Annual Holiday Party

Members are welcome to stay later than 7:30pm.

The Niche Wine Bar has an extensive selection of wine and beer in addition to coffee, teas and soft drinks.  The owner expects to have a menu of meats and cheeses, pastries and other snack items by the time of our party.  If this menu is not in place by 12/16, we will convert the party into a potluck.  So, keep those 15-minute recipes ready.

We have to include some writing content in this end-of-the-year celebration.  So, please come prepared to do the following:

1.  share any resources/best practices that you have gleaned over the course of our time together this year.

2.  Bring a piece of holiday-related writing to share (original or a favorite short piece from another writer).

We are looking forward to partying in good spirit with good spirits.

    The party was great! A special thank you to Hugh Willard and Katy Gailles for setting up the feast. Also, thanks to the Holly Aprings Arts Council for providing reimbursement for our food. Merry Christmas to all!

    Hi Catherine,
    If you can't get your preferences for the critique sessions through on the website, please send them along to me at [masked]. I hope to see you on the 18th!

      online survey is having trouble with the ranking! The first choice MUST be #1 and the 2nd choice #2. etc.

      Hi, Susan! I'm sorry the online survey is giving you trouble. When I took the survey, on my computer each number beside each choice was a dropdown tab, and you could click it and change that number to a different number, one at a time. So I went in and, say, changed number three to number one... and continued rearranging like that. Could you give it a try again and see if those dropdown tabs work? If it doesn't work, it is probably something wrong I did on my end in setting up the survey. So if the survey fails, please email Hugh at the address listed above with your preferences. Either way, we want to hear your choice. Hope to see you at the holiday party! :D

    Not about the holiday party, but did not know where to post...

    What is the best way to return our rank-ordered preferences for meeting times, as per Katie's email request to do so? I was unable to determine how/where to reply with my preferences as the 'reply' function of that email went to an unattended meetup mailbox that brought a delivery failure message. Thanks!

      Brenda, the group decided to hold the party at a local restaurant this year so that no one has to cook or bring food. All we have to do is party. :-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
