    You can choose to have them every month for six months … every other month for 12 months … and you can even combine multiple batches for a big party, as suits your needs.  I’ll bring them to church most any Sunday morning or Thursday evening.  Just call – a few days’ notice is sufficient, and barring a conflict, I can get them to you pretty quickly.
