We don't have a regular meeting in December as that is the time of year we get together in a purely social setting to talk with our fellow club members, perhaps exchange an ornament, share a meal, and raise funds for the Pete Holtus Educational Opportunity Grant through an auction.
The club will provide main course including roast turkey, ham, mashed potatoes with gravy, home-made cranberry relish, and rolls. Soft drinks, coffee, and teas will be provided.
Please feel free to bring side dishes, appetizers, and lots of desserts.
Help is needed for all phases of the party (before, during, and after) but especially for clean up after. If you are able to help, please contact Bear Limvere for more information.
We will also be having our 5th Annual Christmas Ornament Exchange so don’t forget to bring in your ornament(s). There is no limit as to how many you may bring in and swap.
Fund raising auction for the Pete Holtus Educational Opportunity Grant. Contribute by donating piece(s) or other items for the auction and/or by making charitable purchases. We will be having the professional auctioneers of Dickensheet running the auction!
