Holiday Festivities

Happy Holidays are upon us again!
Marla Hattabaugh has graciously offered to host this year's holiday party!

Saturday, December 20th
11:00 - 2:00pm
6339 E. Mitchell Dr.Scottsdale, AZ 85251

As usual it will be a pot luck so bring something yummy. If you want to know what to bring you could follow this breakdown: Last names beginning with A-J bring a side dish, K-Q bring a dessert and R-Z bring a main dish. Otherwise...just bring whatever you want to! I will bring a pecan pie with a slice missing... my specialty. Marla will be making a batch of chili.

Ornament Exchange
Optional: Bring a handmade ornament to exchange. Make sure it is wrapped and keep the cost under $10 worth of materials. There was no vicious stealing last year, but we shall see what this year brings.
