This is a Fundraiser for Animal Shelters: Bring a $5. bill for the jar.
Julia’s house is so unique, and the pot-luck spread is the best ever. You will love the cozy conversation by the fire-pits, and the friendly people you will meet. This party is with several Meetups and groups, not only for our ‘Just for Fun’ group. Bring your favorite holiday CDs too.
POT-LUCK: Julia asks - Please bring a "quality" potluck dish and BYOB. "Quality" means no packaged cookies, and no grocery store-bought desserts (TJ & Costco OK). Please no veggie trays, they remain untouched. Kudos to those who bring a main dish. Crockpot plug-ins and BBQ grills will be available. If you are "potluck challenged" you can e-mail Julia, [masked] for suggestions of no-cook party items to bring, instead of food.
DRESS WARMLY: Assuming no rain, the party will be held outdoors in the backyard! There will be several fire-pits for warmth, and a propane heater. Be prepared! Dress in layers, as the temps will drop later in the night. Yes, gloves, scarves, hats, down jacket!
$5 COVER CHARGE: (unemployed need not pay) is donated to local no-kill (501(c)(3) animal shelters, who rely on public donations. So, please be your usual honorable self and bring a $5 bill for the collection jar at the entrance.
DRINKS: This is a BYOB, even water. Beer and wine is OK, but we expect folks to drink responsibly, and not drive home if they are impaired. You can sleep at the house if you feel unable to drive.
