annual holiday party
Upholding a great tradition, OSSC will suspend the normal
presentation-oriented format for our December meeting and instead hold our
Annual Holiday Party. As usual, this will be a "pot luck" affair, with
everyone bringing 8-10 portions of their favorite holiday specialty, be it
appetizer, main dish, side dish, salad, or dessert. In addition to bringing
food, all attendees are encouraged to participate in the "Holiday Gift
Exchange Game" by bringing a wrapped gift of approximately $10-$15 in value.
(The rules of the game will be reviewed at the meeting.) And for those members
wishing to give back to the community during this holiday season, we will again
be collecting unwrapped toys for the Toys for Tots campaign. We have been
advised that toys appropriate for teens are especially welcome. We will also be
collecting cans and packages of food for those who are less fortunate. While there will
no ribbon judging of orchids at this special meeting, members are
encouraged to show their holiday spirit and creativity by bringing a
holiday-themed presentation of orchids. This meeting will also be the
occasion for the membership to elect the officers and board
members for the upcoming term. We are looking forward to a lot of fun and
holiday cheer at this great social event, and hope all members can join us!
