Jazzing up the Holiday Potluck Again This Year!!
Ruth Garcia-Corrales (chapter recording secretary) is once again organizing the entertainment for our party this year. Last year Ruth scheduled Chris Bennett, the Grammy-nominated jazz singer, who entertained us with her singing and piano playing and got us all in the holiday spirit with sing-alongs. We'll see what Ruth has in store for us this year!
++ Please note...our Holiday Potluck will remain a gathering to renew and revitalize our friendships and to make new connections, and we are delighted to add interest and pizazz to the party with holiday entertainment for the second straight year! We hope each of you can attend the party...and please bring family and friends to share in the evening!
Last year we collected books and teddy bears for a women's and children's shelter, and this year we are hoping to collect 100 books and bears!
BRING TO THE PARTY:
* a favorite potluck dish (no desserts, please...they are already organized)
* a Book Buddy (teddy bear or other stuffed animal) and a children's book to be donated to a shelter for women and children
* your family and your friends
To be sent in an email!
