Mark your calendars - The American Red Cross Blood Drive is coming up!  It’s happening on December 15th, at the Wilton Community Center, from 7:00-11:30 a.m.  Please help spread the love this Holiday Season and come out to donate blood!  At this drive, for every pint of blood that is donated, the American Red Cross will donate $10.00 into a Scholarship fund that will be awarded to a Brookwood student at the end of the year.  So not only will you be helping people in need of blood transfusions all across America, you will also be helping a local student achieve their goals of pursuing higher education!  Thank you in advance ~Miss Hart~ 


The Community Christmas Choir will be having a concert on Sunday, December 16th, at 4:00 p.m. at the Wilton Community Center. The Community Choir is directed by Debbie Anderson & accompanied by Nalani Bever with solos by local individuals.  There will be money donation buckets set out to collect donations that will be given to our local food pantries (Wilton, Ontario, and N-O-W School District).  Last year’s concert raised enough money to give over $160.00 to each food pantry!  A big “THANK YOU” to our community for making that possible.  There will be sweet treats and fellowship with friends during the intermission.  Hope to see you all there!  Any questions, please contact Deb Anderson @ (608) 633-2116.
