Dec 25: Open House

Message from Sandra and Garrison:

We are hosting an Open House on Christmas Day, Tuesday, 2018 December 25th.

Sandra hosted the first of these Open Houses in 1987 for 'waifs & strays', those who had no where else to go. That's where she and Garrison met and they have had (almost) annual celebrations since.

Waif, stray, or not, come and join them for Turkey and a friendly celebration of peace and Christmas, Newton's birthday, Hanukkah, HumanLight, Solstice, Kwanzaa, Eid al Fitr, it's Tuesday, or for any other reason*.

Starting around 3 PM with the feasting beginning between 4 and 5 PM. Bring a dish to share and your BYOB. Coffee, tea, and pop will be supplied along with the Turkey. Significant others are welcome.

If you would let us know you are planning to attend, that would be great. But even if you don't RSVP, you are welcome to come anyway.
