Guild Holiday Party, Sat January 20, 2018!


Mark your calendars for this Guild traditional celebration of the Holidays and New Year.

Location:

The Veterans Memorial Hall of Benicia,
1150 1st. Street,
Benicia, CA 94510.

Time: tentatively 4 – 9 pm

Food: Holiday Potluck Supper. Please your favorite dish to share with others. Appetizers for the Social and Main courses are always appreciated. Microwave and refrigerator available. Dinnerware will be provided. 

Entertainment:  Family Friendly Slam Gift Exchange and More!
Share your talents. We are looking for 1-10 minute, family friendly vignettes. If anyone would like to perform a short piece at the January meeting, please contact ValerieNelson.

ADOPT A TABLE & TRIM THE ROOM:
Our dining area will have five foot round tables. Individuals and companies are invited to adopt a table. Bring in a tablecloth or covering for the table and any decorations to make it a wonderful table to dine at.

There will be prizes for participation, but the greatest prize of all is knowing that you’re lending your artistry to make the holiday party festive!

To adopt a table, contact Lee Armstrong.
Also, holiday decorations {any holiday!} for the room will be greatly appreciated.

Doors open at 4:30, so bring in some decorations (no nails please) to trim the room. At the end you just take your decorations down and take them home.

GIFT EXCHANGE: If you wish to participate in the exchange, bring a puppet related, wrapped gift to add to the pile (in the past, $10.00 approximate value has been suggested.) All who bring a gift will get to receive one.

PUPPET DISPLAY: Do you have a puppet that you’ve made, that you’d like to display? A table will be provided for an informal puppet exhibit, so bring your puppet (on a stand, if needed) and share your puppet(s) with others.

GUILD LIBRARY: The Guild library has hundreds of books covering a variety of topics. Books & DVD’s will be available for checkout at the meeting, to people that have been members for at least 6 months. Are you looking for books or DVD on a particular topic? Contact the Guild Librarian, Lee Armstrong,707 738-5906. She can email you a list and she can bring related books to next meeting.
