Welcome to our Annual Holiday Party!
This year we are going to have a pot luck. We have so many wonderful cooks and people with creative ideas for pot luck, we decided this was worth a try!!
We have rented the Island Lake Community Center just north of Silverdale. The building has the capacity for 100 people and has a full kitchen with all amenities. You can check it out by going to:
Directions: From Silverdale Way NW: Take the Bennington Drive NW exit. There will be a Chevron Station on one corner of the street. Follow this road to the Community Center. Bennington Drive is the most direct route to take.
Are you ready for some fun!!!?? We will do a “White Elephant gift exchange”.. Please bring a “tasteful” gift that can be used by anyone. Wrapped nicely … this can be a re-gift, something you no longer want, something nice, something silly …. HAVE FUN WITH THIS!
We will hand out numbers beginning with 1 to however many bring gifts . The first one starts the game by picking a gift and opening it, number 2 will pick a new gift or the previous one picked. We do this until all gifts are open, the first person ends the game by trading his/her gift or opting to keep it .
This year we are collecting food to help fill the Kitsap helpline food bank. Anything non perishable is welcome ~ boxed dinners, can goods, cereal, peanut butter… anything helps ….. Please do not donate expired items from your cupboards!!
As a reminder this is what to bring and info:
Party Starts at 1:30 pm (we will set up at 1:00 if you want to help, please come then!)
