stover and Carolyn Heinrichs have had their committees scurrying around like busy bees, fine-tuning details and creating items for the annual Christmas House that returns to St. Augustine Catholic Church in Napoleon this weekend.

As in the past, this annual event will feature displayed Christmas trees and glitzy holiday gift items to purchase to make decorating for the 2019 Christmas season extra special.

A cluster of parish ladies have also been working on a beautiful handmade quilt, entitled “Falling Leaf,” which will be raffled off at the conclusion of the weekend, along with additional prizes.

Special offerings include frosted sugar cookies (made fresh daily), secret-recipe cheese balls and a special visit from Santa.

Friday’’s activities commence at 9:30 a.m. and will wrap up at 8 p.m. Homemade soup and sandwiches will be available for lunch and dinner. Supper with Santa will be from 5-7 p.m.

Saturday’s hours are the same as Friday and a baked steak dinner will be offered from 5-7 p.m. Soup and sandwiches are again offered that day.

Breakfast will be served Sunday from 9-noon and everything wraps up at 2 p.m.
