When: Sunday, December 16, 6:00pm
Where: Merrilee's Home
What: Our Annual Christmas Party

Mark your calendars for Sunday, December 16, at 6:00pm for this year's annual Christmas Party.  Merrilee has graciously volunteered to host it again. The theme this year is COFFEE!  It could be something coffee colored, something with images of coffee, or something the creative people in our group find (or make) to bring!  For our "challenged" gift shoppers, a coffee gift card, actual coffee, or a coffee thermos is A-OK, but NO mugs!  Present cost $20-$25 (excluding tax and wrapping costs)  It will be a potluck, once again, so RSVP Merrilee to let her know you are coming and what dish you plan to bring.

If you would like to donate your $20 to help the victims of the Camp Fire in Paradise, in lieu of the gift exchange, Sue Ballard will take cash or check, written to her, so that she can send in a group check.  If you would like to participate in the gift exchange, as well as making a $20 donation, then bring your cash or check and your gift to the Christmas Party.  If you are unable to attend and would like to donate, please send your check to Sue Ballard.  If you have already donated or have some other "plan".....Just Do It!

We meet every Saturday morning at 9:00 am at Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena.  There is a Starbucks nearby if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or pastry. This month our coffee field trip will be on Saturday, December 29, to Voyager Craft Coffee in Santa Clara (3985 Stevens Creek Blvd).
