Annual FSC Re-Gift Party & Potluck

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

re.gift

verb \re-gift\

: to give someone a gift that was previously received from someone else

Please join members of the Fairlington Social Club for our annual re-gift party & potluck dinner on Friday January 11, 2013 at the Fairlington Community Center located at 3308 South Stafford Street Arlington, VA 22206 at 7:00 PM.

If you exchanged gifts this Christmas season it's likely that you received a gift that is just ... well, ... um, ... not very useful.

Or maybe it's useful, but you already have one or two of them.

Or maybe you don't like the person that gave it to you so you can't stand the thought of keeping the gift.

Instead of trashing it, instead of letting it sit in your closet, ... bring it to the Annual FSC Re-Gift Party.

It could be hand soap, a book, a clock radio, a chia pet, a bird feeder, a snorkel kit, a desk calendar, ... whatever. But, here are some simple guidelines:

  • Your gift should not be perishable/baked goods.
  • Do NOT buy an item for this exchange.
  • Not necessary to be gender neutral.
  • Be prepared to tell the story behind the gift. Hopefully it's a good one!
  • Minimal wrapping is good - we don't care if it's in a bag as long as it's concealed.

We'll do potluck drinks & light snacks, draw numbers from a hat to choose the order of gift-picking, and then re-gift.

Park on the street or in the community center lot.

Enter main entrance, turn left and go down the hall to room 134

Please let us know in your RSVP if you can bring a food/drink to contribute to the potluck...

    I rated the Meetup four stars, but only because I don't give anything five. LOL! Plus, I got a gift I actually like and can and will use.

    I thought it was a lot of fun! Being a newcomer to the group, I found everyone to be very friendly and appreciated the introduction at the beginning. Eileen, it was very sweet of you to give me the egg and I thank you! :)

    Wednesday morning...

    Please update your RSVP for our Re-Gift Party & Potluck this Friday night at the Fairlington Community Center to indicate if you are bringing any food or beverages.

    In addition to re-gifting, we plan to have light snacks. In the past members have brought such things as soft drinks, brownies, chips & dip, etc..

    Arlington County prohibits alcohol on county property so some folks plan to head down to Shirlington Village at 9:00 PM to quaff when our party ends.
