Please join us for a Holiday Celebration by bringing baked goods to share with fellow members and guests. Please bring guests! We will be starting our meeting 30 minutes early (at 7:00 pm) to give enough time for our Gary L. Acquistapace Memorial Donation Fundraising Auction. COVID has been unkind to our club’s finances. Without shows these past two years, the club requires funds and hopes to do so with generous donations to the club which will be auctioned off at our December meeting. Some of the auction items can be found at https://mikewagner3.wixsite.com/2022auction. Click for the list of auction items.  Please support your club by donating to the auction and purchasing auction items. Your generosity is much appreciated. We will also be holding the monthly drawing and youth drawing. We look forward to seeing you, and sharing holiday desserts, at this warm holiday celebration full of comradery on Friday, December 9th. (Don’t forget to bring a dessert to share. Thank you!)
