Christmas Party Dec 7, 2023, 5:00-8:30 pm:

We need to get a headcount for all members, spouses or significant others planning on attending this year’s Christmas Party. Signup sheets for the dish you are bringing (appetizer, main dish or dessert) are on the table at our workshops.

For the steal a gift portion of the festivities (participation is not required, but it is a lot of fun), please bring a wrapped gift of $15-$20 value. Consider a gift related to lapidary, wire wrapping, mineral collecting, etc. Note: you do not have to bring a gift, only those bringing one are eligible to participate in the steal.
