On Sunday, January 6, the Dining for Dollars host sign-up table opens, if you have not entered your event online and prefer to do it in person. Please come and see Emily and Cheryl in Forbes Hall following each service in January. Stop by, even if it’s just to chat or ask for clarification or assistance. Remember that D4$ success depends on your participation!
