December’s luncheon meeting, December 10, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., will be our Annual Christmas Boutique! Please get your reservations in early as this is a very popular event! You will find lots of gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah or just for yourself. Enjoy a glass of bubbly on us and also enjoy our once-a- year elaborate buffet lunch with a choice of chicken, fish or steak and multiple side dishes!
This is our holiday auction. We all bring our nice items that we don’t, haven’t, and won’t use. Maybe a gift from someone that is just not your style, size, or color, maybe jewelry, china, crystal, handmade items, crafts. Some bring homemade cookies, pies, cakes, etc. This is the time to clean out your closets and cabinets and bring those items to the meeting. We will price them for you, or you can give us an idea of their value and we will put the silent auction card out on display and then you can all shop! (Please no paperback books.)
If you are bringing auction gifts, you can come at 10:30 to drop off your items to be priced and tabled.
