The good folks at the Waldport Assembly of God Church apparently believe that the best way to get Santa Claus to cooperate on Christmas is to hit’im up early. So that’s what they’re doing down there at Cedar and Huckleberry, in northeast Waldport.
They call it Operation Christmas, and it’s an annual effort with them. They’re holding a biiiig spaghetti feed as part of the program on Saturday, September 26th starting at 6pm. Six dollars per person, $20 for a family (up to five people) – it includes spaghetti, garden cole slaw, garlic bread and a beverage.
Then, there’s the silent auction. All kinds of fun things to bid on.
After the fundraiser ends, those leading the program will launch into their “Operation Christmas” mode by using the funds raised to purchase things that children need – education supplies, shoes, socks and other necessities. Then the gifts will be shipped overseas to needy children in third-world countries.
For more information on Operation Christmas, including if you’d like to donate something for the silent auction, call James Wyant at 541-270-0816.
