The official holiday season may be over, but we're not done celebrating just yet! Join us Wednesday, Jan. 14 at 6:30pm for our annual Post-Holiday Party in the downstairs party room at The Colonnade. We'll provide a catered dinner, and we hope you can help add to the festivities by bringing a dessert or drink to share. Catch up with old friends and make some new ones. If you have a friend who should be part of WNBA, bring him/her with you!
If you want to participate in the book exchange, bring a wrapped book (or two) you enjoyed reading and label it by genre. If you bring a book, you can take a book someone else dropped off.
Help us support our literacy partner The Reading Connection by bringing an unwrapped new children's book to the post-holiday party. TRC distributes these books to at-risk children and their families to help them create and sustain literacy-rich environments. For many children, the books TRC provides are the only books they can call their own.
We're always looking for volunteers to help setup the room or clean-up at the end of the party. If you're interested in helping with this event or want to help plan a future event, contact us at WNBAinfoDC [at] gmail.com.
