December 20: Holiday Potluck and Gift Exchange
This month culminates another year for our society. For our members that are not able to get to our monthly meetings, we hope that many of you will be able to join us for the holiday potluck. This month’s meeting will be an opportunity for us to socialize and partake of great food. The society is providing an organic turkey and organic ham. We are asking you to bring a dish to share– drinks, appetizer, vegetable dish, rolls, desserts, etc. Dan Arcos is tracking our food items. Go to for list. Please try to remember to bring serving silverware for the dish that you bring. We will provide plates, cups, silverware, and napkins. Our club will provide a plant for each member.
