The Holiday gathering will be in place of our December meeting. Many members have volunteered to bring treats from pulled pork to cakes, salads, cookies etc. If you wish, members are welcome to bring any of their favorite goodies to share. All spouses are welcome!
We will also have a Silent Auction. We are featuring, for sale, the two Shaker tables that were built for the Art Crawl. These would be great Christmas gifts!
We also welcome any other items to add to the auction. These may be old tools that are no longer used laying around the shop, to handmade holiday decorations etc. All proceeds are to benefit the CMWA. Please bring these items before 6:45 so that we can prepare the auction bills before the party.
We will have a very short meeting starting at 7:00 and move on to socializing for the rest of the evening.
See you at the party! December 17th 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Paramount.
