THE NEXT MEETING - NOVEMBER 18, 2019
This meeting will be our Holiday Party which we celebrate every year by providing gifts for needy children given to them by Blue Santa, who along with Mrs Claus will be in attendance. We ask that you bring along a gift to put in Santa’s sack and we suggest that it not cost more than $10.00-$15.00. The main course for the Dinner will be catered and if the membership wants to bring along a desert to share with the others, it will be very welcomed. Entertainment will be provided by the members.
The meeting starts at 6:30 pm with a light meal. Members are encouraged to bring covered dishes and/or deserts. Hope to see you there.
Fall Fling/Holiday Party. This is our last meeting of the year. We resume meetings on January 20, 2020. Meeting details to follow.
