December Meet - Holiday/Christmas Get-together

  • December 5, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • Peter Gregory's home

For December we will have a Holiday/Christmas get-together instead of a regular monthly meeting.  As last year, we'll meet at Peter Gregory's home (THANK YOU, Peter!).  Please bring a snack, drink, or a dish to share.  Fancy or simple is fine with us.  Please post a comment if you know what you'll bring, so Peter will know what to plan for.

We also will do a "Dirty Santa" gift swap for all who wish to join in.  Bring a gift to swap.  No need to be extravagant.  New or used is fine.  We mostly stick roughly to the $10 to $25 range.  The gift theme is backpacking, hiking, camping.

It'll be a fun evening!

    I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the party tomorrow!
    I'll have a sign up beside my mailbox that says:
    BACKPACK PARTY in big letters.
    I only have 1 driveway beside my mailbox - people are welcome to park in it if there is room. Otherwise, find a spot on the street near the house.
    See you soon!
