  On December 6th 2017 we will be having our annual special Christmas celebration, just like last year. The December meeting will take place at the usual place; the Knox United Church Meeting Hall, 2569 Midland Avenue beginning at 8:00 pm. It will feature a Christmas Party and a celebration of a another successful year.  This social event is a great time to mix  and mingle, catch up with old friends and meet new ones. 

As usual there will be silent auction tables. So bring a bit of cash and pick up something you don’t have.  Or you area a member you can put a few of your own items on the silent auction tables.  Remember all proceeds go the donor.  Also you may book a table to sell a few things you’ve made or collected. Or you can demonstrate your craft at the table you have booked. No Charge for the table; but book early.   All proceeds from the sales tables are yours to keep.

You will be able to buy raffle tickets for a few items, and maybe win a prize or two. Tickets are 50 cents each or $5.00 a yard.   Expect the Auction Committee to offer some really good bargains.

 All those who attend will asked to bring your favourite Christmas snack. Please label your items as there may be  someone with food allergies. Beverages will be provided by the club. You are also encouraged to donate a non-perishable item for the local food bank. We will also be collecting craft items for the Sick Kids Hospital. Giving is part of the Christmas spirit.

You Must Sign up for a sales table and/or a Demo Table because we don’t have room for very many tables.  If you’re a member of the Gem and Mineral Club of Scarborough (Join tonight) and you wish to sell or demonstrate at our Christmas party, please  email us
 We’ll need a little help to set up chairs, silent auction tables in the hall, sales and demonstration tables as well take as take down after the meeting.

 For entertainment, we’ll be showing excerpts from the International Agate Symposium held in July, 2016 in Wisconsin.  After you view part of this presentation, you’ll never look at an agate in the same way.

 For everybody who volunteered to help with set-up before the meeting starts; set-up time begins around 6:30.  Thank you so much.

 There is another reason for attending this celebration.  Come on out and see who the Member of the Year will be.
