Potluck and elections moved to Dec. 14, 2022
The annual Holiday potluck will be held Dec. 14, 2021 from 6:30pm-9pm, and will kick off with the annual election of Board of Directors, followed by our usual festive White Elephant gift exchange.
For the election each member in good standing present will be given a QR code for a ballot, or a paper ballot. Voting can take place during the potluck. Votes will be tallied and the results will be announced.
For the White Elephant gift exchange each player brings one wrapped gift to contribute to a common pool of presents. Everyone draws a number from a basket and when their number comes up they are allowed to choose a gift from the unwrapped gifts, or steal from a previous player. Once a gift has been "stolen" twice it can no longer be taken by a subsequent player. To keep things fun, there is a $15 limit on gifts, and you don't need to purchase something new. You can regift that ugly sweater you got last Christmas if you like. Kids are welcome to participate, but be sure to explain the rules of the game so there are no hurt feelings.
6:30 -7:00 pm check-in and sign guest book. Members who paid their annual dues by March 31, 2022 will be given a QR code for online voting, or a paper ballot if preferred.
7:00 - 7:30pm Bring a dish to share and reconnect with friends and neighbors.
During dinner, nominations will be taken, and candidates will make short informal remarks. Members in good standing can mark their ballots.
7:45 pm Results of voting announced
