November 2012 Meeting – Holiday Party

Our next meeting on November 6th is the annual Toys for Tots holiday meeting. Everyone is invited to attend and help us celebrate this worthy cause. If you have time in the next month please help us out by making a toy to bring along. Those of you who have toys to donate, bring them in as soon after 5:00PM as you can.

The Marine Corps will be there to pick up the toys and take them to their distribution center. This is our opportunity to give back to the community and have a lot of fun at the same time.

The lodge will open at 5:00PM to set up and bring in toys. (Lots of help will be needed to set up the tables and get the room ready.) Dinner will be at 6:00, with the main meeting at 7:00.

Our traditional dinner is pizza from Costco and Laura’s famous Caesar salad. Once again, we will charge an exorbitant $5 each for dinner, but you all are on the honor system. A “financial receptacle” will be in the area of the pizza boxes (and will be guarded with a security camera, in case someone needs a new band saw).

Toys for Tots night has always been a special social evening with a chance for the spouses to find out what we have been up to for the past 11 months and to catch up with old friends. We hope you can make it.
