December General Membership Meeting
SAWC Holiday Party & General Membership Meeting
Tues, Dec 5, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
Elks Lodge, 39 Shadow Lake Rd, Salem.
Join us for holiday festivities!
We'll start with cheese, crackers, and a holiday punch. Then, we'll enjoy a delicious catered luncheon, have fun with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and participate in a free raffle with lots of gifts to be given away. We'll also have a Christmas carol sing-along and a community service project called Caregiver Treat Hugs.
The cost for the delicious hot buffet of salad, rolls, penne chicken, and broccoli or chicken cordon bleu with pilaf, plus coffee, tea, dessert, and cold drinks is $20 per person. Members can attend the meeting without partaking in lunch.
In addition to the festivities, there will also be a Holiday Cash Bar to help you get into the spirit of the season. We hope to see you there!
If you'd like to have lunch, please RSVP by November 27.
Instructions for the
Caregiver Holiday Treats
Who doesn't love Holiday Treats?
We know we do!
So why not share your favorite holiday treats with us and others?
It's time to break out your favorite holiday treats*. After our holiday lunch in December, we'll enjoy an explosion of different holiday treats baked by our members! In addition, we will put together Treat Hugs for our communities' caregivers.
If you are participating, please create three dozen goodies and package them as described below:
Caregiver Holiday Treat Hugs Community Service Project:
Two dozen treats for community caregivers. To ensure good hygiene and safety, please divide your treats into small baggies before bringing them to the meeting. Use your judgment to decide how many cookies to put in each baggie, considering they are for the caregiver's snack. To help you determine the right amount, consider how many treats you would eat while having a cup of coffee or tea.
SAWC will provide supplies to create festive appreciation bags for the treats during the meeting. Once completed, our SAWC elves will deliver the treats to local caregivers later.
Holiday Dessert Buffet:
One dozen of your favorite holiday goodies on a plate or in a box for the whole club to enjoy after lunch.
Put your name on the containers that you want back
You can participate in the dessert buffet without buying the holiday lunch ($20)
Email or bring a hard copy of your recipe(s) to the meeting so we can share them on the website.
Not a baker? No time to bake? Don't want to bake: Store-bought is okay!
* Treats can be anything yummy - cookies, brownies, bars, candy, etc. The Treat Hugs must be shelf-stable, not fragile, and fit into a baggie. Cakes, parfaits, pies, cheesecakes, and cannoli are not good choices for the Treat Hugs.
