White Elephant Gift Exchange/Ugly Sweater Party/Potluck!

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Colleen's Place

Get excited for the white elephant gift exchange party! If you would like to join in but do not like the pressure of bringing a gift, feel free to join in the drinking and eating and watch the hilarity. 

Also of importance, there will also be a tacky Christmas sweater contest! The sweater will be chosen by the co-hosts (Colleen and myself) and by group consensus. 

As for the gifts, the best gifts are usually things that people have been given that they want to get rid of (like a chip n' dip with really tacky decorations or terrible smelling candles) or something hilarious and awkward (but nothing too inappropriate-cater to the audience). The gift, if you are planning on purchasing something, should be between $5-$20 (please do not go over!! No show offs here). Also important, if you have not paid your membership dues, please bring it then so Corrine doesn't go bankrupt..

If everyone could, reply in the comment section with what food/drink item you are bringing (only 1 necessary). 

Snacking type foods, holiday drinks, and collaborations (like mulled wine made by two people sort of thing) are encouraged. 

Get PUMPED!!

    Hey guys so sorry but I have to stay home tonight with the puppy. He had his shots today and is feeling a tad under the weather. I'll definitely be at the next meeting, though!

    Unfortunately, I am sick also. I was looking forward to it and had a great gift. Guess I'll have to save it for next year.

      Hi Colleen- I haven't responded yet with what I will bring- do you still need someone to bring rum? Anything else you need?

    Yo peeps! I'm probably going to show up. If I come, I'll bring Brussels sprouts (the sexy kind...not the healthy kind), probably some form of booze, and a couple pieces of crap from my last white elephant party to pawn of on you guys.

    Hi all! I'm so excited for our party saturday. It will be at my house, and here's the address

    1108 Avon Street, cville 22902

    it's right on elliott and avon, on the sw corner. You need to park on elliott, alta vista, or in the gravel ally way between those two streets. If you're coming on Elliott heading west, take the first right into the gravel driveway, and my house is the 3rd on the right. You can see my house from avon, but there's only parking in the back.

    My number is[masked] and you can call me with any questions. (Tori, can you put this up on the location part of the event, so everyone sees it?)

    It's BYOB... but I got the egg nog!

    Also, I have some snacks (tortilla chips, salsa, cookies), but if you're bringing anything for the potluck (to answer Antonya's question) just write it in the comments section.

    Cheers! And see you tomorrow!

    Hi everyone! I joined a few months ago with the intentions of getting involved but it was around the time I was planning a wedding and now that the wedding has finally passed, I would like to spend time getting to know people in the area! My husband and I moved to Lake Monticello in July. I am a third grade teacher and he is still working in Richmond. This event sounds fun and I just wanted to see if we would be able to come! If any one would like to do a double date before then so we know some familiar faces, just message me! Thanks and I look forward to meeting you all!

      Hi Kelly! Looking forward to meeting you and your husband. I love the Lake Monticello area myself, albeit mostly in the summer. Hoping you two can make it to the party!

    Hi all! I'm looking forward to meeting some new people in the area. I'm actually in Farmville but love to get out of this town as often as possible (if you've ever been to Farmville, I'm sure you understand!) I teach English at Longwood. Originally from the UK but moved to the states about 4 years ago. You have a fine country, I must say!

    Hey guys! This event will be held at my house, in Belmont. I plan to list my address closer to the event, so it's not floating in the internets for longer than it needs to. Can't wait!

      Tori can send it as an email to all the RSVP attendees if you don't want it floating around the internet/Meetup website.
