Dec 14, 2019 – Christmas Party: The next general meeting will be the annual Christmas Party on December 14th with doors open at 4 pm and dinner served at 5 pm.  The party will again be at the Carson City Airport terminal building. Dee and Rick Frewert will prepare main entrees of erb roasted chicken and stuffed pork, provided by the Chapter, and each of the attendees will be asked to bring a dish to round out the meal. Attendees, in addition to their food offering, should also bring the beverage of their choice – coffee and bottled water will be provided. With regard to the food brought by the attendees, each of our members will be polled by a member of the Christmas Party Committee and assigned a dish if they answer in the affirmative. Because the Chapter is providing the main entrees and because of the food contributed by the members, there will be no cost to the participants. But you should bring your check book anyway – Walt will be accepting 2020 dues. Finally, there will be a gift exchange for those that wish to participate and it is asked that the gifts be in the $15 – $25 value/cost range.
