In place of our December meeting, come celebrate Festivus with us! Join us for a lot of fun around the Festivus Pole, along with the traditional Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength.
We will be holding our 2nd annual food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Last year we donated over 190 pounds of food, and this year we'd like to double that!*
Finger food and non-alcoholic beverages will be on hand. If you'd like to supplement our goodies with a side dish or goodie of your own (dessert or something else), please do, but this is not a requirement for attending! However, if you wish to imbibe, please Bring Your Own Libation. We'll provide the ice, bottle openers and cups!
*If you cannot attend but still would like to donate food to the food bank, you can drop it off at Carissa's house any time before the party. Just knock! (Or leave it on the front porch, if we're not home).
Trick will be defending his Thumb Wrestling crown!
