December 2014 Meeting – Christmas Party

The program for our Dec 2 meeting will be our second annual Christmas Dinner at Hillcrest Lodge. All members are invited to bring a guest for what will be a good time. We will again have a raffle to benefit Toys 4 Tots. Club elves (Jim Bucknell, Ed Pysher, and Al Ashley) have been busy collecting some great raffle items. We’ll have tools, wood, gift certificates and some neat things for the spouses in attendance who might not be woodworkers. The evening will also feature our 2×4 Woodworking Challenge and presentation of our annual Spirit Award.

Our evening will begin at 6:00 with a social hour that will give everyone a chance to view the raffle items and buy tickets. We’ll follow with a potluck dinner that begins at 7:00 with the club providing the main course (ham and rolls). All members are asked to bring a side-dish, entree, salad, or dessert. If you are unable to bring an item for the potluck, please still come to the meeting. We’ll have a donation bucket for Toys 4 Tots if you want to put in a few dollars as your contribution to the evening.

As a help to those preparing dinner we would ask that all members and guests please use the main entrance on the west side of Hillcrest Lodge. Your potluck items and 2×4 projects will be taken care of at the main door and you’ll be able to pick up a name tag for you and your guest. The sidewalk leading to the main entrance is off the west side of the parking lot about 75 feet south of the lodge. We look forward to seeing all of you there.
