(Build the Same Subject)

Holiday Party - This year, the party will be a pot luck although the chapter club will provide some sandwiches, soft drinks, and bottled water.  This will be a family event so significant others and children are more than welcome (don’t forget their masks).  Everyone attending is asked to bring a food item, preferably a covered dish, but please, don’t everyone bring desserts.  Also,  we’ll have our traditional gift exchange.  If you would like to participate, bring a wrapped kit to put on the table.  Please, make it something that you would like to receive as a gift.

Gift ExchangeThere will also be a gift exchange that runs similar to the raffle.  If you bring a wrapped gift (something that you would like to receive) you will receive a ticket. When the ticket is called you come up and select a wrapped package. After all numbers are called, if you want to do a trade you can.  Then everyone opens their packages to see what they got.  If you don’t like the item, then you can begin trading for something else.

The Holiday Party is a Family Event so the whole family is welcome!

Masks MUST be worn for entry into Fairfax High School
