CHRISTMAS SOCIAL POTLUCK - Food, Fun, Photo Swap, and Members Slide Show
Our traditional CHRISTMAS SOCIAL POTLUCK meal and will be held on Wednesday, Dec 7th @ 6:30 pm til 9:00 pm.
As is our practice, the Nov & Dec meetings are combined for the CHRISTMAS SOCIAL POTLUCK and will NOT be held on the regular fourth Wednesday of the month! This has worked well for everyone with all the family activities and travel that come with the holidays.
We will have a short review of the past year, a look at plans for 2022, the members photo swap, member's slide show and the wonderful company of other members as well as some good food.
Everyone plan to attend; it should be fun and a way to get together again.
PLEASE be sure to RSVP if you plan to attend so we can really plan with an idea of how many will be attending.
This is a Potluck meal, so please bring your favorite holiday food, treats or just good finger food such as mini sandwiches, sweet stuff, deli plate, chips & dip, or even healthy veggies & dip. Please let Mikki Dillon, Secretary and Stewart Woodard, Chapter Coordinator know what you plan to bring. Hopefully it will be a good variety and not all the same chips & dip or all deserts. We'll try and help ensuring a good variety.
As in the past, the Chapter will provide cups, plates, utensils, napkins, drinks, and ice.
New this year, we will have a Member's Photo SWAP. Bring a single unmounted photo no larger than 8 x 10 in a folder or envelope. You will receive a number for yourself, and another will be assigned to your photo.
We will call out a lucky number (not yours) and you get to keep the corresponding photo. Then get to know that's member, if you don't already know them. Fun way to introduce you to others and explain your nature photographer circle of friends.
THIRD MEMBER'S SLIDE SHOW
For the members slide show, send your best or favorite photos from any competition during the past year or something from the past year you would like to share.

I will put together the slide show, give your name and image title for each image. I will attempt to include all photo submitted.
Several volunteers are needed to come a little early and help with getting everything setup.
Please post a reply if you plan to attend, what yummy food you will bring, if you plan to bring a photo to swap and are planning to submit photos for the slide show. And, if you are willing come a little early and help with setup. Very Much Appreciated!
See you Wednesday, December 7th. Remember. Remember, NO MEETING Nov 23rd (Thanksgiving Week) or Dec 28th (following Christmas)!
So, everyone plan to come, enjoy the Member's Photo SWAP, viewing Member's Slide Show and bring some good food & treats. But most importantly let’s mingle, get to know each other better AND just have FUN!
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!
