Blue Christmas, December 19th

There are years when we hurt at Christmas time, when we are alone and ‘feeling blue’ in the  midst of a society around us which seems bent on ‘being happy’ and ‘celebrating’.  We, at FUFON, want you to know that you are not alone!  Come and join us on Saturday, December 19th at 7:00pm at our Hall.  We will gather to share, remember and reflect – or simply being ‘not alone’.
