Our December meeting will be on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 12:00 PM at the Village Tavern in Winston-Salem. The address is 2000 Griffith Road. After we eat, we will play the “Dirty Santa” game. Everyone one is asked to bring a gift ($10 limit). All the gifts will be put in the center, and we will draw numbers. The first person will choose one of the gifts. The second person can then choose either the gift of the previous person(s) or a new gift from the center. This continues until the last person has chosen their gift. Then the first person can choose any of the gifts others have received or keep the one originally chosen. We hope everyone will make plans to attend this fun Christmas meeting!
Our next meeting will be on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 5:00 PM. We will meet at The Depot at Cody Creek in Dobson. The address is 112 Old Depot Lane. Please note the special time at 5:00 PM.
