December 10th, Christmas Party:
Christmas Party: food, fun and white elephant gift exchange.
We can bring five of our favorite images on flash drive to the party and Tyler will look after projecting the images onto the big screen. If we have the ability, we could add our names or initials, to the right hand corner of the image.
The party starts at 5:30. Bring your “Favorite Five” images, these can be older photos if you wish. You can bring photos in by way of a flash drive, CD or photo albums to share with others. Also each person present should bring a White Elephant gift. Cliff mentioned the fun we have at our Christmas party, which is scheduled for Friday, December 10 (11th storm date). Doors will be open at 5:30, eating planned for 6:00 – this is to accommodate getting out before the alarm goes off at 11:00.
It is to be held at St. John’s Anglican Church hall – Church Street. From previous years we know to layer clothing, possibly bringing a sweater. A gift for the white elephant exchange (something that was once useful to you but now you have grown tired of – value of no more than $15.00). How you wrap this gift is totally up to your imagination.And yes, it is a potluck, a time when you can bring a friend or partner to share in this very social evening. If you are two people (or more), then please bring two (or more) different food dishes, to share. That might be a salad, a dessert, or a main food dish.
At the entrance there is a doorbell on the upper left hand side of the door. When wehear the bell ring up stairs then someone will run down and let you in.
