Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the big Kahuna of holidays, Christmas is coming down on us rapidly, like Santa’s sled with jet propulsion. This year, this last Club party of the year, The Tacoma Film Club Potluck, will happen on December 3, the first Saturday of the month. We feel that will leave the rest of the month for holiday shopping, trips, and Christmas affairs.
“It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching out of the self to one’s fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas spirit,” –Isabel Currier.
As in the past, this invitation will go out to TFC members only, and they may bring guests. Usually there is a nice spirited turn out. Put a big red circle around Saturday, December 3, 2011, and plan to attend. The Club will not have any screenings ordiscussions in December. We will have the 2012 TFC membership cards available at the first Friday screening in January, so those folks who want to take care of their renewals can do it right out of the gate.
“Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it ‘white’.”–Bing Crosby.
The Christmas party, as in the past, is a pot luck, with people bringing whatever they want to share. Trying to regulate who brought what food was difficult to monitor and seemed restrictive to some members in the past. It will be held at 924 Broadway, our regular meeting place. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and the meals can start around 6:00 p.m. There is a microwave and oven in the kitchen area for those folks who want to warm up their food. Wine, soft drinks, and coffee will be provided free by the Club; part of our appreciation for your member support all year.
“Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.”
There will be no holiday film screening during the party, just fellowship and sharing. There has been volunteers who did the decorations and set up. Any one who feels they could help with the clean up after the party will be very appreciated. There will be separate tables for wine and beverages, entries, and desserts. Attire can be as formal or informal as you wish, but remember bibs are not provided.
“The primary message of Christmas is: ‘we are not alone’.” –Taylor Caldwell.
This third, and final, official TFC party of 2012 is always tremendous fun; a chance to hoot and holler, have some great food, and meet spouses and member’s friends who might not attend our regular events. See you at the party!!!
