A Holiday Celebration!
Date: Tuesday, Dec. 12th (Please note early meeting date)
Location: Garden of the Gods Club, Garden Room
Time: 10:45–11:00 Social/Sign in/Gift Drop Off
11:00–11:25 Holiday Music by Marguerite Buhr and Lucritia Burdo
11:25–11:50 Business Meeting, Hope & Home
11:50–1:30 Holiday Buffet
It’s time for our the most magical meeting of the year as we join in a special performance of holiday songs by Marguerite Buhr and Lucritia Burdo, present our Christmas gifts for the foster children of Hope & Home, and feast upon the Garden of the Gods Club’s spectacular holiday buffet.
If you selected a Wish Card and are providing gifts for the children of Hope & Home, please bring your unwrapped Christmas present to the December meeting or have a friend drop it off. You may leave gifts with the valet at the entrance to the Club. Please securely attach the original Hope & Home tag to the gift or bag so they will know which child should receive the gift. If you purchased multiple gifts for a child, please securely attach the child’s name and age to each one.
If you were unable to pick up a Wish Card at our November meeting or would like to pick up more, please go to Cheryl Johnson’s house at 2520 Hill Circle. She has placed a bag filled with cards next the KCWC box on the porch. This year, the cards simply give the child’s age and first name. You may pick up gifts appropriate for that child, or provide gift cards from stores such as Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, etc.
This year’s lavish Holiday Buffet includes an indulgent selection of salads, soups, hot side dishes, and our favorite — the decadent dessert table. Our entrees include Chicken Marsala with Cremini Mushrooms and Whole Wheat Penne Pasta, Sliced Herb Roasted Turkey with Traditional Stuffing, Gravy, Cranberry Relish, and Grilled Pork Loin at the Carving Station
As a holiday thank you to our members, the KCWC is subsidizing this exquisite luncheon, keeping the cost at just $20, the same price as our monthly lunches. Because we are contributing a significant part of the cost, we ask that this be a KCWC Members Only event. If you absolutely must bring a guest, we ask that they pay our actual cost of $38, which includes the meal, tax, tip and coffee service.
Please RSVP to Cheryl Johnson no later than 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 7th to let us know if you will be attending the program and lunch ($20) or program only (no charge). Even if you will not attend lunch, we need your RSVP so that we will have enough seating and can prepare a nametag for you. You may mail or drop off your check in the KCWC box on the front porch at 2520 Hill Circle. Please write “luncheon” on the memo line so we know the check is for this event. We hope you can join us for this special holiday program.
Bad weather? Need a ride to the meeting?
If we have inclement weather on the day of one of our monthly meetings and you feel uncomfortable driving, please contact one of our board members (phone numbers in your directory) and we will help arrange a ride to the meeting.
If you forgot to renew your KCWC membership this year, you can reactivate your membership by clicking on the KCWC Renewal link (below). That way, you can continue to enjoy the fun, programs and activities with your KCWC friends!
Please send your renewal form along with your check for $50. Thanks. We look forward to sharing another wonderful year with you.
