Here in Spain they call a long weekend a “puente” (bridge). This year the week of Dec. 5th-9th is so crazy that the “bridge” becomes an “aqueduct” as it leapfrogs over two holidays plunked right in the middle of the week (Tuesday, Dec. 6th and Thursday, Dec. 8th). Nonetheless, the faithful Bring and Buy Team will be at the Club on Wednesday afternoon (Dec. 7th) and all day on Thursday and Friday, (Dec. 8th and 9th) setting up for our Monday, Dec. 12th Sale. We will need your help and donations! Take advantage if you have the day off to come in and contribute your time to a worthy cause. We’re also very short on handbags and toys. Any toys left over from our December Sale will be donated to local parishes and NGOs so that all the neighborhood kids have a toy for Christmas. So plan on helping out or donating if you´re around during the Aqueduct Week. The Club will be open for helping out or leaving donations every day except for Tuesday (December 6th). If you have any questions, ring the Club at 91-457 1108 or post your questions on our
