Thank you to everyone who helped with this year’s Children’s Christmas Bazaar at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church. Many people in our community made donations of new or like new items, wrapping supplies and provided treats for the parents and volunteers. Los Alamos Middle School and Los Alamos High School students representing National Honor Society, NJROTC, Key Club, Los Alamos Hilltalkers, Friends of Rachel and Natural Helpers were instrumental in set up, assisting shoppers and wrapping gifts. And many, many members of our community and Trinity on the Hill’s parish helped with greeting, setup, wrapping, hospitality and cleanup to make it a special day for over 300 children. Approximately 2,000 gifts were purchased and wrapped in three hours, all in our generous community.

I would especially like to thank team members who took the lead in heading up various areas of the bazaar; Julie Bulthuis, Mandie Gehrig, Karen Humphrey, Michelle Carr, Judy Crocker, Jean Johnson, Keith Stephens, Alison Bailey, Alina Bulthuis, Isabella Bailey, Genevieve Triplett, Sydney Favorite, Cathy Walters and Nancy Coombs. Wish them a Merry Christmas when you see them!

Our hope is that the children experienced empowerment by making independent choices and potentially learn the gift of giving and sharing that continues throughout their lives at this community event. The children’s excitement at this event is contagious!

From Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church we wish you and your family a blessed Christmas. We are a Christian community of faith, welcoming everyone.

Merry Christmas,
Beth Pattillo
