December Holiday Party Meeting:
Will be held during our regular meeting date – December 19th. It will begin at 11am. Food will be served at noon. Jason is providing a turkey. Members are requested to bring a dish, dessert, condiments, soft drinks/coffee/tea. Families are welcome. Members are requested to contact MaryLou DeVane as to how many will be in attendance with you and what you will be bringing. Her telephone number is: 386-237-7712.
COVID-19 restrictions will be maintained. Members are required to wear a mask. Hand sanitizer will be available. Food will be served by a few of our members (rather than as in the past, when we served ourselves). The server will be wearing gloves in addition to masks. Social distancing will be maintained.
A bonsai related white elephant gift “exchange” will be held for interested members. The wrapped gift should cost $15.00-$20.00. We had a lot of fun last year and I anticipate even more fun this year! A Bonsai White Elephant Gift Exchange is the placing of all gift wrapped bonsai related gifts on a table. The first person to take a gift choses which gift they want. It is then opened so that everyone can see what it is. The second person can then chose a gift from the table OR the gift the first person took. Etc, Etc. Etc. (The person from whom the gift was taken gets to chose another gift – either from the table or from someone else.). All of the gift exchange rules will be discussed before the gift exchange begins.
Please call MaryLou or Jeanne with any questions. Jeanne’s cell phone number is: 973-727-3088. You may also text Jeanne and she will get back to you the same day. We hope everyone can attend this event and help celebrate our respective holidays and THE END of this unbelievable year – 2020!
